Radisson Bloomsbury Unveils New 'First Class' Seventh Floor
We often complained that hotels have been acting a lot like airlines with their ridiculous fees but this time, we're actually approving of a hotel taking a page from the airline's playbook.
That's because the Radisson Edwardian Bloomsbury Street Hotel in London has unveiled some "First Class" lodgings on their seventh floor. Think of these upper echelon rooms as sort of a mix between first class seating and airport lounge access, but you know, in a hotel kind of way.
Only those who hold a Seventh Floor key card can access the floor's 11 rooms--five studio suites and six king deluxe rooms. These rooms are tricked out with better amenities than the rest of the hotel rooms, like espresso machines, clothes steamers, boutique bathroom gift set, complimentary movies and music, free WiFi and even drinks from the minibar.
Guests in the studio suites will also have more amenities at their disposal such as fresh orchids in-room, complimentary laundry service of one item per day and an umbrella. Plus, everyone on the Seventh Floor gets a 2pm late checkout.
Rates for the Seventh Floor start at around £225 for a deluxe king room and £245 for one of the studio suites. If you can't fly first class to London, at least you can sleep in first class when you get there.
