Hotels in Bayswater
The Jones is Bayswaterís striking art hotel which combines Edwardian elegance with drama. Built by Mewes and Davis who designed The Ritz, the building retains many of its original Edwardian features with gilt curves, frescoes and rosewood panelling. Complete with a stunning theatre commission by Edward VII for his mistress Lillie Langtry in the late 1800s, it has been restored to its former glory providing a stage for Londonís emerging creative talent. Each evening guests can sample a slice of contemporary cultural London, with 20 minute performances ranging from music to theatre to poetry. In contrast to the historic architecture of the public spaces, the fully-equipped guestrooms complete with flat-screen interactive TVs, free Wifi for the first hour and MP3 ports are hallmarked by more subtle tones and thoughtful, understated styling, with mood lighting and soft pillows for sleepy heads.You may not have the chance to hit the fashion track in neighbouring Notting Hill or experience the perennial bustle of Portobello, but off-beat, contemporary London will come to you. And when itís time to leave, the hotel is minutes from Paddington station, the home of the Heathrow Express Ė the fast track to Londonís premier international airport.
