One Aldwych is unique in the sense that it is a contemporary luxury hotel within a celebrated classic building of 1907 vintage. It opened in 1998 and created a distinct space for itself. Over the years it has added features that have helped it maintain its exclusivity and uniqueness. This year the new feature launched is the private guest lounge offering supreme comfort to its guests. The new lounge which has been named Lounge At One has been designed by Fox Linton Associates. It is spread over 1,500 square feet and features a warm palette of clarets, taupes and purples.
Guests Can Order Light Dishes, Cocktail and Wines
The lounge is not merely a resting place but is backed by unpretentious service through the day. Guests can order from the dynamic menu that is often changed, light dishes for breakfast, daytime and evening meals, along with cocktails, wine and hot beverages. Hosts are in attendance at the lounge to serve the individual needs of the guests including helping the guests check in for flights online or coordinating with the Aldwych Concierge staff for theater and restaurant bookings. The ambience of the lounge is very soothing and relaxing. The armchairs and sofas are very cozy and ideal for initiating conversations even with strangers. The lounge features a central media area with a selection of iPads, magazines and news papers. There is a quite zone also in case you are not in the mood to mingle but want to relax quietly.
One Aldwych Lounge Features Several Contemporary Abstract Art Work
The lounge is accessible to all the overnight guests in the hotel. Local guests are not allowed in the lounge but can enjoy the services of the buzzing Lobby Bar which is located nearby. The lounge boasts of several contemporary abstract art work which are inspired by the building’s 1907 heritage. These artworks were specially commissioned for the lounge and include a papier maché goose made entirely from pages of Le Monde by Aude Goalec and Nicole Jacobs.
