As well as the environmental advantages of train travel, there is a sentimentality and unique sense of adventure that accompanies that hypnotic clickety-clack of the tracks. For those looking for a quick European jaunt, rail is the quickest and most convenient way to journey between many existing and upcoming Hox locations including London, Paris, Amsterdam, and Brussels. Stateside, Hox guests embarking on the epic West Coast route between L.A. and Portland are rewarded with a veritable smorgasbord of natural wonders right outside the carriage window including vast forests, lush valleys, and snow- capped mountain ranges, while the recent resurgence of European sleeper trains brings with it a slice of those golden-hued, vintage slow-travel vibes.
The Good Rate marks the latest step in The Hoxton’s ongoing commitment to doing right by its guests, neighbours, people and planet, and forms part of a wider sustainability and social responsibility programme collectively known as The Good Stuff. This is a collection of everything Hox is doing to help make the world a better place, whether it’s by championing Good Actions such as eliminating single-use plastics or using repurposed materials and upcycled furniture, or being a Good Neighbour to the hotels’ local communities by providing meaningful, long-term support to neighbourhood projects, charities, and shelters.
