This spring Brown’s Hotel in London unveiled a striking transformation of the Kipling Suite, the hotel’s largest after it was combined with the Albemarle Suite. The suite was inspired by author Rudyard Kipling, because it’s believed that he wrote The Jungle Book while staying at Brown’s. Designed by Rocco Forte Director of Design Olga Polizzi, the four-bedroom suite is decorated with hand-picked objets d’art, fabrics, artwork, and custom furniture. (There is striking green wallpaper by Lewis & Wood, but there’s nothing too “over-the-top” in terms of the jungle theme.) The suite comes with enormous his and her walk-in closets and a luxurious marble bathroom stocked with organic Spiezia candles, a deep soaking tub and bath oil.
Guests of the Kipling Suite are privy to extra perks including spa treatments, transfers from the airport or train station, a bottle of Ruinart Champagne, and a choice of either a cocktail class, a personal shopping experience at Paul Smith, or a private appointment at Peter Harrington Rare Books.
To quote Claire Wrathall from The Telegraph: “The Apartment at the Connaught aside, I don’t know that there’s a suite in London I like better.”
