The new flagship hotel comes with a few new twists that will probably indulge the taste of savvy business travellers. For instance, guest have a chance to experience a brand new retail concept. In the coffee area, you can taste freshly made pastries and brewed coffee, while in collectionM, guests are able to buy an exclusive collection of books, art, and accessories from over 20 highly creative brands. However, the best is saved for the top, where guests have a chance to soak in the beautiful panoramic view of the Gherkin and The Shard, legendary skyscrapers, Tower Bridge, and the Tower of London itself, in the CloudM area, while relaxing with a cup of hot tea in their hands. For those who are all about business, the hotel offers an effective meeting-room area, known as SocietyM.
