Boutique hotel in Whitechapel enlists houseplant experts to lend their green thumb to the hotel’s interiors and create a new kind of hotel experience.

Botanical stylists The Joy of Plants has brought their magic touch to London’s Leman Locke hotel in Whitechapel.

We find out more about this verdant intervention.

Plants and joy

Houseplants are now a firm fixture of many domestic environments, and a boutique hotel in London’s Whitechapel is looking to channel this calming energy.

Leman Locke hotel has enlisted biophilic designers The Joy of Plants to bestow their botanical know-how onto three of the hotel’s guest rooms.

The partnership between the plant experts and the hospitality organisation has resulted in the “junglefication” of rooms 1, 2 and 3, all of which have been given over to the theme of green. The idea is that guests will feel more at home in this tranquil setting, surrounded by a serene sea of green.

Leman Locke’s progressive sustainability

An oasis of plant life isn’t the only experiment being explored at Leman Locke. The hotel employs several sustainable and eco-friendly practices and features that set it apart from other properties in the city.

Room 1 offers guests CBD-infused drinks and plant-based snacks to help business travellers focus. Room 2, meanwhile, serves up cocktails that double as aphrodisiacs, to be enjoyed behind the privacy of a planted canopy, and Room 3 is all about rest and relaxation, with voluminous plants creating a dense and cosy environment designed to help guests sleep deeply.

The hotel’s restaurant and bar also serve seasonal, organic food and locally brewed craft beer, a perfect complement to the biospheres inside the rooms.
