Well, lookie here. Another new hotel opening in London just in time for the Summer Olympics.

This time it's from the intimate collection of London (and one NYC) boutique hotels, Firmdale--Dorset Square Hotel in the city's Marylebone neighborhood.

The hotel itself has actually been around for a while but it recently got a renovation from fairy godmother (and Firmdale's owner) Kit Kemp. Kemp has integrated her signature accents of "bold colours and textures" as well as pretty-looking fabric patterns (she makes floral look not just acceptable but desirable) and original art.

The hotel, built from an old Regency-era townhouse, is very small, just 38 bedrooms, some of which look out on a private garden square (History lesson: this square was the site of Thomas Lord's first cricket ground and the hotel's hand-drawn logo is two cricket bats and a ball.) The hotel also features a guest drawing room with a fireplace and The Potting Shed bar and restaurant which will be open all day.

Rates at the hotel actually sound quite doable for London at 150 GBP for a single room and 280 GBP for a deluxe rooms. Those with a garden view will be about 15 quid more. Reservations are expected to open on the website soon but you can reserve yours by calling 020 7723 7874 or emailing: reservations@dorsetsquarehotel.co.uk. And no, do not expect there to be rooms open during the Olympics.
