Architecture

VICTORIAN TOWNHOUSE WITH AN EXOTIC HEART

Nearly 40 years after its opening, Blakes is still seen as a source of inspiration for hoteliers around the globe. Central to the hotel’s lasting appeal is its elegant, black façade, which hides an opulent interiors (and famous guests) from public view. At Blakes, Hempel’s central concept focuses on providing well-traveled connoisseurs with three key elements: lavish design, swift service, and complete privacy. The thick period walls and lavish furnishings act as a physical cocoon, sheltering guests from unwanted disturbances, but it’s even peaceful out in the shared courtyard, where cocktails are sipped among an explosion of lush green plants.

Time periods and cultures collide to create an atmosphere at once familiar and unlike any place you’ve ever been before. The airy, elegant Provence Style room is a tranquil haven in soft grey tones with abundant natural light. Dominating this sensual space is a French gilded Swan bed.

AN ECLECTIC MIX OF COLOR AND CULTURE

Each of the 45 refurbished guest rooms at Blakes takes inspiration from a different far-off land. Anouska Hempel weaves a seductive blend with rich Eastern tones and textures that come together in a blaze of warmth, and there are intriguing artifacts from her travels in Indochina, Africa and the Middle East.
