The Metropolitan Hotel
Anyone coming to The Metropolitan hotel knows that they’re in for a stunning time. There are so many incredible features on offer that we’d struggle to list them all here. Not that you’d know it from the outside. A monolith of glass and steel, the hotel is a bit of an eyesore. It looks like any old chain, but the true secrets that it has to offer lie within. Give it a chance and you’ll see what it has to offer.
It is, for example, home to one of the famed Nobu restaurants. These brilliant Asian fusion restaurants were once the toast of the town. In 2014 however, both London branches lost their coveted Michelin stars, suggesting that the scene had moved on. We’re divided on the issue: Nobu is still undoubtedly a brilliant chain, deserving of massive recognition. It had grown stale though, and it was this failure to adapt that cost their the critical acclaim that the star represents. Make no mistake though, if you love good food, you’ll still be in heaven here. For those behind the vanguard, the lack of truly cutting edge cuisine is of little cuisine, and if you’re one of them then The Metropolitan is still an excellent place to stay.
