A new boutique hotel, owned by the Experimental Group, is set to open on Henrietta Street in Covent Garden in April. The Henrietta Hotel will have 18 bedrooms and a restaurant run by Michelin-starred chef Ollie Dabbous.
The hotel rooms, designed by Dorothée Meilichzon, will each have an individual look and style and will include features such as hand-painted wallpaper, marble skirting, brass lampshades, and handmade headboards. The bathroom sinks are inspired by the roof shapes of the different buildings on Henrietta Street and will be made from two pieces of granite at a 90° angle.
The restaurant at the Henrietta is intended to be a tribute to the original Covent Garden when it was part of Westminster Abbey and will serve a simple, seasonal menu based on traditional French cuisine. The design of the restaurant will include terracotta tiles, oak flooring, a hand-painted tiger mural and a glass roof.
This will be the first London-based hotel for the Experimental Group, who also own the Grand Pigale hotel and Grand Boulevard Hotel in Paris, alongside London Bars, Compagnie Des Vins Surnaturels Seven Dials, Experimental Cocktail Club Chinatown, and Joyeux Bordel.
The Henrietta Hotel will open in April 2017 on 14-15 Henrietta Street, Covent Garden, WC2E 8QH
