The Firmdale Group’s Charlotte Street Hotel, housed in a converted townhouse, is a hidden respite in the heart of media-centric Soho. Just a short walk to the Theatre District, the hotel is situated on bustling Charlotte Street and is the perfect home base to discover central London. Designer Kit Kemp's elegant, country-house style and offbeat embellishments wash over the common areas and 52 rooms. In the lobby, splashes of bright colors and canine sculptures offset contemporary furniture; the drawing room has plush green-and-grey sofas and works by legendary Bloomsbury Group artists like Roger Fry and Vanessa Bell on the walls, and serves a proper afternoon tea. The spacious, individually styled rooms are low-key, with custom fabric headboards, floral-print wallpaper, and stark marble bathrooms. The Oscar Bar & Restaurant, with a massive mural of everyday life scenes in London and a modern British menu, is a favorite of city's creative set. You might even see them slip off to the 75-seat private cinema after supper to take in a Hollywood classic—with champagne service, of course.
