Number Sixteen forms part of a row of gleaming white stucco mid Victorian townhouses. It originally opened in the 1980’s and instantly became popular with discerning travellers looking for an alternative to the larger Park Lane hotels. Now several years on, the hotel has a Firmdale point of view. Kit Kemp redesigned the hotel in her signature, fresh modern English style. Number Sixteen comprises 42 individually designed bedrooms each containing all the facilities expected in a Firmdale property including desk, personal safe, voice mail and high speed wireless internet access, DVD players and mini bars. Bathrooms are beautifully designed in solid granite and oak. There are two ground floor drawing rooms. The first is light and bright and features a quirky mix of modern art and furniture. The second is more warm and cosy and incorporates a fully stocked honesty bar.
But it is Number Sixteen’s conservatory featuring an interesting mix of ethnic art, and private tree filled garden, that really sets it apart. The tree filled garden runs the length of the hotel and serves drinks and light refreshments all day. It is perfect for guests to relax in, dine or entertain friends or colleagues. Many of the bedrooms overlook the garden. The garden rooms have their own private courtyards and with direct access to the garden.
