Our favourite rooms
The two deluxe rooms on the second floor (Rooms Eight and Nine) overlook Regent’s Park’s leafy green stretch. The suite feels like a private loft apartment, with its own separate entrance accessed from a short staircase outside. Inside, it’s decked out in neutral hues, with an art deco desk carved from syrup-brown wood, heavy pieces of antique furniture, soft silk wallpaper and a vivid red rug.
Some vintage threads to match the antiques; a picnic hamper for sunny days in Regent’s Park.
The bar and ground-floor restaurant are wheelchair-accessible, as is one of the superior rooms (Room Seven).
Little Smiths are more than welcome – the hotel provides crayons and colouring paper to keep them busy. The restaurant has a menu tailored to tots.
