London’s hotel scene is booming, with something for every budget, from boutique retreats to five-star grand dames. One standout, Ham Yard Hotel, shows off the contemporary, irreverent style of Kit Kemp, who has filled the property with cheery patterned fabrics and wallpaper, original art, and striking light fixtures. She and her husband, Tim, own the Firmdale Hotel chain and unveiled the Ham Yard in 2014. Its amenities also go beyond the standard list, with a vintage bowling alley, a movie theater, a roof terrace overlooking the Soho skyline, and a tree-filled interior courtyard.
