We love it because... It's another luxurious outpost from the Firmdale Hotels chain, which already includes the divine Charlotte Street Hotel, Soho Hotel and Covent Garden Hotel. The bar is beautiful, and the restaurant is chic yet comfortable - choose from cosy booths or even comfier sofas looking out over the courtyard.
Top tip... The restaurant is fairly relaxed and we felt comfortable breastfeeding, given we had a sofa table around the edge of the restaurant. If you're after something even more informal, or want lighter bites such as small plates or sliders, the hotel bar is your best bet. Unfortunately, the bar area can't be booked, but it's vast and there was plenty of room when we dropped in on a Thursday lunchtime.
We spotted... A real life A-lister (Tobey Maguire), a tempting pop-up ice-cream stall outside in the yard, and the most pristine baby change facilities we've ever seen!
