Sleep 2013 opens today and last night, as the official partner of
the The European Hotel Design Awards,  an awards ceremony celebrated exceptional hotel design and architecture, honouring the work of industry leading architects and designers, and the projects they create with hotel developers, owners and operators.

The shortlisted entries (the Wellesley hotel reviewed and ‘dissected’ by A-Gent of Style in part 1 & part 2 was nominated in an impressive three categories) were chosen by an expert panel of judges across thirteen categories.

The winners were announced at the glittering awards ceremony at Park Plaza Westminster Bridge night presented by broadcaster Lauren Laverne and A-Gent of Style was present at the  glitzy 1920s-themed gala, burgundy velvet smoking jacket in tow amongst the 900-odd guests.

Despite having had little sleep last night, A-Gent of Style is still on the pulse this morning to reveal the winners for each category. Of course, if you were following me on Twitter last night, you already know the outcome by now.

And the winners are (drum roll):

All will be revealed in the next few days. Don’t go away!
