Hotel St Martins Lane is a dramatic and daring reinvention of the urban resort. Entered through improbably tall, luminescent yellow-glass revolving doors—the tallest in London —St Martins Lane’s lobby is a soaring and theatrical space that offers a provocative manipulation with oversized columns and angled niches painted a deep fluorescent yellow, complemented by Portuguese limestone floors.
The hotels features meeting room hire, arrival fruit juices, yoghurt and granola shots, working lunch, afternoon fruit teas, fruit skewers and mineral water.
Most of the light-saturated bedrooms offer floor-to-ceiling windows and impressive views; a few suites even flaunt lush private gardens fragranted by orange trees. The Covent Garden hotel offers surprisingly good packages on their website, especially considering its list of amenities which includes a full gym and two restaurants. And though it caters to the more average Joe these days, even we have to admit: the Light Bar is still pretty damn cool.
At Martins Lane also features an Executive Boardroom with 24-hour multilingual secretarial staff available upon request, additional multi-use meeting spaces, and state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment. Plasma monitors for audio-visual playback, smart boards, electronic flip charts, portable computers, mobile phones and fax machines are also available upon request.
