The Kimpton Fitzroy London hotel is ideally located in the eminent Bloomsbury area of central London, which has been dubbed the Capital’s intellectual hub due to the number of parks, museums and universities that it possesses. When viewing the hotel from Russell Square, you could be forgiven for thinking that you’re looking at a palace. Dating back to 1898, the breath-taking exterior of Charles Fitzroy Doll’s Grade II listed building abounds with turrets, arches and even four life-size statues of British queens.
Having reopened in 2018 after an £85 million refurbishment, the interior of the hotel sumptuously infuses contemporary excellence with glorious original features. This will be evident as soon as your guests enter the main foyer and immediately experience a sea of marble, including a sweeping staircase, plus the remarkable original Zodiac floor mosaic.
The nine event spaces, which offer something for every taste, all boast natural daylight and are resplendent with original architectural features, as well as providing all the facilities and services needed to ensure your event is a great success.
The largest and finest of the spaces is the glorious ballroom, which has its own private entrance off Bernard Street. The ballroom is guaranteed to amaze guests with its stunning lobby and foyer, soaring ceiling, windows along the entire length of one wall and a dazzling mezzanine gallery that overlooks the main room.
The other event rooms, all named after members of the celebrated Bloomsbury group, are on the lower-ground floor and can splendidly accommodate gatherings ranging from eight to 80 people. All of them offer the same excellent classic design features that can be found throughout the hotel.
Also available for large groups and exclusive hire is the Palm Court dining area which forms the heart and social hub of Kimpton Fitzroy London. The exquisite combination of the towering glass ceiling that floods the area with light and informal clusters of seating amongst a profusion of greenery gives Palm Court a delightfully laid-back, outdoor feel.
Overall, the hotel provides 334 guest rooms and four dining/drinking establishments, with discounted room block-booking available to help simplify wedding planning if required.
Russell Square Underground station (Piccadilly line) is adjacent to Kimpton Fitzroy London and has direct connections to King’s Cross St Pancras Station and Heathrow Airport.
