This Festive Season, Hotel Stripes takes you to the gateway of London’s West End, into the heart of Bloomsbury, where the newest addition to YTL Hotels – The Academy Hotel London – is famously located. Engage in a blend of modern and vintage touches at Brasserie 25 with a nod to the lives and loves of the Bloomsbury Set – the collection of writers and intellectuals comprising Virginia Woolf, John Maynard Keynes, E.
