Rosewood London – Heritage with Contemporary Elegance
Rosewood London is the ultimate luxury destination at 252 High Holborn. Set in a Belle Epoque building, at walking distance from Covent Garden, this luxury hotel is a fusion of English heritage and modern elegance. The central carriageway entrance to the hotel opens into an awe inspiring Edwardian courtyard where a slow food living market is held every week.
Reminiscent of an English manor home, the 262 rooms and 44 suites of this 5 star hotel are among the best in the British capital.
The stylish interiors of the hotel have been specially crafted to offer its guests a memorable stay steeped in opulence, while at the same time giving the guests a touch of British history and culture. Cuban mahogany, rare Swedish Green and Statuary marble are some of the materials used in the lavish interiors and one of the most impressive features of this London hotel is the Renaissance-style seven-storey grand staircase set in the stuff. It rises from both sides of the entrance and forms a bridge on the first floor and ascends through all the floors covered by an elliptical dome.
The Dining Experience
The Mirror Room
The soul of the English high tea culture has been beautifully captured in the Mirror Room with its jewel-box design consisting of floor to ceiling mirrors that reflect its stately elegance.
Designed by the notable interior designer Martin Brudnizki, the Scarfes Bar has a genial ambience with a fireplace (magnificently crafted with antique brass and bronze) and over a thousand antique books lining the shelves across the bar.
Holborn Dining Room
The design of Holborn Dining Room also goes to Martin Brudnizki’s credit. He has artistically blended an amusing and dynamic atmosphere with the historic grandeur of the hotel by utilising antique mirrors, rich red leather and tartan upholstery and oak furnishings.
Rosewood London is the quintessential destination for dining, whether it is a romantic date, a family dinner or a formal corporate meeting. You can take your pick from the diverse culinary experiences on offer and indulge yourself!
