“Sick of being ripped off in hotels, founder of sandwich chain Pret a Manger, Sinclair Beecham has created a fair one in a brand-new building. The huge ground-floor space incorporates reception, shop, sitting room, bar, restaurant, internet café and two blazing fires. The place has a real buzz, with people chatting at tables and sofas. Working on Easyjet principles, the earlier you book, the less you pay. This is real Metropolitan cool.”

“The Hoxton hotel, where urban living meets country lodge lounging, opened in London on Friday 1st September 2006. With roaring fires and cool cocktails, Frette linen and flat screen TVs, sumptuous duck down duvets and free WiFi and amazing bar & restaurant the "Hoxton Grille". Even more amazing are the cheap rates.
Close to Old Street tube and the City of London, The Hoxton provides easy access to Moorgate, Finsbury Square and Liverpool Street and is staggering distance from some of London's best bars, restaurants and clubs. The Hoxton is a no smoking hotel.”
