Threadneedles’ entry-level rooms raise the bar for a standard double. Inviting queen-sized beds are the focal point of these luxury hotel rooms, which vary in size, some with high corniced ceilings. Large windows flood the rooms with natural light and, in some, provide panoramic city views. Sweeping gold and tan curtains let you feel cosy when required. A glass-topped wooden desk gives you space to work, or somewhere to enjoy room service later in the evening.
