Considering I class myself as quite the traveller, it’s surprising that I haven’t yet stayed at the Andaz in London. Not only is it easy for me to get to from Essex but it is also absolutely beautiful inside.
So, what is the premise?
In a fabulous location to explore East London, Andaz Hotel have used the festive period to ensure their guests experience true Shoreditch. Displayed in the hotels reception, guests can look at the East London highlights, from suggestions of where to eat to landmarks of the district.
How will it work?
Each day the Andaz will reveal a new window just like a traditional advent calendar. Aswell as sharing the joy with hotel guests they will be doing a daily reveal on their Instagram which means that we can all enjoy the benefits of finding out more about the gems East London has to offer.
The launch event was decidedly Christmassy which was nice, because the temperature in London plunged to Arctic temperatures last week and if that is going to happen you want some mulled wine as a consolation prize for spending a week of lunch breaks running to Pret trying your hardest to let the cold snap hinder your ability to look fabulous while ordering your festive flat white. The hotels reception and bar area is beautiful and the advent calendar makes a great centre piece. It may just be the half a cup of mulled wine talking after not drinking for three months but I had a really pleasant evening, made all the more pleasant by the fact I got to see a former colleague who I actually really miss and we managed to be nice to each other (ish) for the majority of the evening (again, this is probably down to the alcohol).
How can I see it?
If you are not planning on staying at the Andaz any time soon, then head over to their Instagram page and give them a follow so that you won’t miss out on anything interesting behind the doors.
