Friday column: The Hoxton goes to New York

Published by Emma Lee-Potter in on Friday 26th October 2018

“Have you ever stayed at a Hoxton before?” asked the charming hotel receptionist. “I’ve stayed at all of them,” I said proudly, sounding like a middle-aged Hoxton groupie. We’d just arrived at the Hoxton’s first US outpost – in the chic neighbourhood of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Actually, I won’t be able to keep my record of staying in every Hoxton for long because the hotel group is expanding rapidly. To date it ...keep reading

Weekend in Amsterdam

Published by Emma Lee-Potter in on Friday 20th May 2016

The news that The Hoxton has opened a new hotel in Amsterdam was a good enough excuse for me.

Published by Emma Lee-Potter in on Thursday 16th February 2012

In my days as an on-the-road reporter I used to stay in hotels quite a lot. Now my hotel stays are as rare as my trips to the gym. But this week I hotfooted it to east London to spend two days with my daughter. After scouring scores of websites we eventually plumped to check into The Hoxton in Great Eastern Street. As well as being just round the corner from ...keep reading
