Hotel Description

No, not that kind of exhibitionist. (You’re thinking of New York’s famous Standard High Line.) The Exhibitionist Hotel is about art exhibitions, rather than exhibitions of a more personal variety. Here it’s the hotel that’s showing off its goods, not the guests — suffice it to say that if you’re a fan of sober, restrained, eminently subtle interiors, then you’ve made a grave mistake.

The rest of us, however, can’t help but feel enlivened by the riot of color that greets us as we arrive. The bar is a veritable color chart of vibrant spirits and potions, and each of the rooms stakes out one of a few highly saturated color schemes and rides it as far as it’ll go. And that’s to say nothing about the artwork, which quite literally protrudes from every unoccupied corner of the place, beginning with a rather ferocious bull sculpture just off the reception. It’s also plastered to nearly every wall — the corridors, too often a hotel’s most neglected space, are decked out with particularly vivid murals.

Fortunately, amid all the visual fireworks, there’s a bit of time set aside for the old-fashioned values of hospitality. The rooms aren’t massive, but they are comfortable, and the bathrooms are quite up to date. In-room spa treatments are available, as is a personal stylist, to address the inevitable feelings of inadequacy occasioned by your first stroll around South Kensington. And along with the breakfast, always a bit of a highlight in English hotels, there’s 24-hour room service, and light fare served all day long in the restaurant and lounge as well.
