Inverness Court Hotel, 1-9 Inverness Terrace, London W2 3JL, built early 1900s and recently become the Clarion Shaftesbury Hyde Park:

"The ornate Inverness Court Hotel is a former private house, remodelled, with its own theatre, for Louis Spitzel (d. 1906) by Mewès & Davis, architects of the Ritz. The hotel is located in a quiet residential street in the Bayswater area, only a short walk to Hyde Park, one minute from Queensway underground station and convenient for shopping in the Bayswater area. The rooms are small; the simply decorated bathrooms are small and in fair condition. The building is traditional with a turn of the century facade in fair condition. An interesting feature is the stained glass bay window on the ground floor and the entrance is through an antique heavy wooden porch. The lobby is small, decorated with original hard wood paneling dating back before the 1800's, this gives the lobby and lounge area a warm, historic and traditional atmosphere."
