The Connaught

Art aficionados will delight further at the collection of original artworks from artists like Damien Hirst and Barbara Hepworth.

The 19th-century red-brick facade of The Connaught is as instantly recognizable as the curious water feature outside: a piece by Japanese architect Tadao Ando, named Silence, it sees a mist of water seep into the air every fifteen minutes. Art aficionados will delight further at the 3,000-strong collection of original artworks from artists like Damien Hirst, Louise Bourgeois and Barbara Hepworth. The rooms here are contemporary in style and airy in feel. Expect marble televisions, a heated toilet seat and state-of-the-art sound and visual equipment. It is also a haven for foodies. The hotel boasts an excellent restaurant from Hélène Darroze (two Michelin stars) which underwent a full refurbishment in 2019. There is also a signature restaurant from Jean-Georges Vongerichten, who runs a global food empire.
