A 19th-century beauty meets the London of today: that’s what you’ll find at Kimpton Fitzroy London Hotel. From the outside, the landmark building, which occupies a full block along the eastern side of Russell Square in Bloomsbury, looks every bit the part of grande dame. Inside, though, contemporary interiors beckon the discerning traveller to settle in and stay a while—Negroni (or two) in hand.
This landmark building, whose ornate terracotta facade is marked by four British queens guarding the entrance, has always been a proper home for glamour. The building was originally designed in 1898, and today you’ll feel that history the second you step into Kimpton Fitzroy London’s lobby and gaze around—from the marble as far as the eye can see to the original Zodiac mosaic at your feet. Throughout the property—from the 334 guest rooms to the four dining and drinking establishments—original details mingle well with refurbished touches. The fresh, comfortable interior design (by Tara Bernerd & Partners and Russell Sage Studio) tips a hat to the building’s past without neglecting its present.
With 334 guest rooms ranging from 172-square-foot City Singles to a 915-square-foot suite—a luxurious option overlooking Russell Square—Kimpton Fitzroy London has accommodations for every fancy, family setup, and group size. Whichever you choose, you’re in for custom beds, 300-thread-count linens, and warm decor that seamlessly blends heritage elements with 21st-century appointments.
