TQ2678 : Hotel, Cromwell Road

taken 7 years ago, near to Kensington, Kensington And Chelsea, Great Britain

Hotel, Cromwell Road
Hotel, Cromwell Road
Not exactly attractive or unobtrusive, but impressive in a way by virtue of its monstrous size. Pevsner calls it "unnecessarily aggressive" and thinks the roofline is "menacingly angular" (TQ2678 : Detail of hotel, Cromwell Road). It hardly seems to need saying that it was designed by Richard Seifert & Partners, 1971-72.
It is currently a Holiday Inn.
