La Suite West — London, UK
The latest venture from Meir Abutbul, mastermind of London’s Blakes hotel, is housed in a quintessentially British Victorian terrace on a quiet, leafy West London street. Designed by Anouska Hempel, La Suite West is a subtle fusion of sleek sharp angles and Hempel’s trademark Asian details, with clean marble bathrooms and handcrafted four-posters in an elegant black and white colour palette. The hotel comprises 80 guestrooms, including a handful of ground-floor suites with private entry and access to private gardens. The kitchen is run by chef Marcello Kaminski, whose international menu is complemented by a sidebar of ’Honestly Healthy’ platters by chef Natasha Corrett and nutritionist Vicky Edgson.
