Who doesn’t like hotel life?
The robes, mini bar, (usually) wonderfully comfortable bed, breakfast in your robe on your wonderfully comfortable bed, a midnight bubble bath, room service (Champagne); the list of perks is truly endless and I for one am not afraid to admit I stay in hotels within my home city, just because I love the experience.
Next up on my list is the wonderful Andaz, located in the brilliantly vibrant area of Liverpool Street.
It’s a traditional and contemporary hybrid that caters for all tastes and occasions, with 267 luxurious and spacious rooms, 6 restaurants and 15 private dining spaces…You could live in this building happily and never want to leave.
A Dapper Chapper favourite is the (Andaz RED) Suite.
The suite is a stunning piece of design work, largely inspired by Sir Terence Conran, which boldly and successfully captures the charm of London’s East.
“I am proud to have collaborated with the Andaz brand and (RED) on a suite design that will give guests a great deal of pleasure while doing a great deal of good in the world. Through carefully curated and commissioned artwork and photography by local artists, we injected the vibrant and creative vibe of East London into the suite and mixed in contemporary hotel design with a domestic feel.”
- Sir Terence Conran
What’s more, it’s a collaboration with (RED) – the AIDS organisation founded by Bono and Bobby Shriver. A portion of each suite booking goes directly to (RED)’s to support their fight to end AIDS.
What to expect…
There are many who view certain hotels as their home from home and that is exactly what this suite instills during your stay. The room layout was adjusted to create a living and dining area as well as a separate bedroom, while introducing finishes and furniture to distinctly set it apart from other hotel experiences.
If you’re like me and believe that a hotel room should be judged on the bathroom then you’re going to love this suite as everything appears classic with a contemporary edge.
The suite also features work by British portrait and fashion photographer, Rankin. Each portrait tells the story of how (RED) funds were put to work on the ground, showcasing mothers and children in Africa who have thrived because of the (RED) funds from partners like the Andaz brand.
So, whether you’re a London native looking for somewhere to spice up a typical night in the capital, or someone who is thinking of visiting the city soon, I’d certainly advise you check-in to the Andaz and request the (RED) suite. A spectacular looking hotel that provides a unique and fulfilling experience.
