Hidden in plain sight, close to Buckingham Palace, chic cafes, boutiques, bars, restaurants, and museums.
Whether we are talking about fashion, music, art, or design, London has long been a fearless trendsetter when it comes to embracing new ideas, and staying ahead of the curve. While other hotel chains are still asking themselves if they should provide battery charges to their guests, the Eccleston has managed to surpass other hotels by leaps and bounds by positioning itself at the fore of cutting edge technology.
Nothing about this hotel is traditional, save for its magnificently restored Georgian architectural shell. Those who appreciate design, expect their comfort and hi-tech needs met, and refuse to compromise on luxury, can proudly call the Eccleston a home away from home. Menus, maps, and leaflets do not clutter rooms; rather, guests have access to a wealth of hotel and tourist information via their Smartphone or tablet. Room service, reservations of any kind, real-time flight information – everything is available through one’s gadget.
The interior is refreshing and warm. Decadent black crystal chandeliers compliment a sophisticated monochrome grey scheme. High ceilings, oversized mirrors, and large, original windows enhance the light and airiness of the hotel. Even though the urban decor is contemporary, traditional afternoon tea is served by an open fireplace, on luxurious furnishings, and surrounded by silk walls.
The sensual rooms are designed to relax and recharge. Every one is equipped with hi-tech gadgets, heated floors, and Hästens massage beds. The bathroom transforms at the touch of a button with its smart glass wall that can be altered from transparent to frosted. The Eccleston hotel is the perfect blend of modernity and old world charm!
