London life on the up and up


A suite with its own postcode, restaurants from Michelin- starred chefs and a hotel complex that features a bowling alley; the capital’s hotel scene is going up a gear thanks to a wave of new international brands. Chloe Cann lines up the most exciting luxury options to sell to your clients


Mondrian London The Mondrian London will soon call the increasingly trendy South Bank home, taking up residence in Sea Containers House by the Thames on September 30. While most of the 359 rooms and suites will feature river views, the rooftop bar will provide guests with an even greater vista of the London skyline. The hotel will also boast a 56-seat screening room, designed to attract the film community in much the same way as the Mondrian in West Hollywood does. New York chef Seamus Mullen will take charge in the hotel’s kitchen, while master mixologist Ryan Chetiyawardana will preside over cocktail bar Dandelyan, which will feature drinks inspired by wild plants of the British countryside. ■ morganshotelgroup.com


Dorsett Central London has long been the preserve of luxury hotels, but the Dorsett, which opened on June 24, has branched out into Shepherd’s Bush. The Dorsett Hospitality International portfolio has 18 hotels in Asia, but this is the firm’s first hotel in the United Kingdom and Europe. Set within a Grade II-listed building built in 1923, and formerly a cinema, the Dorsett retains the property’s historic facade. There are 317 Chinese-inspired bedrooms across seven storeys. It has two restaurants: one a contemporary


brasserie style, the other a fine- dining Chinese restaurant. Also on- site is the Pavilion Spa, combining modern Western technology with traditional Asian health principles. ■ dorsetthotels.com


Ham Yard Hotel Covering a three-quarter-acre site in Soho, the Ham Yard Hotel is centred around a tree-filled courtyard and pedestrian thoroughfare. It features 91 bedrooms and suites and 24 residential apartments. The newly opened space links Great Windmill Street to Denman Street, opening up Ham Yard and Denman Place to the public for the first time since the 1960s. The area now features a “village” of high-end boutiques. Decked out in a modern British style with eclectic, colourful interiors, owners Kit and Tim Kemp have called the property their most “daring” design project to date. It aims to meet every need, with a 188-seat cinema, an original 1950s four-lane bowling alley imported from Texas and a leafy rooftop bar, while the spa and gym area has a hypoxic chamber for altitude training. ■ firmdalehotels.com
