GETAWAY – LONDON
An Artful Stay in London: Hotel Café Royal
Perfectly composed. That’s a fitting design brief and tag line for a London hotel in a historic building owned by the Queen.
The Wilde room especially is sumptuous. The only part of the original Café Royal (a restaurant born in 1865) that remains, it’s a portal into another, more extravagant time. Every surface that isn’t mirrored is gilded. Its red leather chairs fill every afternoon with London’s smart set, in from their offices nearby in the West End.
