Rosewood London, housed in the original headquarters of the Pearl Assurance Company, will offer 262 guestrooms and 44 suites. The accommodations will convey the feel of a stylish London residence, created by renowned, New York-based Tony Chi and Associates, which has also overseen the design of public areas and event spaces. A rich composition of materials, including lacquer, textured wood veneers and prismatic mirrors, will lend understated glamour to the interiors. Original features of the Edwardian Belle Epoque building, such as the original carriageway entrance to the arrival courtyard and the grand Pavonazzo marble staircase rising over seven storeys within the property, will be retained.

Thoughtful Staff, Great Location

I requested online a room for two adults and a child. This was the third hotel that I was staying at on my journey from Jakarta to Trinidad. Unlike the other hotels this was the first hotel that made special accommodation for a child, in terms of bed, bath rope, even a teddy bear :-). Staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely return in the future.
