Kimpton Hotels is renowned for its love of animals, and the Fitzroy property is no exception: if it fits in the elevator, it can stay, they say. So, bring your biggest or smallest dogs and bag a room that overlooks Russell Square Gardens – the ideal morning or late-night wee spot for your pet. Bedrooms are all cool monochrome, while the public areas are all grand marble and elegant mosaic floors. Here, you’re only a 10-minute walk from Oxford Street and Soho, where there’s plenty of retail therapy to be had.
