Worldhotels, a premier group of independent hotels, is proud to announce a new member, the Courthouse Hotel London. Formerly the Great Marlborough Street Magistrate’s Court, the Courthouse Hotel London is now one of central London’s most trendy and iconic hotels.
The property is now part of the international hotel group and boasts 116 contemporary-designed rooms that range from the Classics to the Magistrate Suites and the two-bedroom Lalique Penthouse Suite, all of which create a statement of elegance combined with modern luxuries.
Worldhotels currently offers 450 hotels in 250 destinations and 65 countries worldwide. The addition of the Courthouse Hotel London is part of the brand’s strategy of further expansion in Europe.
The building is Grade-II listed, and many remnants of the hotel’s rich history are still visible including the Waiting Room where people gathered before entering the court room. The new pan-Asian SILK Restaurant is the former Courtroom 1 and The BAR retains the original prison cell blocks. Over the years, the court heard many famous cases that included the appearance of Mick Jagger, John Lennon, Oscar Wilde and Keith Richards.
With an enviable location on Soho’s Great Marlborough Street, the five-star Courthouse Hotel London is also home to the Soho Sky Terrace; a secret roof-top bar to enjoy a quiet drink above the capital’s hustle and bustle. The Carnaby Brasserie is available for all-day dining and is the perfect spot for guests to enjoy a quintessentially-British afternoon tea or a pre-theatre dinner.
For private events, the fully equipped facilities can be configured to accommodate a variety of events for up to 150 guests. In addition, the private screening room at Courthouse Hotel London is one of the largest private cinemas in the capital, with capacity to accommodate an audience of 100 in luxurious leather seats with individual armrests and fold out tables.
Guests can also choose to unwind in the hotel’s Sanook Spa, which features a heated indoor pool, relaxation room, sauna and gym. Bespoke spa treatments are also offered in the double treatment room using renowned spa products from Sultan de Saba.
Courthouse Hotel London is positioned where Mayfair, Soho and the West End meet. Located only three minutes’ walk from Oxford Circus Tube Station for shopping on Oxford and Regent Streets, next to London Palladium Theatre, Carnaby Street at its footsteps, and a stone’s throw from Liberty London department store, it is the perfect base for domestic and international guests visiting London.
