There are a number of London hotels with cinemas and screening rooms. But who wants to share with anyone else when you can have your own cinema?
A select few hotels now have suites with built-in cinemas. If you want to have a screening facility all to yourself, check out these sweet cinema suites…
The Dome Penthouse at Hotel Café Royal
Paris Hilton was one of the most recent occupants of the Dome Penthouse at the Hotel Café Royal.
Just a couple of years old, the suite combines the Grade-II listed architecture of the building with cutting-edge technology. The three-bedroom suite has not just a home-cinema system, but an LED lighting and DJ sound system too.
When you’re not using the giant screen and projector to watch a movie, you can have your very own party using the Bang & Olufsen entertainment system. You can turn on the LED light show to really get the party started. And when you’re relaxing in the tub, the bathroom mirror is a TV screen too.
The Cinema Suite at Taj 51 Buckingham Gate
At Taj 51 Buckingham Gate, you can add an extra dimension to your cinema experience with a 3D television.
Their Cinema Suite has an 85-inch, high definition 3D TV, plus a surround sound system from Steinway Lyngdorf. The rest of the suite’s design is inspired by cinema from around the world.
Intended as a tribute to the history of film, this lavish suite features portraits of big names and movie posters. There’s even a special cinematic menu, with dishes named after iconic films, from Hitchcock’s The Birds to Chocolat.
The Screening Suite at W London Leicester Square
W London has a screening room for hire, but it also has a private Screening Suite for even more intimacy.
The suite combines a cinema and luxurious spa. When you’re not relaxing in the tub or the private steam room, the 3-metre wide cinema screen will keep you entertained. It features ambient ceiling lighting, Dolby surround sound and Sony 3D HD video projection. You don’t even need to move from your bed to control it all. Lower the blackout blinds to get the full effect.
If there’s anything better than a trip to the cinema, it’s not having to share the experience with anyone else, or even leave your room. Book one of these magnificent suites and you’ll have the whole cinema to yourself.
