ME London Is Now Truly, Officially, Open
March 1, 2013 at 9:48 AM
We’ve kept you up to date on ME London on its long journey from when we first heard about it, through fires, delays, its Aura Managers, and the view from the roof, all the way to the much-delayed soft launch.
Today, March 1, is a brand new day however as ME London really, truly, opens its doors. Check out that lobby above, stepping into which, given the pitch black corridors (below), we likened to floating out into space, especially with the galaxy-like video projections on the angular walls at the time.
Rooms balance out all that moody black, with virtually all-white décor, and some come with terraces overlooking the river Thames. Rates this Saturday range from £340 ($515) for an Aura room to £3,180 ($4,822) for the two-story, glass-cupola Suite ME. A branch of steakhouse STK, as well as Italian eatery Cucina Asellina, are on the ground floor, with Radio rooftop crowning the hotel.
Next up for ME? Vienna! That's scheduled for October.
