Our hotel radar has picked up another property opening in London this spring: the Eccleston Square Hotel. And this 39-room Pimlico pad already has technophiles drooling. Here’s how Design Hotels describes it:
After a £6.5m renovation, this Georgian town house has emerged as an ultra-high-tech urban cocoon, where guests are comforted and soothed by luxurious products and swathes of futuristic gadgets. In all 39 rooms there are blue tooth iPod connections, VoIP phones and programmable ‘wake up and sleep’ experience that takes control of the curtains, heating and lighting. The 46-inch 3D TVs with 3D Blu-Ray players... are standard in all rooms.
Besides the cutting-edge guests, guests will also be privy to the Hästens bed experience. Straight from Sweden, these hand-crafted beds are reputed to be the finest in the world, complete with a massage function. (Price tag? £12,000 a pop.)
This cutting-edge boutique hotel will open its doors in May 2011.
