I recently had the opportunity to stay over at the IBIS in Shoreditch, I love the idea of staying over night in a hotel in my home city. The IBIS it's self is easily accessible from Whitechapel underground station. The night was all about music and mingling, IBIS had started it's lates on tour which involved roundhouse resident artists performing live in IBIS hotels across the country. It was a wonderful thought as most events I travel to the journey home is often tiring and cold in the winter months, but knowing that my room was just a lift ride away on the 7th floor it was safe to say I was happy enjoying the nights performance without the stress of a train journey across London late at night.
The artists performing on the night were a wonderful mix of Jazz, gospel and R&B, with the likes of Jay Johnson, Soma, Estee Blu and Nikita Chauhan playing some wonderful original music. The performances were fab at it was really nice to listen to up and coming talent, and it's great to see IBIS giving them such a great platform for all types of people to see their talent and hear their music.
My hotel room itself was basic but comfortable I enjoyed the cabin style bathrooms and I enjoyed the chocolates that were lovingly left in my room I'm a sucker for the small details, the room itself was comfortably sized or two people and I indulged in the exclusive SweetBed mattress that was in my room, after a long day of shooting and getting tattooed it was perfect.
