In the middle of London’s Bloomsbury district, the Montague on the Gardens hotel has opened its new Bedford suite. Named after the successive Dukes of Bedford who all played a part in creating Bloomsbury, the one-bedroom Bedford suite has both living and dining spaces.

Guests can enter through their own private street entrance or from the hotel, to discover the suite with a bedroom, living and dining room, two outdoor patios and two bathrooms with dark blue Caesar stone marble.

The décor is what makes this suite unique, with its blue-and-white theme, walls with elegantly striped silk wallpaper, and artwork by Spanish artist and sculptor Joan Miró and French artist Henri Matisse. Large windows frame views of evergreen trellises, and fresh flowers can be found in each room. Personalized touches of Old-time English luxury include Chinese blue and white porcelain 19th-century garden seats, a Victorian mahogany extending dining table, custom-made wing chairs and a 19th-century gilt and wood mirror molded with acanthus leaves.

HOTEL OPTIMIZATION PART 2 | SEPTEMBER 10 & 24, 2020

Survival in these times is highly dependent on a hotel's ability to quickly adapt and pivot their business to meet the current needs of travelers and the surrounding community.

To make room for larger parties, the suite also interconnects with the hotel’s Guvnor's suite, creating a combined three-bedroom and three-bathroom super suite.
