The Thompson Hotel Group, Belgraves, London

Project: The Thompson Hotel Group, Belgraves, London

Nestled among upmarket Belgravia residential blocks and embassy buildings, behind a bland 1970s façade, is the surprising and luxurious boutique hotel ‘Belgraves London’. The first hotel outside of the US for the Thompson Hotel Group, Belgraves offers the intimate appeal of a private club combined with chic city design that brings a touch of Brooklyn to Belgravia. With interior design by Tara Bernerd & Partners, Belgraves has a New York loft feel inside with exposed brick walls, casual-cool doormen and an alluring glass-fronted fire. The hotel facilities combine New York attitude with British hospitality.

The 85 rooms, including 14 suites, are spacious and glamorous with wide-plank hardwood floors and sleek contemporary lines warmed by rich textures from grey wool, purple velvet and eclectic artworks. The bathrooms are clad with Arabescato marble and feature dark wood vanity units with smoked glass tops and brass beaded curtains along the glazed wall that divides bathroom and bedroom. The brassware and showers that ensure guests enjoy a pampering and refreshing experience in the bathroom are from German specialist Hansgrohe.  With the quality of the bathroom ranking highly as a priority for hotel guests, Belgraves London made the decision to install fittings that ensure reliable performance and timeless design.
