From Manhattan Loft Corporation, the company behind the Chiltern Firehouse and St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, comes the hotly anticipated The Stratford at Manhattan Loft Gardens. Housed in a skyscraper by SOM, the architecture firm that designed One World Trade Center, the hotel is part of a new wave of settlers forging Stratford’s status as the city’s cultural hub, opening ahead of the V&A East, Sadler’s Wells East and CrossRail.

Its sophisticated interiors are the work of Danish designers Space Copenhagen – think muted greys, tactile fabrics and high-quality craftsmanship. On the ground floor, next to the spectacular seven-storey glass atrium, is relaxed all-day eatery The Brasserie, while seven floors up, beside a meadow-inspired garden, is Allegra, a restaurant headed up by former Chiltern Firehouse head chef Patrick Powell. From £199 per night, thestratford.com
