Dorset Square Hotel

It is no secret that I love London. It is absolutely, positively one of my favorite cities on Earth, and is also home to my favorite hotel chain (again, on Earth), the Firmdale Properties. They have just announced another reason for me to go back to London.


The Dorset Square Hotel opens this June (2012) in what just might be my favorite neighborhood (maybe not on Earth, but for sure in London), Marylebone. 

From the website:

Dorset Square Hotel has undergone an extensive refurbishment stamping it with Kit Kemp's signature style: bold colours and textures, bespoke and one-off pieces as well as original art collected from around the world. This beautiful Regency townhouse has 38 individually designed bedrooms many of which look onto the leafy private garden square which was originally the site of Thomas Lord's first cricket ground. There is a sumptuous guest drawing room with a fireplace and The Potting Shed bar & restaurant which is open all day long. The hotel is situated in Marylebone, one of London's most urbane and exciting residential areas. It is within easy reach of London's theatre-land and financial district and surrounded by fashionable shops, caf├ęs, restaurants and world-class galleries.

Since I have just returned from the UK and Ireland, I cannot justify another trip there just yet. I am just going to print out hundreds of photos of the hotel and wallpaper my bedroom with them in an attempt to recreate the effect.
