The London NYC is smart and inviting. Designer David Collins has a background in residential spaces, and brought a sensibility of warmth to The London NYC that is often not found in hotels. The use of varied textures, from soft gray suede to sharp leather, along with delicate lighting and a lovely use of mirrors creates pleasurable spaces from the intimate lobby to the generously sized rooms. Gentle wallpaper patterns and a mixed use of wood floors and carpets — just like a sophisticated townhouse — deliver a modern, residential feel that makes guests feel right at home. Without allegiance to a masculine or feminine design style, this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel appeals to all. Expect touches inspired by the name of the hotel, including an artistic map of London’s Hyde Park, which hangs behind the front desk in the lobby.
