The Hoxton Hotel in east London is opening a central London property in May 2014.
As reported last year (see news, November 2012) the hotel will be located at 199 – 206 High Holborn, a Grade II listed building.
There will be 174 rooms over five floors, with three room categories: comfy, cosy and tiny.
Each bed has a duck-down duvet and 280 thread count linen. En-suite bathrooms are black and white tiled with walk-in showers.
The hotel will also provide complimentary breakfast bags on request. Guests can hang the paper bag outside the door, which will then be filled overnight with a granola yoghurt, banana and orange juice.
As with the original Hoxton hotel most of the public spaces will be run by The Soho House group, owners of the eponymous private members club.
The main restaurant will be another Hoxton Grill, serving American food in an industrial style conservatory space. In the basement there is the Chicken Shop, a casual dining outlet serving rotisserie chicken. On the ground floor a coffee shop will be run by an East London seller. There will also be a nail salon on the ground floor.
The meetings and events space is also run in collaboration with Soho House, and is called the Apartment. The space is a collection of individually designed meeting rooms set around an open plan kitchen (above), which is pre-stocked with soft drinks, hot drinks and sweets.
The hotel has free-wifi throughout, one hour of free phone calls to landlines (and US mobiles) in the UK, USA, Australia and most of Europe and a “supermarket-priced” lobby shop.
Room rates start at £69.
