London Victoria/Pimlico 5-star boutique hotel to open

June will see the re-opening of the Eccleston Square Hotel in London’s trendy Pimlico district, less then 10 minutes’ walk from Victoria Station and Buckingham Palace.  The 5-star 39-room boutique property is actually in the square, which has tennis courts in the gated gardens.

Originally a Georgian townhouse the property has been transformed with a £6.5m makeover.  The guestrooms are split across five categories and have either garden or city views, some with private courtyards or balconies.  All rooms feature advanced state-of-the-art interiors, including 46-inch 3D LED TVs with HD Movie and 3D channels, 3D Blu Ray DVD players with 3D glasses, and finger-tip control panels.  The pads control every possible function in the room, from the lighting and curtains to wake-up and bedtime settings.  Each room will also have an iPad2 – the newest Apple creation – which guests can use for anything from shopping guides to spa bookings.  Adjustable massage beds from Swedish firm Hästens act as the focus of each room, complete with massage programmes that synchronize with the Hästens Mind Spa TV.

Marble bathrooms feature ‘smart glass’ walls which turn opaque at the touch of a button, as well as a TV incorporated into a heated, steam-proof mirror. The wet rooms also feature rainfall showers, high-pressure massage heads and aromatherapy products from L’Occitane. www.ecclestonsquarehotel.com
