In East London resides the alluring Town Hall Hotel, a coalescence of architectural artistry amongst an encounter of both the past and present. It rhythmically intertwines an Edwardian building with an internal composition of London-based studio Rare Architecture, conveying a rebirth within its physique of antiquity. In pursuit of persevering the integrity and essence of the building, architects Michel da Costa Gonçalves and Nathalie Rozencwajg have promised to stay true to the intricacy of design within. The features within the hotel are composed of superb plasterwork and original arched sash windows that have been reinvigorated, while the shades of green and white that line the grounds and sweeping staircases have been renewed to present raw opulence. 

Amongst the borders of Shoreditch and Whitechapel, Town Hall Hotel are filled with vintage retro furnishings, all of which hold presence in the 96 exclusively designed rooms and suites within an essence of terrazzo and oak parquet flooring, as well as inclusive of beds that are encapsulated by Egyptian cotton sheets. Within the front of the hotel stays the Feature Suites, where you can find yourself under lofty ceilings, but surrounded by a balanced symmetry of the past and the present. Alongside comfort and grandeur, the historical residency is accompanied by sites of leisure, including an exclusive pool, onsite eatery, and favored social space: the Corner Room. 

Presenting itself as an immediate allurement, the pool is embellished with the hotel’s signature Art-Deco-inspired red motif amid a beaming skylit room, while the Corner Room carries an aura of an ever-evolving culinary environment amongst shades of delicacy and ease. With a menu inclusive of satisfying dishes like Dexter beef with shaved belper knolle cheese, and barbequed English asparagus served with an egg yolk puree and puffed barley by Chef Simon Shand, this dining landmark is covered by a white metro-tiled wall that lies behind dozens of hanging industrial pendant lights, amplifying an atmosphere of warm reception. 

The marble interiors are a reminder of Town Hall Hotel’s origins, presenting an opportunity for every visitor to experience the memories of the past alongside a sensitivity for the present. Join in the celebration of artistry and life’s delights in the heart of London’s East End.
