Boasting the title of London’s first hotel, Brown’s on Albemarle Street has maintained a five star reputation ever since it was opened in 1837 by Lord Byron’s valet. Playing an important part in the West End’s history, staying here puts you amongst esteemed guests such as Agatha Christie, Alexander Graham Bell, who made the first ever telephone call at the hotel, and Rudyard Kipling, who used its peaceful chambers to complete The Jungle Book.
Despite its impressive past, and classic Georgian townhouse exterior, Brown’s caters to a modern clientele with contemporary interiors. Their 115 rooms have been designed by Olga Polizzi, Design Director and Deputy Chairman of Rocco Forte Hotels, who own the hotel. The artwork around it is another talking point with works by Tracey Emin, John Rankin, and Bridget Riley on display. Black and white fashion photography by Terrence Donovan decorates the hotel’s bar that’s named after the 60’s legend, including some of his more racier work which you’ll see if you ask for a seat in “the naughty corner”.Read More
