London's Zetter Hotel Is Heading West to Marylebone
East and West London may feel like worlds apart to some, but that isn’t stopping these hotels from embracing both: we’ve told you the Hoxton is expanding into Holborn, and now the Zetter & Zetter Townhouse are set to bridge their original haunt of Clerkenwell and tony Marylebone.
The Zetter Seymour, on the street of the same name just north of Marble Arch, should open in September with just 24 bedrooms in a double-wide Georgian townhouse. Mostly obscured by scaffolding, the exterior of number 26 (on the right) should give you an idea of what it will look like, with a total of six windows across.
While the Zetter Townhouse was created around fictional host "eccentric great aunt Wilhelmina", Marylebone will be the realm of "wicked uncle Seymour". What exactly that means is still kept under wraps, but there will be a large rooftop suite and a cocktail bar downstairs.
Marble Arch, Oxford Street, and Edgware Road can be pretty manic, but Seymour Street is thankfully much quieter, with leafy Portman and Montagu Square nearby. The back of the hotel (above) overlooks the even more silent Quebec Mews.
We don’t know anything about rates yet, but we hope dearly that wicked uncle Seymour will let us stay the night from £125-£150 ($210-$250)? If the Zetter’s friendly prices can make the transition from east to west, we’re in.
