Boutique hotel chain Malmaison is set to re-launch its London property in November, following a major refurbishment.
The 97-room Farringdon site promises a taste of New York, with a new "urban room design concept", new lounge bar and a new restaurant.
The rooms have been redesigned, featuring stripped wooden floorboards, feature wallpapers such as exposed brick and concrete, bespoke furniture, and Malmaison amenities from cosmetics brand Anatomicals. The rooms also feature smart screen TVs and innovative mini bars including treats from north London chocolatiers, the Grown Up Chocolate Company.
Street artist Xenz, in partnership with Lazarides gallery, has created murals throughout the hotel. Taking inspiration from the leafy hotel surroundings, the lift lobby and each floor landing is filled with gold and iridescent branches and leaves inspired by Asian art styles.
The hotel's basement restaurant, Strip Bar & Steak, will specialise in New York Strip using a selection of USDA Black Angus Prime grade beef in cuts of 250g up to 550g. The interiors will combine urban style with a "touch of Las Vegas", featuring exposed brick walls, dark wooden tables and floors and leather seating. Guests will be led into the restaurant by neon lights and daily specials will be advertised on a model of the classic Nevada Stardust Casino sign.
Upstairs on the ground floor, the new lounge bar will offer all-day dining and a more relaxed drinking area.
Rates will start at £200 per room per night.
