Spotted / London / The Hoxton


As I mentioned earlier, I spent several days exploring London and would love to share some of the gems I discovered out there. I’ll be posting many of these throughout the weekend and will jump back to San Francisco ones next week.

Let’s start with the fantastic hotel I stayed at: The Hoxton. This spot is located heart and center in the vibrant and art-filled neighborhood of Shoreditch. It’s truly my favorite area of London. Beyond convenience, the hotel offers well-designed rooms, a massive lounge for cocktails and meals or relaxing, a ping pong room, art gallery, free Wifi, free water and milk in your fridge + coffee and tea, and a complimentary breakfast of orange juice, a banana and a yummy yogurt parfait delivered to your door each morning. Oh and did I mention budget friendly? I’m not talking cheap, but affordable, especially with everything they offer. As their site notes: “We don’t overdo the opulence; we don’t lay it on thick. We do everything just right.”
