Unique Luxury Hotel in Central London. This landmark building, whose ornate terracotta facade is marked by four British Queens guarding the entrance, has always been a proper home for glamour. The building was originally designed in 1898, and today you'll feel that history the second you step into Kimpton Fitzroy London's lobby and gaze around, from the marble as far as the eye can see to the original Zodiac mosaic at your feet. The original details mingle well with refurbished touches throughout the property, from the 334 guest rooms to the four dining and drinking establishments. The fresh, comfortable interior design (by Tara Bernerd & Partners and Russell Sage Studio) tips a hat to the building's past without neglecting its present.
