We chose the Soho hotel because it is the sister hotel to the Crosby Street Hotel (also in Soho) New York. We have stayed at the latter several times and have never been disappointed. The only question was which Firmdale hotel to stay at. I think it was the look of the bar that tempted my partner to book here in the end.
We arrived last week after a somewhat fraught drive from the South West which had been having some very well publicized dreadful weather. Once we arrived the welcoming committee took care of the car and everything else. Remarkably we were upgraded to a two bedroom apartment!!!!! Which was huge and amazing. Decked out in the usual Kit Kemp decor, which my partner loves. Yes, she bought the book! The minibar (pic below) was without doubt the most impressively stocked minibar I've ever encountered. Indeed it came essentially with a fully kitted out kitchen.
The bar was fun and buzzy.
The location is brilliant and whilst you are definitely in amongst the centre of town with ready access to anything it accomodation was extremely relaxing.
I also checked out the conference facilities and I think I be booking a small gathering later in the year.
I know we may be biased because we were inexplicably upgraded to a sensational room, but it truly was a fantastic place to stay and we were disappointed to leave after a couple of days.
We were asked on the way out, how they compared to the Crosby St (in NYC) and I must say they certainly disappoint.
We are heading back to London (from Oz) later this year and the only dilemma is whether to stay at the Soho or try the other Firmdale offerings.
