Rosewood London: Typifying Edwardian Glamour

Rosewood London

It’s difficult to define luxury in one sentence; however two words certainly conjure the right thoughts and images when one thinks of luxury, Rosewood London.

Rosewood London

The capital’s latest luxury hotel, Rosewood London, based in Holborn, is a sprawling building, completed in 1914, and after extensive renovation finally opened its doors to an anticipatory clientele last year. We at Think Shaadi would like to congratulate Rosewood London on celebrating their 1 year anniversary this month, and of course for winning a wealth of awards and accolades over the last few months, including Best New Hotel in the World at the UltraTravel 100 Awards, Hotel of the Year at AA Hospitality Awards, Hotel of the Year 2014 at the Virtuoso Best of the Best Awards, along with being included in Conde Nast Traveler’s Hot List and Best Travel + Leisure in It List.

Rosewood London

An oasis of relaxation, slap bang in the heart of Britain’s bustling metropolis, Rosewood London is an impressive historic building, Edwardian in its facade, with typical French motifs, and a large courtyard, reminiscent of a French chateau. What we must remember is that King Edward VII was a devout Francophile, and during his short reign British architecture reflected that.

Walking into this vast, carefully looked after, courtyard, you are taken back by the fairytale exterior. Rich in elaborate brocades and distinctly French filigree patterns, it’s easy to see why Rosewood London has caused a stir amongst luxury connoisseurs.

Inside the theme is something of a mixture, the designs do not fit with one particular era, instead Rosewood London decided to recapture the luxury of differing times.

Rosewood London

The accommodations, event spaces and public areas were designed by the world renowned Tony Chi and Associates, who brought the intoxicating flavours of minimalism and understated beauty together, giving the areas a magnificently relaxing and comfortable feel, yet never negating the age old feel of luxury, which the building possesses in spades.

Tony Chi and Associates worked with an array of materials including lacquer, textured wood veneers and prismatic mirrors, to create this elegant fusion of modernity and old world style. The rooms are distinctly Tony Chi and Associates, with his highly recognisable stamp across it.

It’s wonderfully evocative, Tony Chi and Associates has created the perfect setting for honeymooners, travellers and anyone with a desire to simultaneously get away from it all, yet be at the centre of all London has to offer.

Holborn Dining Room 3

Holborn Dining Room and Delicatessen offers guests a warm and cosy atmosphere, yet is in no way cramped or cluttered. Designed by another world renowned artisan Martin Brudnizki, the theme feels a little like a New York speakeasy from the 1920’s, mixing a rich array of chic furniture, with a touch of the old and outstanding wood and mirror motifs.

Rosewood London

A striking salon tucked away in the heart of Rosewood London, the Mirror Room is the social hub of the hotel, offering innovative, elegant dining and afternoon tea. A veritable jewel box of a dining room, with mirrors on the walls and ceiling, the tables are laid with exquisite Limoges china, sparkling crystal and refined silverware. Whether meeting for a relaxed breakfast, light lunch, afternoon tea or a decadent dinner, it is the place to see and be seen on High Holborn.

Rosewood London

Rosewood London offers a selection of inspiring spaces to host a special event. The heritage Chairman Boardrooms showcase original architectural features of the former Pearl Assurance building whilst the Living Room provides a contemporary venue with eccentric artwork and intricate design details.

Gerald Scarfe, renowned British artist and caricaturist has lent his name and artistic vision to Scarfes Bar where his collection of amusing and conversation-provoking paintings adorn the marble walls. A creative menu of cocktails and complimentary live music six nights a week all add to the conviviality and certainly give true meaning to the phrase ‘get scarfed’  at Gerald’s eponymous bar where potions and paintings meet.

Rosewood London

Rosewood London is an outstanding achievement in luxury and high-end service. It adds to London’s status as the prime destination for all those dedicated to savouring the joys of luxury.
