A Victorian banking hall turned boutique hotel in the financial district.

East London is now putting up a fight against the ever-crowded West End and beckoning visitors towards St Paul’s Cathedral, the Tate Modern and One New Change --- a new mall that is home to chef Jamie Oliver’s restaurant, Barbecoa. Adding to the area's allure is Threadneedles, which opens into an enormous atrium covered by a stunning stained-glass dome hand-painted in 1856. Bottles of champagne wrapped in gold wire wind up the walls in a space where guests can drink at the Honesty Bar; you can help yourself, as long as you're honest and swipe your room card for direct billing. The 69 bedrooms have a masculine feel, reflecting their mainly corporate guests. Beige and cream interiors are brought to life by rich burgundy bedspreads and silk pillows, wireless broadband is free, and each guest receives a welcome card handwritten by the manager. Soft-lit bathrooms are tiled in cream, stocked with Korres natural products and fitted with a plasma TV to watch while lounging in the bath. Guests can order treats from the bathroom menu: a glass of champagne and strawberries for ladies, or Cognac and almond biscuits for gentlemen. At night staff dim the lights, tune the radio to soothing classical FM and turn down the Egyptian cotton sheets so guests can enjoy a good night’s sleep.
