Redesigned Radisson Hotel Opens in Covent Garden in London
The Radisson Edwardian Mercer Street Hotel, located in an area of London’s trendy Covent Garden neighborhood known informally as Seven Dials, has completed a $24 million redesign.
The 137-room boutique hotel, formerly the Radisson Edwardian Mountbatten, features eight new suites and Apple TVs in all rooms allowing connections with iPads, iPhones and iPods. Suites have neighborhood views, large bathrooms with walk-in showers and separate dressing rooms with refrigerators.
The hotel offers mezze-style fare at the new Dial Restaurant & Bar, a new gym, plus six conference and meeting rooms hosting six to 50 people, with natural daylight, and HD-ready and touch-screen technology. Within Seven Dials, dining options range from traditional English pubs to Mon Plaisir, London’s oldest French restaurant. And for über power grooming, you can pop into Stuart Phillips for the most expensive haircut in London, priced at £20,000 (approx. $31,450).
Rates start at £179 per night, based on double occupancy, excluding tax and breakfast.
