Café Royal, and the other Set Hotels, celebrate the seven arts, among them architecture. The precise restoration and refurbishment of the hotel by David Chipperfield is an architectural delight, and right outside the hotel’s front door is another. The Café Royal is located on Regent Street, a grand achievement of urban design by John Nash. Constructed between 1814 and 1825, the street cut a path through the warren of medieval streets typical of London and connected the city center with the then new Regent’s Park. While only one of John Nash’s buildings still stands, the street remains an impressive feat of urban planning and lined with later, but still listed, buildings.
