Deep in the heart of London’s historic Strand District, steps away from the river Thames and nestled among theaters, restaurants and museums, you’ll find the ME Hotel. Located in the Marconi House, once home to the popular Gaiety Theater as well as the former headquarters of the BBC, it now holds two restaurants, a rooftop bar and lounge with panoramic views of London, a fully equipped 24-hour gym and meeting space for up to 300 people over seven conference rooms. The hotel is the perfect place for business or pleasure.
If the luxuriously appointed rooms and stunning views aren’t enough, the ME by Meliá Aura experience will have you wishing you could stay forever. An Aura team, unlike a normal concierge, is on staff around the clock to make sure your stay is truly unforgettable and your every wish and desire fulfilled.
Here, DuJour spoke to Nicole Neves from the ME London team to find out more.
