Arrival/Check-In: Walking into The London NYC on a beautiful spring day, I was delighted to find a small but ultra-modern lobby. I was greeted, checked in and whisked off to my room in a New York minute.
Guest Quarters: As I entered my suite, I was taken aback by both the size and style. At more than 500 square feet, my room was larger than many New York apartments. The décor wove blue and brown tones through a variety of materials and textures. The attention to detail, from the furniture to the wallpaper to the bathrobes, was impressive.
The suite has a large, open floor plan. Upon entering, you are greeted by a wall of windows with a kidney-shaped sofa and glass table perfectly situated to take in the view. A modern wood desk and stylish chair make an efficient work space, with easy access to outlets and speedy wireless Internet.
Pass through into the bedroom to find a large, luxurious bed with Filli d’Oro Italian linens and a walk-in closet that provides access to the bathroom. Perhaps my favorite part of the suite, the bathroom was designed in collaboration with Waterworks and includes hand-cut glass tiles, a marble sink and modern metal fixtures.
Services/Amenities: When staying in a New York City hotel, it is hard to not count its location as an amenity. The London Hotel holds a prime position within walking distance of Central Park, Fifth Avenue shopping and Times Square.
Within the hotel, guests can enjoy dining at two restaurant creations from Chef Gordon Ramsay. Gordon Ramsay at the London Hotel serves modern French cuisine in an intimate setting, while Maze by Gordon Ramsay offers a more casual environment and small plates of French cuisine with an Asian flare. The London Bar serves wine and “small bites” of bar snacks in the evening and traditional English tea service in the afternoon.
The Experience: My experience at The London NYC was just delightful. Kudos to world-renowned interior designer David Collins for creating this oasis, smartly positioned in New York City. This hotel is well worth a visit — I cannot wait to return.
