Why book with us?
Covent Garden Hotel holds its own among the stars of London’s acclaimed theater district. Guests pass through grand curtains festooned with English roses before entering a world of aged wood, dignified architecture, and head-turning interiors by designer Kit Kemp. Her signature mix of luscious upholstery patterns, demi-canopies, decorative headboards, flowing drapes, and matching wallpaper envelops visitors in British charm. Guests in search of an intimate retreat can withdraw offstage into Tiffany’s Library, with its radiant fireplace and honor bar. The gym, beauty spa, two private dining rooms, and private screening room provide state-of-the-art amenities, while the pewter-paned mirror, cozy banquettes, and tucked-away corners of Brasserie Max gain widespread applause as a pre- or post-theater retreat.
An Intimate Retreat
Located on the cobbled Monmouth Street, the building dates back to the 1890's when it operated as a French hospital. The structure lay neglected for years until 1996 when hoteliers Tim and Kit Kemp—whose flair for interior design is world-renowned—transformed the property into one of London's most charming getaways. Surrounded by nearly 21 theaters, the building takes on the character of a stage set. Yet architectural details like a sweeping stone staircase usher guests into sumptuous soundproofed rooms that cocoon them from the hustle and bustle of nearby boutiques, restaurants, cafés, and bars. Once again, the Kemps have created a discreet, tucked-away atmosphere in the heart of London.
A quintessentially quirky fusion of traditional English design and contemporary accents prevail at Covent Garden Hotel. Yet it’s the personal touch of designer and art collector Kit Kemp that gives the hotel its special charm. Selections from her own art collection and carefully curated antique furnishings feature throughout the 19th century property, along with dignified granite and mahogany detailing.
Rooms & Suites
Each of the 58 bedrooms and suites at charming Covent Garden Hotel in central London has a rather quaint English charm. The Junior Loft Suite, for example, features a gorgeous canopy above the bed and a valance above the round, cozy window-side seating. The Covent Garden Loft Suite is spread out over two floors with a spacious drawing room, dining area, and bathroom on the lower level. A dramatic Mooi-style chandelier and candelabra give the suit the necessary aplomb. A king bedroom, dressing area, and another bathroom is situated on the upper level. Guests also have the option to connect to the adjacent King Room. The Terrace Suite, on the hotel’s top (fourth) floor, has a charming furnished terrace affording one excellent views of London rooftops.
MADE BY ORIGINALS
Together with her partner Tim Kemp, award-winning designer Kit Kemp stands at the helm of nine hotels. This quirky design guru’s aesthetic reflects a fresh, modern take on English style. Mixing eras with state-of-the-art technology, the self-taught designer follows no rules but her own, creating a signature style that strikes the perfect balance between classicism and modernity. Kemp’s pioneering work earned her the Andrew Martin International Interior Designer of the Year in 2008, and her hotel group Firmdale Hotels received the Queens Award for Enterprise in 2000, 2006 and in 2009.
