Plugged-in, stylish, and sexy: That’s the City crowd this hotel goes for, and you’ll feel that way, too. Rooms are much larger than the London usual, every inch was run through the design filter (those push-button blackout blinds!), and much of the art was commissioned by celebrated contemporary artists. Rooms, charcoal-grey with wool carpets, are large (especially the showers) and hushed, and you’ll find plenty of outlets, AV connections, and a huge bed you can flop around in. The two restaurants and several bars lure lively professionals who work in the area. On Sundays, there’s no food to be found for blocks, but the scenes of Old Street and Shoreditch are 10-min. walks away.
