…with The Hoxton Hotel…
It is heaving, what a buzz, what a place! It has it all. Large lounge areas filled with comfy lounges, an edgy restaurant, meeting rooms, and all were a buzz with activity. Such an up vibe. It was rocking, and let me tell you, there were a LOT of people there! Every room was a party and this was just part of it. Unique spaces roll into each other, I don't even know how to describe it…contemporary, industrial meets eclectic?
They opened in 2006, they were labelled the "no bullshit hotel" because they took away everything that pissed people off in traditional hotels; the expensive mini bars, phone calls and internet. They started their "no rip off" policy. They provide a place for people to EAT, DRINK, WORK and PLAY, and from what I saw each of these things are very much in play and thriving. They curate an events programme inspired by the local area, that showcases the city they are very much a part of. They provide a platform for guests to hang alongside the locals.
In a matter of days their second hotel will open in Holborn, and I have absolutely no doubt that it will be a killer too!
