About Hotel Russell London
The magnificent Hotel Russell London is set in the prestigious Bloomsbury district of London and was built at the end of the 19th century. It is a terracotta grade II listed building which displays Victorian Renaissance architecture and rises eight storeys into the London skyline.
The Hotel Russell is another of the Principal Hayley hotels to recently undergo a £20 million overhaul but certainly retains the impressive exterior it began with when it first opened its doors back in 1900. Just over the road from the hotel is Russell Square which offers the chance to take a break in a peaceful environment away from the busy streets of the capital. It is set on the east side of the square and boasts a great example of some late Victorian Renaissance Revival architecture which basically means it is a sight not to be missed.
Due to its convenient location The Hotel Russell London is not only close to the Russell Square tube station and other train stations but also a number of sights and attractions around the city. For example, Covent Garden is a short distance away, while also within close proximity are the likes of the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and Leicester Square.
As already mentioned the Hotel Russell London is not only a sight to behold, its facilities and furnishings are also extensive and well-designed as well. This is true no more so than in the array of 18 meeting and event rooms which make it among the top conference venues in the capital. Theatre, boardroom, cabaret, banqueting; all settings are possible for conferences at the hotel for anywhere up to 450 guests.
The Hotel Russell’s facilities are also available and suitable for weddings or private dining thanks to its picturesque nature and its top class service. Proving the colossal size of the building, there are 373 guest rooms which feature a variety of amenities to ensure needs are met as they arise. There are standard rooms, ambassador rooms, contemporary deluxe rooms and contemporary suites, all offering differing levels of luxury and class.
As with the Palace in Manchester and the George Hotel in Edinburgh, the Hotel Russell has a new Tempus Bar thanks to its recent refurbishment. The main restaurant comes in the form of Fitzroy Doll’s which is named after the building’s architect and offers a choice of dishes for the evening meal. The bar, meanwhile, serves all sorts of drinks and is the ideal place to relax into the evening. As an alternative, guests can utilise the 24-hour room service which is another option.
