The Henrietta Hotel is the first London hotel by Experimental Group – Romée de Goriainoff, Pierre-Charles Cros, Olivier Bon and Xavier Padovani. Located in Covent Garden, it flaunts interiors by acclaimed designer Dorothée Meilichzon, who recently worked on the Paradis Hotel, the Grand Pigalle Hotel, the Bachaumont Hotel and the Panache Hotel in Paris.
Nominated for Designer of the Year by “Maison & Objet” in 2015, Meilichzon created eighteen unique rooms with a vaguely retro style, adding handmade and custom details, grand headboards, multiple paneling, frames and mirrors.
For chef Ollie Dabbous’s Michelin-starred restaurant, forty exclusive Vico Magistretti chairs were selected. The Henrietta Hotel is a perfect mix and match of references from the 1950s, 1960s and Scandinavian style, with a touch of gold, marble and wood. A melting pot that is popular in interior design today and that adds to the British capital city a new iconic address. A must-see stop, even if just for a cocktail.
