A partner of Frieze Art Fair since 2008, Hyatt Regency London -The Churchill again returns to the top of the list as Frieze London’s Main Partner Hotel for Frieze 2013.
Just minutes by cab from the fair (or a quick walk through lovely Marylebone if you fancy a London stroll), The Churchill has welcomed the best of Frieze over the years not only for its fantastic location in relation to Regent’s Park but also as one of London’s top 5-star luxury properties. After a full day at the fair, gallery openings, and museum private views, The Churchill’s gracious staff, hospitality and thoughtful business and luxury amenities have provided a much-sought-after haven for Frieze guests and exhibitors to decamp, relax or catch-up on some last minute tasks before the next round of Frieze Week festivities.
Regulars of the hotel will be interested to know that in 2012 the hotel has expanded its association with contemporary art beyond hosting art fair guests to also hosting contemporary art itself on loan from The Saatchi Gallery. A specially curated exhibition from the Gallery now occupies the hotel’s lobby space making The Churchill, like Frieze, a place of discovery of the world’s top established and emerging contemporary artists.
Booking directly with the Hotel with your Frieze VIP code, a spacious Standard Room at The Churchill will come with a complimentary cocktail and Full English, but if you want to splurge for extra indulgence, a special rate for the Regency Club suites is a must-do. With a complimentary cocktail hour and breakfast in the private Club floors, personal concierge and express check-in/check-out, the London hotel experience doesn’t get much better. And if you are not arted out by the end of a day at the fair, The Churchill also offers a special Saatchi Suite in association with the Republic of Fritz Hansen, showing works from emerging artists from Saatchi Online. For more information, please email email@example.com or visit Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill.
The practical bits: overlooking beautiful Portman Square, the hotel provides a welcome escape from the hustle of Frieze Week whilst providing easy access to all activities around the fair. The always-stacked taxi rank will get you to Frieze London in 5 minutes, to Frieze Masters in 8, to the Royal Academy in 7, and to Tate Modern in 14 minutes, give or take a few, and is a stones throw from the lovely Wallace Collection.
If you need a bite, you’ll find no shortage of excellent food and drink in the hotel – the building itself is home to seasonal dining in The Montagu, not to mention Giorgio Locatelli’s Michelin-starred Locanda Locatelli (that is, if you miss the Locatelli pop-up at Frieze Masters). But if you are looking for a place en route back to the hotel from the fair to grab a bite, you wont miss some of London’s top restaurants along the way including L’Autre Pied (Blandford Street), Galvin (Baker Street), and the famous London tapas spot, Providores, on Marylebone High Street.
Work to do? The hotel’s 5-star status isn’t just about its top service, well-appointed guest rooms and suites or spacious bathrooms. The Churchill is fit to serve the art fair traveller with useful, convenient and discreet business amenities. Phone chargers for all types are situated in the lobby for a quick top-up before you head out for a busy day at the fair or evening gallery openings and Free WiFi runs throughout the area. For last minute shopping, you’ll find a brand new Monocle ship situated in the hotel lobby.
For the perfect ending to a busy day, the newly refurbished Churchill Bar & Terrace is a must to visit. This exquisite new bar with its glamorous private Terrace offers a dazzling menu of classic cocktails, and is well on its way to securing its status as London’s next destination bar. Guests can enjoy classic cocktails with a strong British legacy, expertly chosen whiskies and fine wines from the great Maisons. For Cigar smokers, a selection of 28 of the finest cigars, housed in a bespoke stained oak humidor, tempt even the most refined cigar connoisseurs.
Frieze is delighted to again partner with Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill for the 11th edition of the fair. If you need any help making arrangements for your stay at the hotel in London, please firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to assist.
