The recently opened NED Hotel in the heart of London offers guests five-star luxury in one of the City’s landmark historical buildings – with an extra special golden touch.
Housed in the Grade I-listed former Midland Bank headquarters on the Poultry, the NED has 252 bedrooms, nine restaurants, a spa, a gym and a rooftop pool with panoramic views over London.
Location and quality of service alone ensure the NED holds its own amongst London’s finest hotels. But the real star attraction is the building itself. Designed by acclaimed architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, the landmark boasts an extravagant underground vault immortalised in the 1964 James Bond film Goldfinger. Now guests and James Bond fans can sit and enjoy a Vodka Martini, shaken, not stirred, in the bar where the film’s Fort Knox scenes were filmed.
Owned by private members club Soho House and a New York hotel developer, The NED is designed to grab attention from top to bottom. In order to deliver a level of service to live up to the hotel’s historic location, the owners wanted a world-class communications system installed. They turned to Brentwood for help.
