The Hoxton Hotel

Arriving at the Hoxton Hotel you’re immediately greeted by a large open foyer with bare bricked walls, large fireplaces, and even larger chandeliers, giving the space a feeling of grandeur. The place was abuzz with a cool looking crowd, all with their obligatory Macs.

The place has a laid back cool vibe, with the staff in trainers, retro photo booths, iPads and a suitably upbeat soundtrack in the background.
