Ham Yard Hotel
A sophisticated Soho choice for savvy London travelers.
An urban oasis in the heart of London’s vibrant Soho district near Mayfair, this upscale hotel is part of a massive effort that has repurposed historic Ham Yard as a blossoming new village-style development connecting Great Windmill and Denman Streets. Amid an enclave of shops, restaurants and theaters, Ham Yard Hotel offers 91 distinctive rooms and suites (each individually designed with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking either the courtyard or the London skyline), all targeting guests seeking style and substance. Award-winning designer Kit Kemp is the mastermind behind the hotel’s gorgeous modern British interiors and posh bathrooms dressed in granite and oak. The hotel grounds showcase a thriving garden highlighted by a bronze Tony Cragg sculpture; inside, a drawing room and library, a 190-seat theater, a 1950s-style bowling alley and a rooftop garden with stunning views invite guests to relax and unwind. As with other Firmdale Hotels in London and New York, Ham Yard houses its own restaurant and bar with a menu that revolves around seasonal ingredients and a well-vetted wine/cocktail list. Guests with lighter appetites also have the option to enjoy a full afternoon tea service in the hotel’s restaurant or in the drawing room.
