A sleek East End hotel with 142 rooms and suites overlooking the Thames
Designed by Philippe Starck, this modern hotel is geared toward business travelers drawn to the new business hub of Canary Wharf. The ten-story tower houses 142 of the largest rooms and suites in London, many with bang-up river views, with oversize windows and black-walnut furnishings. A small spa offers Organic Pharmacy treatments, and a small fitness room gets the job done, though guests have privileges at the health club next door. The restaurant serves Italian cuisine in a relaxed, informal dining room and al fresco on the terrace overlooking the Thames—making the most of the views that are one of the hotel’s strongest selling points.
In the Area
The hotel was built on West India Quay, formerly the center of England’s spice trade. Now the neighborhood is London’s buzzing new financial district, but there’s more than office towers here: local destinations include the Billingsgate Fish Market, the largest inland fish market in the UK, and Plateau restaurant, which offers monthly wine tastings. Slightly further afield in East London is Bistrotheque, a long-running restaurant that helped shift London’s center of cool to the east.
