Hotel Metropolitan in London is a new kind of a hotel, very light and pompous.The hotel is located at the Hyde Park Corner end of Park Line, overlooking Hyde Park, with walking distance of Piccadilly, Knightsbridge and the West End.
There is also a COMO Shambhala Urban Escape offering a gym, steam room, reflexology, aromatherapy, shiatsu massage and jet-lag therapies. Yoga mats are supplied in room, and teachers available on request. For a Michelin-starred culinary experience, Nobu, the hotel restaurant co-owned by Nobu Matsuhisa and Robert de Niro, offers innovative Japanese cuisine with an upbeat New York-style atmosphere. There are five event spaces accommodating groups from 10 to 80. Service, for which this hotel is known, includes a concierge who knows exactly what’s going on in town as well as room butlers.
In the guestrooms, coffee and cream colours prevail with the occasional splash of plum. Reddish, wood furnishings and those featuring were made especially for the hotel by United Designersâ€™ manufacturing facility in Ashford, Kent. Hobbs chose pieces of antique Asian furnishings to complement the look. Cushions, blinds, curtains and carpets are all crafted out of pure, natural materials. Possibly the most select room to enjoy is the penthouse that is surrounded by a discreet Japanese rock garden.
