The New Kid On The Block

I recently had the opportunity to experience The Belgraves, part of Thompson Hotels, which opened in February this year. Thompson Hotels, represented by JG Collection has a collection of lifestyle properties in North America including luxury boutique hotels in New York, LA, Chicago, Toronto, Miami Beach and more recently in London, The Belgraves.
Located in the leafy residential area of Belgravia, (the clue’s in the name!) The Belgraves offers peace and quiet in close proximity to the hustle and bustle of Sloane Street and Knightsbridge. The property has a very stylish yet homely feel to it, a mix of contemporary with quirky retro touches, very cool and very British. This is hardly surprising given that British designer Tara Bernerd designed and created the interior throughout, including the stylish Restaurant which has specially commissioned artwork from British artists including Mat Collishaw.
Mark’s bar is a must for pre-dinner or after dinner drinks or just drinks generally! The Library style bar is intimate, cosy and has a welcoming feel. The property has several unique areas that can be used for corporate or social events including Room 100 which is perfect for high end board meetings, private lunches or dinners in a relaxed setting (maximum 20 people). There is also a roof top terrace which is a great space for private dinners or drinks.
The 85 bedrooms are again stylishly designed, with Ren products and proper hairdryers, always a big plus for me!
So definitely one to consider for smaller high end groups or socially for drinks and dinner if you’re planning on being in Knightsbridge or Sloane Street shopping.
