The Kimpton Fitzroy hotel

The Kimpton Fitzroy hotel is a historic Grade II* listed building situated in the heart of Russell Square. It was was one of the first purpose-built hotels in London and originally designed by the renowned architect Charles Fitzroy Doll. Much of the hotel’s lavish interior had also inspired Doll in his designs for the RMS Titanic. The Kimpton Fitzroy Hotel won the Highly Commended category of the Historic England Listed Building Award 2019. The Historic England Listed Building Highly Commended accolade was due to the high-quality accessibility features at the Hotel which accommodates all guests, including those with disabilities, this includes Accessible self-parking, Accessible rooms and restrooms with wide paths and Roll-in showers and a Marble clad Sesame Access wheelchair lift at the front entrance.

Our award-winning Sesame wheelchair access lift was installed at the front entrance, enabling guests to glide effortlessly into and out of the hotel in style. Sesame's innovative wheelchair lift technology has made it a lot more suitable and convenient for people with disabilities that wish to stay at The Kimpton Fitzroy. A visitor that requires wheelchair access was really impressed with Sesames mobility lift. She wrote ‘when we arrived, I thought how on earth am I going to get up those steep steps (IE I was assuming they would put down a ramp, but it was going to be very steep...) But Walter - who was very helpful throughout our stay - pressed a button and half the stairs retracted and turned into a wheelchair lift! So impressed’.

Externally, the building is distinctively covered in decorative which has been extensively cleaned and restored where possible, Sesames wheelchair lift blended impeccably in the existing building decoration which was a key success factor to this project.
