St Martins Lane hotel in London has undergone a redesign and upgrading of its public areas and guest rooms.
The moves include the additional of a late-night cocktail lounge, Blind Spot, which has been designed by Tim Andreas, from interior design firm Banjo, as a homage to Philippe Starck, who originally designed St Martins Lane.
Among other changes, the 15-year-old property in Covent Garden has unveiled a new menu for the inhouse Asia de Cuba restaurant under the leadership of Cuban-born executive chef Luis Pous.
The restaurant’s décor has also been refreshed to “evoke the senses” of the Cuban capital Havana.
The hotel, which is part of Morgans Hotel Group, has given its 204 rooms a technological makeover with a new interactive mood lighting system, mirrored mini-bar, extra USB charging stations and a media hub featuring high-definition video and music playing facilities.
“St Martins Lane set the standard for what an urban resort should be as soon as it opened its doors 15 years ago,” said Jason Kalisman, interim CEO of Morgans Hotel Group.
“From its inception, St Martins Lane was utterly original, and we are confident that this re-launch will preserve and expand on the hotel’s legacy and define what British luxury is for the next generation to come.”
The hotel is offering relaunch rates from £275 including breakfast and one cocktail per person, based on two people sharing.
