Our 5 Favourite Hotels for a Long Weekend

THE HOXTON, HOLBORN LONDON
Hoxton hotels are popping up everywhere from Shoreditch to Amsterdam, but the Holborn property is our current favourite. The spacious lobby, complete with comfy couches and Mac desktop computers, help you get down to business fuelled with the best coffee in town via Holborn Grind. Gathering a group? The Apartment, a private, fully equipped meeting and events space, is the coolest loft in the East End, thehoxton.com.

HOTEL SP34, COPENHAGEN
Homed in the heart of Copenhagen’s Latin Quarter, this slick, Nordic boutique hotel is
a hip Scandic hangout. Meet clients over an organic breakfast, catch up on emails on the rooftop terrace, and soak up the city’s creative energy, brochner-hotels.dk.

SOHO HOUSE, ISTANBUL
If you have to endure a working holiday, this is the place to do it. Soho House Istanbul is the last word in a working environment, a private members? club in the city where working poolside on the rooftop or settling in to a plush leather couch in the Drawing Room (adorned in chandeliers) and being waited on hand and foot are the order of the day. It’s the definition of Business Class, sohohouseistanbul.com/en. See also our recent review of Soho House, Chicago.

CROSBY STREET, NEW YORK CITY
Amidst the countless too-cool-for-school hotels in the city, Crosby Street is a veritable sanctuary. A sister hotel to the eclectic Ham Yard in London, the Kit Kemp- designed haven is a colourful, feminine breath of fresh air in the city that never sleeps. Situated on a quiet cobbled street
in SoHo, its sculpture garden is unbeatable for brainstorming on a sunny day, while the Drawing Room is a serene sanctum for
a private meeting, firmdalehotels.com.

THE DEAN, DUBLIN
The newest hotel in the capital is a hot-desking dream. The Dean has won us over on many levels, but mainly because it’s an impressive place to host meetings (we love The Blue Room). If you’re working solo, the lobby’s WiFi, coffee bar and contemporary art collection will have you hooked, deanhoteldublin.ie.
