New on the Block – The Beaumont Hotel
At Effective Event Solutions we work with a huge range of hotels (from New York high flyers, to Scandi cool design hotels) so we always keep an eye out for ‘The Next Big Thing’ … The Beaumont opened it’s doors in the autumn of 2014, welcoming guests into sumptuous art deco surroundings.
Just a few months since opening, the hotel has certainly proved it’s luxury credentials with rave reviews on tripadvisor and a thumbs up from The Telegraph newspaper. So what makes it so special?
The Beaumont is Jeremy King and Chris Corbin’s first hotel, adding to their enviable portfolio of arguably London’s finest restaurants. Evoking the elegance and personalised hospitality of pre-war Mayfair, it is grand in style and yet intimate in feel. With 73 rooms, including 23 suites. The hotel includes a classic Grill Room, an American Bar, a separate Residents’ Bar & Lounge, a Boardroom, and a Gymnasium and Spa with Hamam.
By far the stand out element of this new hotel is ROOM; a suite in the form of an inhabitable sculpture by Antony Gormley. Clearly visible from the exterior, the juxtaposition of a three storey high cuboid figure against the Art Deco, Grade II listed facade of the hotel is in itself fascinating.
The inside of ROOM by Antony Gormley is a dark fumed oak-clad bedroom in a one-bedroom suite, accessed up seven steps through a black curtain from a strongly contrasting, pure white marble bathroom, is just as important as its exterior: a giant crouching cuboid figure based on the artist’s body.
For meetings and events, this new hotel in London has The Lotos Room, a boardroom/private dining room space seating up to 16.
