The Hotel Russell is a four star hotel, located on Russell Square, Bloomsbury, London, owned and operated by the Principal Hayley Group.
The Hotel Russell was built in 1898 by the architect, Charles Fitzroy Doll. It is distinctively clad in decorative thé-au-lait ("tea with milk") terracotta, and was based on the Château de Madrid on the Bois de Boulogne in Paris. The hotel's restaurant, which is named after the architect, is said to be almost identical to the RMS Titanic's dining room which he also designed.
A sister hotel by the same architect, the Imperial Hotel, was also built on Russell Square but was demolished. Postcard images of the demolished Imperial Hotel are viewable via Google Images with the terms "Imperial Hotel" and "London."
The life-size statues of four British Queens above the main entrance were the work of sculptor Henry Charles Fehr.
