Hotel Indigo in Stratford-upon-Avon will take centre stage in Shakespeare's home town on February 4, for its official opening after a multi-million pound restoration.
Fittingly, renovation of the listed halftimbered building was completed by the same firm that carried out the major works to London's Globe Theatre. Reflecting the market town's history, the 93 rooms have been designed on three themes.
In the original 16th century building many of the Tudor rooms overlook New Place, the site of the Bard's family home. Housed in the newer modern wing are the Contemporary rooms, while the charming Georgian Townhouse rooms offer a touch of luxury.
Chef Mike Robinson, owner of London's only Michelin-starred pub, will be bringing his 'field to fork' philosophy to the Woodsman Restaurant to serve a very fine British menu.
Doubles from PS129 ([euro]144) a night.

Perfectly located in the historic and political centre of the city, the glamorous Doyle Bar (formerly the Bar Dupont) will be the social hub for both visitors and residents alike. Doubles from $300 ([euro]263) a night.
