Hoxton Hotel, London
A luxury budget hotel – the UK’s best
The stated design objective by the client, Sinclair Beecham, co-founder of Pret A Manger, for the Hoxton Hotel was to create a world class, world beating product offering an exciting, new hotel that was better designed, smarter and more forward-looking that its competition and that should be – modern but classic – futuristic but familiar – new but not trendy – clever but not intimidating – fun but not kitsch. The Hoxton Hotel successfully achieved these objectives being voted ‘best UK hotel’ in the 2009 Guardian / Observer Travel Awards. In the words of Sinclair Beecham,
we describe the hotel as luxury budget – luxury where it matters and budget where it counts.
The Hoxton has also received a considerable amount of favourable press attention –
the bedroom design … cleverly maximises the limited floorspace… lives up to its promise of being the first upmarket, low cost, high quality, no fuss, value for money hotel in London
the décor is nothing if not eye-catching… the blend of modern and traditional works beautifully
