It is a modern building which from the front appears to be constructed out of glass only. The hotel does not have its name over the door the way other properties tend to.
The chic rooms have striking floor-to-ceiling windows and Philippe Starck furniture. Each room features stunning interactive light installations, London views and a flat-screen HDTV.
For global travelers with a cultured palate and a love of variety, Asia de Cuba restaurant, overseen by renowned international restaurateur Jeffrey Chodorow, combines elements of Asian and Cuban cuisine served sharing-style in a high energy London restaurant. Housed in a dramatically colonnaded space, Asia de Cuba's innovative menu is matched in its surroundings by a dramatic series of soaring art columns. Asia de Cuba not only serves huge sharing portions for dinner, it has adapted the famous dishes for Bento Boxes, perfect for lunch or pre-theatre. At the end of your experience, you can also take a little piece home with the new Chocolate Menu, featuring classic Asia de Cuba cocktails and flavours such as ‘Deluxe Mojito’ and ‘Thai Chilli’ encapsulated in chocolate.
From its dazzling location at the hub of Covent Garden, West End theatres and Trafalgar Square, St Martins Lane is a dramatic and daring reinvention of the urban resort. Smart, witty and sophisticated, Philippe Starck’s design is a brilliant collision of influences - from the modern to the baroque - that suffuses the hotel with energy, vitality and magic. Entered through improbably tall, luminescent yellow-glass revolving doors—the tallest in London—St Martins Lane’s lobby is a soaring and theatrical space that offers a provocative manipulation of dimension and proportion. Starck presents a visually stunning play on scale, with oversized columns and angled niches painted a deep fluorescent yellow, complemented by Portuguese limestone floors. From its acid-etched, double-height yellow glass facade to its unpredictable plays on vivid color to the dramatic series of columns that appear as shining towers, St Martins Lane’s lobby is a triumph of color and light.
