The Ampersand Hotel - London, England

The Ampersand's luxury hotel rooms in Kensington are inspired by the local London neighborhood, with the design referencing five central concepts - botany, music, geometry, ornithology and astronomy.

These Victorian values of discovery and wonder, which define South Kensington's museums, appear in the design of all 111 rooms and suites, from the pattern of the V&A's costume collection, to the Science Museum's planets and phials, from the Natural History Museum's ornithological drawings to the drama and ceremony of the Royal Albert Hall. This modern sense of whimsy, however, never detracts from the comfort that lies at the heart of a night well slept.
