A month from now a brand new hotel will be unveiled in the area. Not just any old hotel at that either, for the Eccleston Square Hotel is set to become Europe's most high-tech hotel.

Designed by renowned architects Woods Bagot, the 39-bedroom hotel will offer visitors an experience unlike any other. The bedrooms come fully equipped with 46 inch 3D LED TVs, HD Movie and 3D channels, 3D Blu Ray DVD players, free mega-fast Wi-Fi, free London calls and worldwide VoIP calls at a cost.
As if that wasn't enough each bedroom will also have its own iPad2 (the first in Europe to do so and the second in the world), which allows people to request room service, reserve their spot in the spa and much more. A fingertip pad that controls the lighting, curtains, TV, soundtracks and electronic wake-up calls is also set-up inside every room.
The "world's best beds" have been sourced for the rooms too, coming from Hästens, top Swedish manufacturers. The each cost £12,000 and offer functions such as relaxing massages.
The technology doesn't stop at the bathrooms either. The walls are 'smart glass', meaning they can be turned opaque at the touch of a button. There's also a TV installed into heated, steam-proof mirrors. Relaxation is at its most ultimate with features such as a rainfall shower, high-pressure massage heads and aromatherapy products such as L'Occitane essential oils.
Bistro On The Square, the 49-seater hotel restaurant, is open seven-days a week and offers French-bistro style lunch and dinner menus and American brunch on the weekends.
If this has suitably whetted all your appetites then the only other thing you need to know is that the Eccleston Square Hotel officially opens on 4 July.
