Even though our Europe trip was intended to be a vacation, I didn’t leave my laptop at home. As a creative entrepreneur, it’s hard to take time off, and I am always looking for super fun hotels that cater to business needs. But business hotels can be blah, boring, and corporate – aka not a good fit for me! So when I found out about citizenM, I was so excited to stay in their bright, colorful, and smart rooms when we visited London and Paris!
In London, we rolled up to the citizenM Shoreditch and were delighted by colorful lounge chairs, and a stunning spiral staircase leading to the check-in floor. The citizenM Paris Gare De Lyon had a similar impact with stunning, spinning, sculptures hanging from the ceiling! They definitely know how to make a good first impression.
Both properties had seamless self check-in experiences, and the coolest smart rooms controlled by an iPad! They are also perfect for design-lovers featuring a consistent color palette, and fun elements like balloon dog sculptures, union jack throw pillows, and murals painted on the walls and even the ceilings! Click through to see photos of the properties and my list of the top features. You can also tune into our city VLOGS below to see video tours of the spaces.
- Fast wifi (fine for uploading photos, even!)
- iPad controlled smart rooms (lighting, window blinds, a/c…everything)
- Free movies (we watched Finding Dory!)
- Self check-in (so. easy.)
- Free water daily (seems small, but is so appreciated after a long travel day)
