The Lalit London

Open January 2017

181 Tooley Street, Bankside, London, SE1 2JR

Tube: London Bridge Station

 
 

Located in the building that originally housed St Olave's Grammar School (where novelist Lawrence Durrell was a pupil) The Lalit London replaces classrooms with bedrooms and books with cocktails. The first overseas property for the India-based Lalit Group, the beautiful Victorian building, originally designed by Edward Mountford, architect of the Old Bailey, has been transformed into a 70-room luxury hotel with a gym, spa and interiors by Archer Humphryes (Chiltern Firehouse). Almost all of the rooms are different and those on the top floor come with 30-foot high ceilings. In place of the Governors' Room, all panelled walls and elaborate plaster ceiling, you'll find a cocktail bar and at the centre of it all is pan Indian restaurant, Baluchi, in the former Great Hall, where original timber panelling, vaulted ceiling and gallery have been sympathetically restored. Thankfully, being sent to the headmaster's office is more appealing than it was 50 years ago - the head's old HQ has become a luxury suite.

 
 
 

Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square

Open 26th January 2017

10 Trinity Square, Clerkenwell, London, EC3P 3AX

Tube: Chancery Lane Station

 
 

One of the most iconic buildings in the City of London, Ten Trinity Square, is to be sympathetically transformed into a luxury Four Seasons hotel, in early 2017. The landmark grade II* listed building, originally the headquarters of the Port of London Authority, opened in 1922 to a design by well known architect Sir Edwin Cooper. The hotel - the third Four Seasons Hotel London (adding to the two existing hotels at Park Lane and Canary Wharf) - occupies the lower ground to the third levels, with 100 guest rooms and suites, two restaurants, bars, meeting salons and spa. The restaurants include La Dame de Pic from acclaimed three Michelin-starred French chef Anne-Sophie Pic, and a second flagship Asian restaurant serving contemporary Japanese and Chinese cuisine, open later in 2017. The Rotunda, which sits at the heart of the hotel, houses a bar and all-day dining room under the original domed ceiling - beautifully restored after heavy bombing during World War II. The project also includes 41 luxury residences on the five floors above and a private club with a wine store and Chateau Latour Room. Occupying a prominent location overlooking the Tower Of London and with views of the River Thames, the opening of the hotel is one of the most exciting building projects in the City.

 
 
 

Henrietta Hotel

Open April 2017

14-15 Henrietta Street, London, WC2E 8QH

Tube: Covent Garden Station , Charing Cross Station, Leicester Square Station, Embankment Underground Station

 
 

The team behind the Experimental Cocktail Bar has its first London hotel in the Henrietta, a swish 18-room hotel with an 80-seat r estaurant by Ollie Dabbous, the well known chef behind the Michelin-starred Dabbous and Barnyard. The sumptuous boutique hotel in Covent Garden which f ollows the success of its Parisian sister, the Grand Pigalle Hotel, has interiors by designer Dorothée Meilichzon, responsible for "some of the French capital's hippest addresses" (Vogue). Bedrooms are decorated with handpainted wallpaper, upholstered headboards and marble details. The restaurant, a modern British bistro and bar that's "a chic fusion of ornate Victorian and sleek Art Deco" (Evening Standard) is spread across the ground and first floor of the hotel, serving seasonal dishes, cocktails and wine.

 
 
 

The Ned

Open 1st May 2017

27 Poultry, London, EC2R 8AJ

Tube: Bank Station , Mansion House Station, Cannon Street Station, St. Paul's Station, Monument Station

 
 

The Grade I listed former Midland Bank headquarters in the City of London, originally designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, becomes a new flagship 5-star hotel from the Soho House group in 2017. The Ned hotel gets its name from the eminent architect who designed the building - Ned was Sir Edwin's nickname - and has been redesigned using the faded glamour of a 1930s transatlantic ocean liner as inspiration. Making the most of its historic features, the Portland stone facades will be sympathetically restored and the banking hall's 92 green verdite marble columns and walnut panelling preserved. It's here you'll find seven of the bars and restaurants including an American cafe, a New-York-style deli, Parisian cafe, Grill Room and a branch of Cecconi's, the Soho House favourite. Former directors' and managers' offices on the upper floors, all designed by Lutyens, become 252 suites, restaurants and a rooftop bar with landscaped terraces, health spa and gym. The vast Ned hotel also includes event spaces and a private members' club featuring a rooftop space with swimming pool and an underground bar in what used to be the safety deposit vault underneath the great banking hall.

