Courthouse Hotel Review

: Mick Jagger and John Lennon once stayed here. Well, sort of. Before this property's transformation into a hotel, it was the Great Marlborough Street Magistrate's Court, site of the first obscenity trial for a comic book in English history (Lennon) and Jagger's trial for alleged pot possession. Great use has been made of the court's history, incorporating it into various aspects of the hotel --- three private booths in the bar are former women's cells, iron bars separate the lobby lounge from the bar, Silk restaurant is in the old Number One Court, suites are housed in former judges' robing rooms and the Lalique Suite was once the London residence of the Metropolitan Police Commissioner. All 112 rooms are designed in light taupe and butterscotch through to chocolate and burgundy, and come fitted with laptop-size safes, air-conditioning, two-line phones with voicemail and free Wi-Fi (available throughout the hotel). Accommodations for corporate guests include desks that extend into boardroom tables and beds that disappear into walls for a more professional atmosphere. Dining includes Carnaby, serving modern French cuisine. Of note: the screening room with 100 apple green leather chairs.
