Contemporary crash pad in London's revamped King's Cross 'hood with sleek rooms and an impressive bar
This contemporary crash pad manages to seamlessly cater to a corporate crowd without sacrificing the kind of stylish aesthetic hip weekenders expect. Funky light fixtures made from bowler hats and high-back armchairs in deep red and mustard sit next to a library-style business lounge in the vast open-plan lobby-cum-restaurant-cum-bar. Slate-gray walls, dark wood floors, graphic print wallpaper, mirrored columns and arty lighting create a buzzy vibe on check-in. Take a ride in the great glass elevator for a glimpse of the London skyline, or head to the upper corridors to peer over the red brick British Library, just next door.
Bed and Bath
There's plenty of slate gray kicking around in the 312 guestrooms, but it's broken up with pops of color (teal, mustard or fire-engine-red, depending on the room type). Plush striped carpets, scatter cushions and leather-look wall panels add warmth, and creature comforts include extra-wide platform beds with memory foam pillows, tea- and coffeemaking facilities (Nespresso machines come standard in the Deluxe Rooms) and a handy array of electrical sockets on either side of the bed. Arty photos depicting East London scenes dot the bedroom walls, and the corridors showcase impressive shots of British musicians including Morrissey and the Cure. The sleek bathrooms feature chunky slate-effect tiling, square rain showers and Roger & Gallet bath products.
The sprawling open-plan ground floor is divided into a series of zones in which to wine, dine, lounge and work. Breakfast and lunch are served from an open kitchen surrounded by gray leather booths. Chandeliers resembling giant dandelions dangle from the high ceiling and are reflected in the mirrored columns that divide the tables. In the evening the space transforms into the Golden Arrow restaurant (named for a luxe Pullman train), where you can tuck into a largely Anglo-French menu (moules marinière with Scottish mussels, Cornish chicken marinated in garlic) and meat dishes cooked over charcoal in a Josper oven. The restaurant's centerpiece is a nifty cylindrical wine contraption that dispenses top-notch wines by the glass, and the sleek bar serves an impressive selection of more than 200 whiskeys. There's a small fitness center with a sauna on the fifth floor.
In the Area
The revitalized King's Cross neighborhood is home to a number of top bars and restaurants. Walk behind the train station to Granary Square for the pick of the bunch; Caravan is an industrial-chic all-day dining spot in a converted grain store; Bruno Loubet's Grain Store sits just next door and serves an eclectic brasserie-style menu spanning everything from Polish pierogi to Vietnamese salads; and Shrimpy's is a hipster hangout in a former gas station that dishes up signature soft-shell crab burgers. The area is very well connected for travel to just about anywhere in London — and even Paris (the Eurostar train departs from St. Pancras Station). But there's plenty to see within walking distance: stroll to Camden and Regent's Park via a pretty canalside route, head to Islington to browse the boutiques along Upper Street, or you can walk to the British Museum in about 25 minutes.
