On Wednesday night, hotel lovers of the world came together to celebrate the fifth annual Mr & Mrs Smith Hotel Awards. Guests gathered at London’s skyline-spying Store Studios at 180 The Strand as we unveiled the very best of the very best in all things boutique travel.

Our judges, hoteliers, journalists and travel-industry tastemakers mingled; cocktails were clinked, corks were popped and prizes were given before the 2 Bears’ Raf Daddy took to the decks (housed in a perspex box dubbed the Fun Palace, no less) for two hours of top-drawer tunes. 


As for the winners of the night, they were announced – as per tradition – by the original Mr & Mrs Smith, James and Tamara Lohan – you’ll find the full list below. (And should you ever want song to encapsulate each category, we’ve thrown in a playlist, too.) So thanks to the magnificent venue, to everyone who helped, everyone who came, everyone who judged and, most importantly, everyone who voted. We’ll see you next year (we’ve got some big plans…)
