A harmonious mixture of Baroque opulence and sleek minimalism.
At The London EDITION, common spaces are filled with grand architectural details, from the ornately molded ceiling and figures carved on the upper portion of the walls to the gallery of artwork in gilded frames that fill the walls of the hotel's restaurant. Guest rooms, however, may feature simple, polished wood flooring and walls, gauzy curtains and retro-mod lighting. Accommodations are equipped with writing desks, safes, mini-bars, complimentary wireless Internet, televisions and iPod docks. In addition to the 173 guest rooms, there are two bars, a restaurant, meeting rooms and an event space. The hotel's eclectic, sophisticated character makes it a choice location for a get-together over drinks or a polished home away from home. Located in London's Fitzrovia neighborhood, popular with artists and young people looking to escape the posh and pricey East End, The London EDITION is surrounded by galleries, restaurants and bars. Jason Atherton's Berners Tavern delivers modern European dishes such as halibut with squid ink risotto with garlicky squid and broccoli.
