The first UK hotel from boutique luxury brand Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants recently opened its doors in London’s Bloomsbury. Named after the original architect of the building, Charles Fitzroy Doll, Kimpton Fitzroy London occupies a full block on the edge of Russell Square within a Grade-II listed heritage building dating back to 1898.
It features 334 luxurious rooms and suites, a double-height ballroom, a palm court, modern meeting rooms, various restaurants and bars and a 24-hour fitness centre. The contemporary interior design by Tara Bernerd & Partners has a bold and playful edge, while keeping original features such as the lobby’s grand marble staircase. The hotel will host a complimentary daily champagne hour as a social gathering for hotel guests.
