In a recent tweet, Joe Zee (@mrjoezee) answered the question of his choice Londontown sleep by declaring The Covent Garden Hotel tops in his book. This is perhaps the highest compliment for a hotel, to be recommended by a man who not only travels to the most glamorous world capitals constantly, but who has a job that requires him to live for fashion and style, and to influence trends via a top international magazine. We hope the Covent Garden puts nice floral arrangements in his room for such an endorsement.
Funnily enough, The Covent Garden is a sister hotel of the just-opened Crosby Street Hotel, the first hotel outside of London for the Firmdale Hotels chain. While it hasn't been open long enough for Zee to have been inside the place, since he's still in Paris for the runway shows, we're wagering that he'll love the NY version just as much.