 
 
 

The Curtain

Open May 2017

45 Curtain Road, London, EC2A 4PJ

Tube: Old Street Station

 
 

A roof top swimming pool, private screening room and the Red Rooster restaurant, an offshoot of Marcus Samuelsson's Harlem restaurant, The Curtain is a corner of Manhattan cool in Shoreditch. Michael Achenbaum, the man responsible for some of New York's most fashionable hotels, brings NYC to London with The Curtain Hotel and Private Members Club, run by his Gansevoort Hotel Group. With a gym designed by Jon Squirrel of The Vault, art curated by gallery owner Steve Lazarides - best known for his role as Banksy's agent - and photography by Mick Rock, The Curtain scores high in the rock 'n' roll stakes. Think Soho House with a New York accent. Seventy million pounds has been spanked on the project and you can see where it's gone. As well as 120 luxury guest rooms, there are six suites, that pool and over 6,000 square feet of meeting and event space. Fork out £900 for membership and you'll get access to a private garden room, luxury spa and live performance space.

 
 
 
 

Nobu Hotel Shoreditch London

Open 21st June 2017

10-50 Willow Street, Shoreditch, London, EC2A 4BH

Tube: Old Street Station

 
 

Following the opening of his first-ever hotel - in Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, in 2013 - master sushi chef Nobu Matsuhisa is planning his first European hotel, the Nobu Hotel in London's Shoreditch. The new hotel, at 10-50 Willow Street, east London, is based on designs originally created by Ron Arad who has since left the project but his successor architect Ben Adams has retained much of the original design. The hotel will house 156 bedrooms and - given Nobu has made his name in creating the finest Japanese cuisine in the world - it's no surprise to hear that there's a statement restaurant: a dramatic five metre high space in the basement. The five story hotel includes its own landscaped garden at the site's eastern edge, staggered with terraces and featuring seating overlooking the generous lower triple height restaurant and bar space. While the exterior makes use of angular concrete balconies and printed, layered glass, the rooms are clustered around a central bathroom screened off by a full-height curved unit.

 
 
 

Great Scotland Yard Hotel

2017

3-5 Great Scotland Yard, Westminster, London, SW1A 2HW

Tube: Charing Cross Station , Embankment Underground Station

 
 

The original Scotland Yard headquarters is being transformed into a luxury hotel where the most expensive rooms cost £10,000 a night. The Edwardian, Grade II-listed site, which was home to Scotland Yard from 1829 until 1890, becomes a £100million hotel with 236 rooms, and restaurant, bar and function facilities. The historic address, which was rebuilt in 1910, was where investigations into the likes of Jack The Ripper were centred, and has featured in the novels of Charles Dickens and Arthur Conan Doyle. The grand seven-storey building has also been used by other Government departments, most recently by the Ministry of Defence as a storage base, and has also featured in the 2007 film 'Atonement' starring Keira Knightley. London developer Galliard Group is working with EPR Architects who designed the back of house areas of the Rosewood - another stunning revival of a Edwardian Belle Epoque building in London. They are doing a sensitive conversion, replacing the 1980s additions while adding new attic storeys and maintaining the principle elements of the original building. Once construction has been completed it will become one of the capital's most expensive hotels.

 
 
 

Belmond Cadogan

2017

75 Sloane Street, Knightsbridge, London, SW1X 9SG

Tube: Knightsbridge Station

 
 

Belmond, the luxury hotel group behind Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons, is backing the £28 million (US$48 million) investment project in The Cadogan, the prestigious hotel on Sloane Street where Lillie Langtry courted the future King of England. Built in 1887 in the Queen Anne style, The Cadogan was also the location of Oscar Wilde's infamous arrest - if only the walls of could talk. Building on this colourful history, the historic property is undergoing a two-year renovation project which reduces the number of rooms and suites from 64 to 54 to accommodate the demands of luxury travellers. Working with Belmond and Blair Associates Architects, Cadogan Estates will fund the redevelopment, which will include the complete refurbishment of all public areas and a gourmet restaurant opening out onto Sloane Street with views of Cadogan Place Gardens. Interior design is by the London office of GA Design International, the firm behind some of the most exclusive hotels and restaurants around the world including the Corinthia Hotel in London.

