Located in the bustling and stylish area of Clerkenwell, the Rookery sits between The City and London’s main business district. Near the Tate Modern as well as the Barbican—Europe’s largest art and conference center—the hotel shares its neighborhood’s sense of culture, curiosity and comfort. Dark wood paneling, stone floors and antique furniture evoke the sense of elegant history travelers to London seek, while glowing fires and friendly staff make one feel like they are in an exclusive club, rather than a hotel. Each room creates this sense of comfort and class, from the vintage pictures on the wall to the fresh baked croissants served to guests in their room. The Rookery also has it’s own ‘house cat’, called Lady Grey, a friendly grey tuxedo tabby.
The Rookery offers two levels of room. The Club Double, with its 17th century carved oak beds or Georgian four-posters, as well as bathrooms with period plumbing fixtures and fittings. Superior Double rooms offer all of these luxuries in a larger room. While the rooms all create a sense of period charm, each is equipped with the latest technology, including complimentary Wi-Fi, flat screen television, and iPod docking station. Those looking to explore beyond their room can pop down to the conservatory, with its working fireplace, comfortable chairs and shelves of great reading material. For groups, there is the library, a distinguished meeting place for up to 10 people, with oak-panelled walls anchored by large bookshelves. Larger meeting groups can explore the Drawing Room, with a large stone fireplace, space for 14 guests, entered through a massive set of mahogany doors.
The Rookery offers top-notch service, particularly suited to travelers seeking to get the most out of London. The staff can arrange tickets to top London shows, set reservations at nearby restaurants including St. John or pull strings to arrange access to exclusive clubs. Those looking for a quieter evening are also in luck, as they staff can arrange for flowers, champagne or any other amenities guests could ask for to make the night truly memorable.
