When you’re thinking about spending a night in London, chances are you don’t want it to be in a hospital bed. But you might change your mind if the Hospital Club has anything to say about it.
Okay, so it may not have been a hospital since the early 1990s, but the Hospital Club does aim to help rejuvenate the body and mind of all who stay there. The club in Covent Garden was created almost 20 years ago, by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen and former Eurythmic David Stewart, as a ‘creative hub’ to support writers, musicians, filmmakers and other creatives.
Exclusively a private members’ club until now, The Hospital Club will start to offer hotel accommodation from January 2015.
Situated at 24 Endell Street, the club is launching 15 guest rooms for non-members. Of course, this being a creative place, the rooms aren’t just simply carbon copies of each other or of those elsewhere.
Instead, each one is ‘curated’ by an artist who is given the chance to showcase their work in any way they see fit. It’s an intriguing concept, and one which is sure to prove a hit with anyone looking for a unique boutique-style hotel stay.
Rooms are available in small, medium and large, and come equipped with rainforest showers, luxurious furnishings and décor, and radios. Suites are also available for those who require more space.
The club’s new hotel rooms continue the growing trend towards low-key offerings which are nonetheless unique and highly creative.
