Batty Langley’s

This whimsically named boutique hotel pays tribute to a 16th-century doyenne.

Batty Langley’s

Yes, there really was a Batty Langley; in the early 1700s, the British maven wrote guidebooks about Georgian home planning, decorating and design. This hotel serves as a prime example of her domestic knowledge and prowess. Staying here is like stepping back in time. Guests can expect to find antique accessories, period rugs and rooms furnished in elegant traditional style. The décor is decadent, heavy on dark woods, rich colors and sumptuous fabrics. Another charming touch: all of the guest rooms and suites are named, not numbered. This is not to say that modern features have been overlooked — far from. Accommodations also include Wi-Fi and camouflaged televisions kitted out with Apple technology. Breakfast, including freshly baked croissants, starts the day off right. Guests can choose to partake in their rooms or with fellow visitors in the communal Library space. The hotel sits on the historic Spitalfields site in Old London, once home to a Medieval priory and now an emerging residential haven populated with upscale restaurants, shops and nightlife.
