More than just a place to kip, Signature Living is an experience – from the giant multi-roomed living quarters, splashed with silver chesterfields, chandeliers and velvet bedspreads, to the special entertainment packages (think: cocktail master classes, private poker tournaments and pamper parties).
This bling abode, complete with Sex and the City, Moulin Rouge, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, James Bond and The Hangover-themed apartments, has stag and hen dos written all over it. They’ve also created a club room, so you don’t even need to leave the hotel to dance the night away – the Vault looks like Jay-Z’s local, with a twist. As well as a dance floor, it has 30 beds and a 10-berth whirlpool.
The designers claim that a stay here can also be romantic or professional, we had our doubts – until we learned of the free WiFi, various meeting spaces and projector screens that can be set up in many of the rooms. The Signature Living space would certainly spice up any presentation.
Food and drink: Each of the three Signature Living buildings has a catering service with rotating food and signature cocktail menus. Sanctum is the onsite restaurant, serving posh pub grub and hearty desserts. But if playing chef is more your thing, each room and apartment comes with a full kitchen complete with all the utensils you might need at the ready.
Price: Apartments from £17 per person per night (midweek) or £45 per person per week (weekends), themed hotel room packages from £45 per person per night.
