London boutique’s new redesign is a hit with the A-listers


St Martins Lane hotel in London has unveiled its new look after upgrading its bedrooms and public areas and introducing a new late-night cocktail lounge that has proved popular with the celebrity crowd.

The 204-bedroom boutique hotel, part of Morgans Hotel Group, has undergone a complete redesign and now has the addition of Blind Spot, a cocktail bar designed by Tim Andreas, from Banjo.

The 15-year-old property in Covent Garden has given all its 204 bedrooms a technological makeover with a new interactive mood lighting system, mirrored mini bar and a media hub of HD video and music playing facilities.

The restaurant’s décor has also been upgraded to “evoke the senses” of the Cuban capital Havana.

“St Martins Lane set the standard for what an urban resort should be as soon as it opened its doors 15 years ago,” said Jason Kalisman, interim CEO of Morgans Hotel Group.

“From its inception, St Martins Lane was utterly original, and we are confident that this re-launch will preserve and expand on the hotel’s legacy and define what British luxury is for the next generation to come.”
