Bloomsbury is best known for its prominence in the literary history of London, home of famed authors and poets from the regaled era of the 1920’s and 30’s, now characterized by an eclectic menagerie of select shops, boutiques, chic brasseries, Bohemian sophistication, and refined gardens. The Bloomsbury Hotel in its recent revisioning has been redesigned and refurbished with homage to its 1928 original Georgian design by Sir Edwin Lutyens.
