Rosewood London embraces guests within one of London’s most historic locales. The central location, moments from Covent Garden, near an eclectic arcade of ultra-luxury boutiques on Lamb';s Conduit Street, the British Museum, Theatreland and the Royal Opera House.
Greeted by doormen in tweed caps enter through wrought iron gates, into the peaceful courtyard giving a sense of arrival more akin to a private manor house than a hotel.
Housed in a 1914 Edwardian Belle Époque building, Rosewood London is steeped in history. Its 262 guestrooms and 44 generously appointed suites, created by renowned New York-based Tony Chi and Associates, are inspired by a traditional British manor house and evoke that of a true London residence.

A veritable jewel box of a dining room, with mirrors on the walls and ceiling, tables are laid with Limoges china, sparkling crystal and refined silverware * Holborn Dining, serving seasonal, locally sourced British cuisine with a twist in a vibrantly bustling dining salon. Combining reclaimed oak with antique mirrors and red leather banquettes with tweed detailing * Holborn Delicatessen, centred on local Best of British products, pop in for a take-away home-made pastries, healthy juices, or peruse the British cured meats, Italian olive oils, and other delicacies that line the walls. * Scarfes Bar, evokes a convivial atmosphere with a roaring fire, bookcases filled with 1,000 antique books, low-key lighting and velvet armchairs whilst live music ensures the bar becomes the rhythmical soul
Young guests at Rosewood London are treated with the same respect and attention to detail as adult guests, from the personalised welcome letter received at check-in to the unique experiences, services and amenities designed especially for them.
