Inside one in all London’s biggest hotel rooms: A review of Hyatt’s Churchill Residential Suite

Published:

City-centre hotel rooms have a repute for being a little bit of a squeeze for the occupants – but this one bucks the trend in jaw-dropping style. It’s roughly the identical size as a big detached house.

Welcome to ‘The Churchill Residential Suite’ on the Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill hotel, which is spread over 3,498 square feet (325 sq m) – that is roughly 3 times larger than the square footage of the typical three-bedroom UK home. 

So, it has loads of space for all of the family – and any passing friends, too. What’s more, it’s slap-bang within the centre of London overlooking Portman Square, two minutes’ stroll from Selfridges on Oxford Street with Soho, Marylebone and Mayfair all inside walking distance.

Siobhan Grogan checked in to The Churchill Residential Suite – ‘a collection roughly the identical size as a big detached house’ – on the Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill hotel. Above is the suite’s main bedroom

The suite is so enormous that once I checked in recently, I could barely even hear my two children once we were in separate rooms.

Elegantly decorated in calming shades of grey and taupe with mahogany furniture throughout, the suite’s 4 bedrooms all have their very own marble bathrooms amply stocked with an enormous range of Molton Brown products right down to lip balm and mouth wash. 

One room may be become a personal gym if preferred, while one other is particularly designed for kids, complete with a pop-up tent, Childs Farm bathroom amenities, mini bathrobes and a spread of toys and books.

Kids may even take home their very own cuddly toy version of Winston Churchill’s beloved cat Jock, already waiting for them on their bed once they arrive. 

Although staggeringly – while staff are too discreet to disclose the names of any former guests – one lets slip that the suite’s last resident stayed here for a yr entirely on their very own.

That’s despite the actual fact the main bedroom alone is considerably larger than the typical London flat, with a walk-in wardrobe, cavernous bathroom and wraparound balcony with sofas.

Both the suite and the hotel itself take Sir Winston Churchill as design inspiration throughout - the suite’s giant study (above) is modelled on Churchill’s own with a Chesterfield leather armchair

For those who fancy a change of scenery, you possibly can simply head over to the other side of the suite where there’s a second balcony for more skyline views.

The suite also comes with a full kitchen and dedicated chef if requested, a dining room that seats 10 and an enormous front room with ornate fireplace and Offenbach grand piano. 

Though the hotel opened after Sir Winston Churchill’s death and has no real link to the person himself aside from borrowing his name, each the suite and the hotel itself take the previous Prime Minister as design inspiration throughout. 

The bathrooms are amply stocked with a vast range of Molton Brown products down to lip balm and mouth wash

Walls of the suite display original artwork from Churchill himself, such as his painting 'A Day at Chartwell', pictured above

That is most noticeable within the suite’s giant study, which is modelled on Churchill’s own with a Chesterfield leather armchair, shelves lined with books and even the odd bronze ornament of the top-hatted politician. 

His presence is felt within the art throughout the suite, too. Partitions display curated pieces from each the hotel’s own private collection and the celebrated Thompson Gallery nearby, and even include original artwork from Churchill himself.

After all, you possibly can expect the complete VIP treatment if you happen to stay. A dedicated team is available in any respect times to rearrange whatever your heart desires including Champagne picnics in London parks or private art gallery access.

You may as well use an exclusive lift to access the suite without – horror! – mingling with other hotel guests. 

But if you happen to really need to feel like you will have London all to yourself, ask at reception for a key to the leafy, private Portman Square Gardens just across the road. 

Though the square’s residents and other hotel guests are allowed beyond its high partitions and locked gate, it was completely empty once we visited despite sunny weather so we had the tennis court, children’s playground and flower-lined lawns entirely to ourselves, right in the center of London.

If that is how the opposite half lives, I could definitely get used to it.
