Scale of 90-100
Theatrical, slightly louche 39-room hotel in the former London headquarters of the Baptist church. Well-preserved period details lend patina to an otherwise contemporary, glamorous décor by Jacques Garcia. Our sumptuous Junior Suite came embellished with illuminated crystal birds, wall coverings embroidered with butterflies, a $15,000 eiderdown duvet and a red marble bath in the building’s belfry. Highly attentive, intuitive service is attitude-free. Glittering Café l’Oscar, popular with locals, offers excellent breakfasts, classic cocktails and casual meals; and in a circular gallery under the cupola, The Baptist restaurant serves more formal dinners. The plush lounge below has a menu of creative cocktails. Not for traditionalists, but an ideal choice for guests who enjoy hotels with dramatic flair as well as a high level of comfort.
