    HOTEL

    HERE TO S TAY

    Stop press! The InterContinental Hotel is no more! But dont

    worry its only been renamed. Known henceforth as the Conrad London St. James, it will continue to offer its

    unique brand of luxury, serve some of the finest food in the area and act as a home from home for discerning guests

    looking to base themselves in the heart of the capital.

    You may well have noticed that a host of the fashion industrys biggest names have relocated their headquarters to Victoria recently, and it s a trend that shows no sign of slowing down. Spanish brand Mango the latest addition to the areas stylish portfolio will open a f lagship store in The Zig Zag Building in spring 2015 and present its womens and childrens collections within a 9,000sq ft two-storey space. Mango already has 23 stores worldwide, but with so many other chic retailers down the street, Victoria will make a great new home.
