Two UK hotels have been included in the shortlist of the best new or newly revamped business hotels in the world, complied by Wallpaper* and Fortune magazines.
The 39-bedroom Dean Street Townhouse (pictured) and 26-bedroom Shoreditch Rooms, both in London are on the 40-strong list, which will be whittled down to 10 in the December 2010 issue of Wallpaper*.
Also on the list are the Crosby Street Hotel in New York, opened last year by British group Firmdale Hotels, which is run by Tim and Kit Kemp; British hotelier Gordon Campbell Gray's Le Gray in Beirut; and Soho House Berlin, launched by the London-based Soho House Group in May.
The shortlist includes grand luxury properties, relaunches of well-established hotels, and contemporary openings in up and coming destinations.
