UK: Urban Villa has announced the opening of its first property, in the Great West Quarter development in London.
The 100 all-suite property is set in a glass-clad, cylindrical
building off the Great West Road in Brentford.
All bedrooms feature enclosed winter gardens with floor-to-ceiling panoramic views, with kitchens and "expertly-curated contemporary features".
Urban Villa's interiors are designed by New York architects Grzywinski + Pons, noted for their progressive work on Manhattan's Nolitan and The Hotel on Rivington. Artwork comes from Lazarides Editions, part of the world's leading urban art gallery; the bedrooms also feature both complimentary Malin + Goetz toiletries and Nespresso machines, plus 50" Samsung Smart TVs. Rooms range from 350 to 486 square feet, and offer complimentary 1GB super-fast wireless internet.
Public areas include a coffee bar, the Sour Diesel bar and a gym.
Urban Villa says it is "dedicated to creating no ordinary hotel experience, including removing any sense of awkwardness from a hotel stay - for instance, both spa treatments and personal training sessions can be ordered to the suites at no additional charge (fees for the services themselves remain)".
Guests also have a choice between soft or hard mattresses. Further features include same day laundry, and an in-house launderette.
