Autograph Collection Hotels has announced the opening of The Dixon in London.
The property joins the diverse and dynamic portfolio of more than 160 independent Autograph Collection Hotels around the world that champion values of vision, design and craft.
Taking centre stage in the heart of Tower Bridge on Tooley Street, The Dixon is set to become a new cultural hub in the midst of a creative neighbourhood, which boasts The Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe and the diverse cultural offering of the new Bridge Theatre all a short distance away.
John Licence, vice president, premium and select brands Europe, Marriott International, said: “We are delighted to expand our offering of one-of-a-kind hotels in London with The Dixon.
“As vibrant, creative and historic as the neighbourhood in which it resides, The Dixon perfectly embodies our values and we’re excited for our guests to experience it.”
A product of passion and a personal realisation of its individual vision, The Dixon was named after John Dixon Butler – the architect who originally constructed the Grade II listed building in 1905 as a Magistrates’ Court and police station – and draws inspiration from the area’s rich cultural heritage, while also capturing its new wave of creative cool.
Advocating for the original through art, The Dixon showcases thoughtfully-curated pieces inspired by the history and talent of SE1 in all of its guest rooms and public spaces.
The architectural restoration, led by Consarc Design Group, has transformed the hotel in uncompromising style.
Rani Ahluwalia, Creative Director at M Studio London, and twenty2degrees have worked closely to bring a stunning interior concept to life that cleverly walks the line between old and new.
The 193 rooms, including ten spacious suites, will redefine the traditional boutique hotel by seamlessly incorporating the locale’s culture through an artful mix of heritage design.
