Set to open its doors in 2021 and taking centre stage on London’s Leicester Square, The Londoner not only places guests in the world’s first super boutique hotel, but also at the heart of the West End theatreland.
Edwardian Hotels London’s latest project, The Londoner, boutique in feeling yet staggering in scale, is set to transform the city’s hotel landscape and hospitality scene. In excess of £300 million of investment, Edwardian Hotels London continues to be prolific in the hospitality space by delivering the world’s first ‘Super Boutique’ hotel, solidifying the new property as an icon in London’s luxury hospitality scene.
The hotel will open across 16 storeys with 350 guest rooms, suites and a tower penthouse with panoramic views, two private screening rooms, a mix of six concept eateries - including bars and a tavern, alfresco dining on the ground floor and a contemporary Japanese lounge bar with a rooftop terrace and fire pit - plus an expansive ballroom suited for any occasion, a variety of meeting spaces and a results-driven gym and spa.
Its contemporary aesthetic crafted by Yabu Pushelberg, the world-renowned designers behind the Four Seasons hotel in Downtown Manhattan New York, Jean George’s The Fulton and luxury retailer Lane Crawford’s 150,000-square-foot Shanghai flagship, will complement the remarkable 16-storey architecture by Woods Bagot, known for the sky-high New York Manhattan restaurant and the Adelaide Contemporary.
On the rooftop, a new destination for discerning Londoners, with open air firepit seating can be found - a true rarity in London. Additionally, a tavern on the ground floor will offer a specially curated drinks menu and daily unplugged music performances. The hotel’s 350 guestrooms and suites will feature floor to ceiling windows, fastidious detailing and finishing’s offset by curated artworks and the latest technology.
As a brand-new build in the heart of London, The Londoner will employ pioneering methods of sustainable luxury and secured a £175 million Green Loan from HSBC UK, a first for the hospitality sector. The funding will be used to ensure the new hotel doesn’t just meet but exceeds the BREEAM Excellent category in building environmental and sustainable performance.
A member of the prestigious Preferred Hotels & Resorts Legend Collection and promising London a new landmark and city destination, The Londoner will deliver the very best in intimate luxury, offering the capital a new urban oasis and the most sophisticated playground.
