Ceilings are four meters (13+ feet) high, and there is a balcony behind the French windows you see in the pictures. The sofa and glass table are a pretty modern contrast to the wall paneling and classic chairs. WiFi is as it should be – free – and the usual wizzy things like Bose docking stations, LCD TVs, and Nespresso machines are there.
TVs are also found in the bathrooms above the separate soaker tubs, and your toes will appreciate the heated floors on cold winter nights.
The Town House Suite (which curiously enough is also referred to as the Knightsbridge and the Kensington Suite on the hotel’s website) runs at about £1,680 ($2,800) a night. The money poured into the creation of this suite is the start of additional investment in the group’s properties, which include a few hotels in London, Bristol, Dublin and Cork in Ireland, and idiosyncratically, the Dupont Circle Hotel in Washington DC.