 
 
 

Dorsett City London

Open September 2017

9 Aldgate High Street, London, EC3N 1AH

Tube: Aldgate Station , Aldgate East Underground Station, Aldgate East Station, Tower Hill Station

 
 

The second London hotel from the Dorsett Hotel group, £21 million is being spent on this 13-storey city hotel next to the 18th century St Botolph Church and above Aldgate tube station. With 267 guest rooms, a restaurant, fitness centre and meeting rooms, on the site of what used to be The Matrix building, the Dorsett City hotel is a stylish 4 star hotel designed by Dexter Moren Associates, architects for the Shangri-La hotel in The Shard. One look at sister hotel, the Dorsett Shepherds Bush, shows the kind of finish and furnishings you can expect at the second London hotel from the group.

 
 
 

Trafalgar St. James

Opens autumn 2017

Trafalgar Square, London, SW1A 2TS

Tube: Charing Cross Station , Piccadilly Circus Station, Leicester Square Station, Embankment Underground Station

 
 

The Trafalgar Square hotel has a major upgrade in 2017 becoming part of the Curio Collection by Hilton and named the Trafalgar St. James, a hotel with an enviable location overlooking the world-famous Trafalgar Square, the very heart of London. The crowning glory, 'The Rooftop', formerly known as Vista, is transformed into a year-round rooftop hotspot for Londoners, featuring a larger space, a Mediterranean style lounge, dining areas and a private glasshouse available to hire, with room to seat 14 people. The hotel's 131 rooms, including 14 suites and two signature suites, offer a chic, urban vibe. Eat in at the all-day restaurant and bar, 1805, serving British inspired food in an intimate but informal atmosphere. Or retire to Biblio, the downstairs private lounge which has a club-like atmosphere and hosts exclusive events including live performances by up-and-coming musicians. Intimate audiences with cultural experts are open to hotel guests and Londoners alike.

 
 
 
 

The Pilgrm Hotel

Open autumn 2017

Norfolk Square, London, W2 PDF

Tube: Paddington Station , Lancaster Gate Station

 
 

Andreas Thrasyvoulou who founded myhotels and Jason Catifeoglou, a former partner at The Zetter Group, are behind The Pilgrm in Paddington where guests check in online before arrival and where parquet extends to the headboards. Here pared back design is a celebration of craftsmanship. With no reception desk or traditional hotel lobby - a neighbourhood cafe serves as the welcome area for guests - it doesn't feel as though you're stepping into a hotel at all but into a very stylish home. The bedrooms come with reclaimed and restored furniture and fittings from 200-year-old mahogany parquet floors to original cast iron radiators, offset by a striking signature Tom Dixon 'cloud carpet'. Organic mattresses handmade in Devon, Egyptian cotton sheets and Marshall speakers help to create a feeling of luxury.

 
 
 

Royal Lancaster London

Open September 2017

Lancaster Terrace, London, W2 2TY

Tube: Lancaster Gate Station , Paddington Station

 
 

In September 2017 the 18-storey Royal Lancaster London - one of the best-known landmarks overlooking Hyde Park - reveals the results of a £80 million renovation, completed in time for the hotel's 50th anniversary. No corner of the hotel has been left untouched. All 411 bedrooms and suites (the best of which have views over Hyde Park) have been upgraded and the lobby has undergone a complete redesign including a series of individual spaces and a bar. The interior design of the suites blends a mid-century aesthetic with the quirkiness of the 1960s, a nod to the swinging era when the hotel originally opened. Welcomed by a dramatic entrance façade, the large curved marble staircase leads up to the first floor - the perfect vantage point to overlook the marble, gold, polished brass and bronze of the lobby below.
