Location: Just a stone's throw from the hustle and bustle of High Holborn in London sits this imposing Edwardian jewel.
Nestled in a quiet, cobbled courtyard that has a Dickensian charm, The Rosewood Hotel offers the perfect luxury base from which to enjoy London thanks to its easy access to Covent Garden and the West End's theatres.
Rooms: Over seven floors, there are 262 guestrooms split between Executive, Grand Executive (shown), Premier, Grand Premier and Junior Suite, as well as three levels of standard suites and 11 signature suites. Created by New-York-based interior designers Tony Chi and Associates, the refined rooms are decorated in a contemporary, cool colour palette and have a really smart, cosmopolitan feel. Lacquered surfaces, textured woods and prismatic mirrors combine to produce a stylish blend of traditional and modern design.
Famous For: Its recently renovated Renaissance-style Grand Pavonazzo marble staircase and its Scarfes Bar, which is named after British artist and caricaturist Gerald Scarfe whose artwork graces its walls. The Rosewood Hotel also prides itself on its ‘relationship hospitality', offering guests an intuitive service that's bespoke to each individual.
Celebrity Guests: As one of London's top five-star hotels, it's no surprise that The Rosewood won't disclose any of its celebrity guests.
