Rooms & Suites

Step off a 21st-century London street into a distinctly British past.

Every hotel room at The Academy offers views over quiet Gower Street road at the front or pretty London rooftops at the building’s rear. Through wide, twisting corridors and staircases you’ll find rooms and suites restored to accentuate their Regency character while providing the touches of modernity needed for a comfortable stay. Muted tones of fawn and burnt umber are combined with sensitive furnishing to perfect the period-specific look.

Double Rooms

The comfortable queen-size beds — crisp white sheets in keeping with the light tones of the rooms — are the focal points of these Regency-era spaces. Interiors are airy, with tan and sand tones across walls meeting darker shades of butterscotches and greys on the carpets. Tall windows are dressed with drapes detailed with bronze floral patterns. Larger than our single rooms, decor particulars vary from room to room; however, all offer a hint of the hotel’s past through appropriate furnishings and walls hanging with framed art.

Junior Suites

As well as the luxurious king-size beds, the sofas unfold into a double bed, allowing The Academy to offer some of the finest family hotel suites in London’s West End (each can accommodate up to two adults and two children). The Junior Suites all feature Nespresso machines and contain larger TVs than the rooms, giving a true space to relax


Each Junior Suite is individually named after famous artists and writers in the ‘Bloomsbury Set’, including Virginia Woolf and John Maynard Keynes. The suites feature large living areas complete with corduroy sofas and mahogany-coloured coffee tables. A number of the rooms have grand marble fireplaces under large mirrors.

Single Rooms

The Academy Hotel’s 12 single rooms have delicately restored Georgian interiors, the high ceilings and mirrors making the room feel more spacious. Plush upholstered chairs are beside wooden desks, meaning you have a relaxing space if you need to work. These snug rooms, each with a modern ensuite shower room, have windows facing either our courtyard garden or pretty Gower Street.

Luxury Suites

This suite features all of the facilities and furnishings of our Junior Suites but is more spacious, with a large lounge area in a separate room. A highlight is access to your own private courtyard garden, complete with table and chairs for when al fresco dining is preferred. Up to two adults and two children can make the most of the Garden Suite with the sofa able to become a double bed.

Luxury Double/Twin Rooms

Layout and specific design details vary depending on where the room is within The Academy. Some boast centuries-old fireplaces; another is split over two levels. The ornately carved white cornices decorating the ceiling are original features. The floors can be on a slight slant in places — all contributing to the rich character of this Grade II listed hotel along with gilt-framed mirrors and paintings. Large beds can be used as one queen-size bed or split into two singles.
