The Pullman Artnight saw two of the hotel's rooms transformed into "Art Rooms" - created by French photographer Carole Bellaiche and London-based portrait sculptor James A Matthews - and a pop-up gallery by Nigerian photographer George Osodi in the lower lounge.

Situated minutes from King's Cross and St Pancras stations, the hotel features 312 bedrooms, the Golden Arrow restaurant and bar, which has panoramic views of the London Skyline, as well as 17 event and meeting spaces, including a 446-seat tiered theatre for arts and corporate use.

Meeting spaces include the globel hotel brand's first "Business Playground" - a meeting room designed by Mathieu Lehanneur that features a meeting table designed like a poker table and is intended to "stimulate creativity".

The Business Playground also features free Wi-Fi, a 75" plasma screen and iPad control for the lighting, sound and visual environment; the concept will be rolled out across the Pullman hotel network from 2014.
