La Suite West
Designed by London interior designer Anoushka Hempel, La Suite West is a tranquil and minimalist boutique hotel just off Bayswater.
The interior is true to Hempel form and she makes use of strong, clean lines that clearly delineate spaces, and turning a traditional Georgian townhouse into something far sleeker and more contemporary. There is a strong emphasis on dark wood juxtaposed with white walls and clean marble. In the summer there is a lovely, secluded garden terrace that guests can make use of to soak up the dappled evening sun on long, communal tables lined with cushioned benches.
The restaurant, RAW, is all about healthy eating with an emphasis on the quality of the ingredients – the vegetarian menu is perfect for vegans and dairy-free diners. Probably not a hotel for the party animal, La Suite West is perfect for the, style-consicious zen-like mavens who glide effortlessly through the lobby.
