The Academy is a collection five Georgian townhouses that have been combined to create a charming luxury hotel. It is located in London's
West End in Bloomsbury. The Academy, a member of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World Collection, is now a proud participant of a multi-million-pound interior renovation by YTL Hotels. Alexandra Champalimaud, a New York-based designer, managed the entire refurbishment. She created a unique blend of vintage and modern with a nod towards the lives and loves that the Bloomsbury Set lived and worked in the area during the early 20th century. The boutique hotel, which has 50 bedrooms and suites, was remodeled in Bloomsbury. It combines timeless glamour with traditional features to create a modern take on townhouse living. The Academy offers a delicious breakfast in The Refectory, which is stylish and casual. The Alchemy Bar, located on the ground floor, is the ideal Bloomsbury spot for cocktails, speciality spirits or a glass of wine or champagne. Enjoy a delicious Afternoon Tea in the tranquil courtyard while enjoying drinks from the extensive menu. The Library at The Academy allows guests to reflect and read while The Academy Book Club pays homage to the local literary history by allowing them to become immersed in the Bloomsbury Set through intimate monthly meetings for coffee, cake and conversation.
