St Martins Lane Hotel London unveils new look
Celebrating 15 years, St Martins Lane, London’s first boutique hotel and Morgans Hotel Group Co.‘s first European hotel, has revealed a fresh new contemporary design and updated public spaces to mark the milestone anniversary.
With renewed emphasis on comfort and simplicity across its 204 guestrooms, St Martins Lane’s recently completed renovation also includes a revitalization of its acclaimed in-house restaurant, Asia de Cuba, with a tantalizing new menu under Cuban-born executive chef Luis Pous, as well as the launch of London’s newest late night cocktail lounge, Blind Spot.
Situated in London’s theatre district at the heart of Covent Garden, Blind Spot is an intimate urban escape that has been beautifully conceived by renowned interior designer Tim Andreas of Banjo Ad Inc. Andreas has paid homage to Philippe Starck, St Martins Lane’s original designer, and his original ethos by blurring the lines between baroque and minimalist, extravagance and simplicity.
Contrasting with the vibrant scene downstairs, the guestrooms at St Martins Lane epitomise high-concept design while enhancing experience through comfort and functionality. With an experiential approach to minimalism, Tim Andreas uses expansive floor-to-ceiling windows as a unique backdrop to low and simple furnishings, heightening the impression of floating above the city. Linen drapery, polished aluminum, teardrop lighting fixtures and pale leopard print carpets soften the space, while the updated interactive light feature allows guests to elevate their mood by selecting from a spectrum of colors with a custom-designed dial.
