I have for many years wanted to stay in this Philippe Starck designed hotel just steps from St Martin’s in the Fields and near the site of the long lost bar ‘Brief Encounter’.
A redesign and upgrade in 2015 retains Starck’s unique style.
My room is at the end of the hall
and is on a corner, giving me an internal hallway encased with floor-to-ceiling windows. (There are curtains to avoid voyeurism, if desired).
The leopard print carpet reminds me of pug footprints (am clearly missing my dog).
It will be more convenient than my usual accommodation as in my remaining days I have an evening at the opera at Covent Garden and a tour of Southbank.
