Travel Tip: Sanderson Hotel in London

I always have travel on the brain.  

I was just reminiscing about my amazing trip to London in September on Blogtour London with Modenus. One of the many highlights was the last night dinner at Sanderson.  This hotel is off the hook!  I was taken the second I walked in the front door into the whimsical world of Phillipe Starke.  We retired to the Purple Bar for cocktails and treats hosted by Visa Luxury Hotel Collection. I was lucky enough to have been given a FABULOUS bottle of McCallan Amber. A treat to be sure.  As I was enveloped in a luxurious eggplant velvet and melted into the sultry banquettes I never wanted the moment to end. Luckily V of Modenus extended the night with a raucous final banquet for all. What a night to remember!

I highly recommend you hit the Sanderson on your next hop over the pond  (and take me with you, pretty please).

Enjoy this photographic tour...

Sanderson, in the heart of London’s West End, offers a retreat from the bustle of the city into a world of fantasy and well-being. The landmarked 1950s building has been transformed by Philippe Starck into a surreal Cocteau-like dream world, epitomising a new luxury that is smart, pared-down and tempered with a healthy dose of wit and irony. Agua spa, Sanderson’s renowned temple of body and soul, offers a vast array of treatments to pamper and soothe, restore and resurrect. Multiple dining and cocktail offerings grace Sanderson – just south of the infamous Long Bar lies Suka restaurant, where Malaysian cuisine merges with a refined European sensibility. Guests can dine al fresco year round at Berners Street Terrace, and our Mad Hatter’s Afternoon Tea in the Courtyard is on the “must-do” lists of London’s elite. Purple Bar provides an intimate space for cocktails and conversation, while the Billiard Room evokes an old world clubby vibe. Just steps from Oxford Street shopping and the Soho district in London,  Sanderson is a five star luxury boutique hotel ideally located for weekend breaks or business travel.

Purple Bar, with its veritable symphony of purples, lavenders and violets, is a chic and intimate lounge that has become one of London’s hottest gathering places, providing an intimate setting for meetings, receptions and special events.

The Billiard Room at Sanderson London has a low-key clubby vibe and features an antique silver-leafed billiard table, whimsical, lodge-like antler furniture and original 1950s stained glass design by John Piper, one of the most noted British artists of the 20th Century.
