London Preview: Dorset Square Hotel

And they say you can’t go home again. But London’s boutique hotel virtuosos Firmdale (Haymarket HotelCrosby Street Hotel, etc.) have gone back to their first property, the Dorset Square Hotel, and revived it for the 21st Century. What has emerged, unsurprisingly, is a hotel-in-a-townhouse brimming with 38 rooms inspired by designer Kit Kemp’s signature bold and playful colors and textures.

Situated in Marylebone, Dorset Square is one of the early beneficiaries of Kemp’s buzzed about new fabric and rug collection with Christopher Farr. The rooms are flanked with oak and marble, and there’s an opulent, fireplace-adorned drawing room (this is England, after all). The sexy Potting Shed restaurant and bar is set to become one of the capital’s buzziest new scenes. Another winner from Firmdale.
