London Dorset Square hotel

Design Hotels will open its new London Dorset Square property on 18 June.  The 38-room hotel, once an elegant townhouse, is situated in the leafy square of the same name, just off Marylebone Road, and close by Marylebone Station (for Wembley, the Cotswolds and Birmingham) and Baker Street on the Underground (Jubilee and Bakerloo lines).

The new Design Hotels' property signifies an emotional homecoming for Tim and Kit Kemp, the husband and wife team behind Firmdale Hotels.  It was originally purchased by the couple in 1985, marking their first venture into the boutique hotel market, but was later sold to allow for other projects.  The Kemps have recently reacquired Dorset Square Hotel, which has undergone extensive refurbishment.  The original country house style has been replaced by Kit's signature design stamp: bold colours, contrasting fabrics, and one-off art pieces and furnishings.  The self-taught designer believes that “hotels should be living things, not stuffy institutions”.

Many of the guestrooms look out onto the tranquil private gardens of Dorset Square, the original site of Thomas Lord’s cricket ground.  Each room features a striking marble and oak bathroom with freestanding showers.  Rates from £140 per room per night, excluding VAT. www.designhotels.com
