When we travel anywhere, we often look for optimum comfort in wherever we plan to stay for the night. In the modern world, we also look for digital connection and some sort of proof that the hotel is evolving with the times. Eccleston Square Hotel is one luxury boutique hotel situated in London that goes above and beyond in terms of in-room technology offering high-tech amenities that you probably didn’t know existed. The cutting-edge rooms are outfitted with 46 inch HD 3D Neo plasma Panasonic TVs with surround sound that you can connect your smart phone to and touch pads which control almost everything including the lighting, curtains, room temperature and even the ‘Do Not Disturb’ signal.
The bathrooms are equipped with rainfall showers, heated flooring and and flat screen TVs concealed in the bathroom mirror. SmartGlass shower walls turn from clear to opaque at the touch of a button giving you as much privacy or light as you wish.
The £12,000 (around $18k) beds from Hästen have massage systems with variable settings that range from mild relaxation to more vigorous stimulation and are provided with the finest Italian linen by Rivolta Carmignani and luxury non-allergenic bedding.
To ensure you are always connected with the best of everything, the hotel provides its guests with a free iPad which becomes their personal digital concierge giving the “access to the inaccessible”. Using the iPad, one can order meals (available 24hr) and housekeeping service, have a 3D Blu-ray film delivered to the room, request an in-room massage or arrange appointments at the beauty salon, book a table at one of London’s hot clubs and use other services.
There’s also a media lounge alongside the Bistrot on the Square restaurant, wherein technology meets fine dining and a business trip can be made all the more interesting.
You are sure to be astounded that all this is found within a 19th century Georgian facade. Located on the borders of Victoria and Belgravia, it is certainly one prime London location worth staying the night at, if only to enjoy the amenities that not many other hotels in the world currently has all in one place.
With rooms starting at £184 (around $280), what you receive at this hotel is well worth the price you pay, particularly when it includes a free mini bar, cooked breakfast, complimentary local calling and so much more!
