Haymarket Hotel

Eclectic London boutique hotel with interior design by Kit Kemp

Hot on the heels of London’s Soho Hotel, Tim and Kit Kemp’s next project is the Haymarket Hotel. This, their seventh London property fuses contemporary and classical references in an ultra-central London location. It’s a landmark building designed by the legendary John Nash, the master architect who developed most of Regency London, including nearby Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, and the adjacent Haymarket Theatre Royal. The hotel comprises 50 individually designed bedrooms and suites, an exclusive four level townhouse, Brumus Bar and Restaurant (serving northern Italian cuisine), conservatory and drawing room. There are several private event spaces as well as a fully equipped gym, beauty treatment room and a spectacular 18 metre pool with a bar, lounge, music and lighting system. The Shooting Gallery on the ground floor has retained its original architectural features and will provide an exquisite private dining room seating 40. Interiors by Kit Kemp (Firmdale Hotels owner and Design Director) are a remarkable combination that honours the building’s noble lineage whilst updating it with a contemporary English point of view. The lobby is a clean airy space featuring a large stainless steel sculpture by Tony Cragg and paintings by John Virtue, while the downstairs pool features a spectacular lighting scheme that uses strong contrasts of light and shadow. Grey oak dominates the lobby, drawing room and conservatory, and handpicked antiques and original art help jumble past and present. Guestrooms are individually furnished and avoid the “designer formula” look with custom-made pieces and great emphasis on rich texture and colour. From the shagreen coffee tables to ivory wood-toned pieces, they evoke contrast and comfort at every level.
