Historic Threadneedles is a 130,000 sq. ft. listed building built as a bank in 1856 and re-envisioned as a hotel and restaurant just this century. Set in the heart of the old City, minutes from Tower Bridge, its guests will find bowler-hatted business and history right on the doorstep. But it is also a good option for those who can’t decide between the sights of Soho and the buzz of Shoreditch, as it sits between the two.
Rooms and both elegant and relaxed, done in muted tones, with an emphasis on natural wood and soft lighting. With many here for business, the work areas are expansive and the beds deeply relaxing. Some of the older rooms were once bank executives' offices and have grand features such as paneled mahogany doors and marble fireplaces. Other rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows, or views over pretty Finch Lane.
Legendary chef Marco Pierre White has his restaurant on premises, perfect for a power lunch. The old banking counter is now the characterful hotel bar. But the very best thing about Threadneedles is the domed ceiling in the lobby, formerly the banking hall. Some say it's second only to the domed ceiling of nearby St. Paul’s Cathedral. Certainly, it feels like a roof under which important things happen.
