Located in one of London’s most historic locales on High Holborn, where the City meets the West End, the hotel is a unique retreat in the heart of London. Shopping areas and tourist attractions such as Covent Garden, the Royal Opera House, museums and galleries are all just a short walk away.
An extensive renovation has sensitively transformed the 1914 Edwardian Belle Epoque building, including the original Grade II-listed street frontage and dome and the grand Pavonazzo marble staircase which rises up through all seven storeys of the hotel beneath the 166-foot cupola. Guests enter via a grand carriageway into the distinctive courtyard giving a sense of arrival more akin to a private manor house than a hotel.
The guiding philosophy of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, one of the world’s most respected ultra-luxury hotel groups, is A Sense of Place®, in which each property reflects its location’s history, culture and sensibilities. Rosewood London is a perfect illustration of this concept: the 262 guestrooms and 44 suites convey the feel of stylish London residences, public areas are filled with artwork and books, and restaurants offer both classic and contemporary British dishes, while the event spaces nod to the building’s past as the Pearl Assurance Company’s headquarters.
The suites offer some of London’s finest accommodation. The Grand Manor House Wing is accessed via a private elevator and its own street entrance, and it is the only hotel suite in the world to have its own postcode.
