Luxury hotel set for One Crown Place development

A new, Bespoke-operated luxury hotel is set to open at the One Crown Place development in 2020.

The 41-room boutique hotel will be set in a restored Georgian terrace in the City of London mixed-use development on Sun Street, near Liverpool Street. Bespoke Hotels has been appointed by AlloyMtd Group, a Kuala Lumpur-headquartered infrastructure development company, to operate the hotel.

The hotel will span five floors across six Georgian townhouses which were designed by architect George Dance the Younger in the 18th century, and will feature a 100-cover restaurant as well as a bar and private members’ club. Design is being directed by Bowler James Brindley.

Each of the six townhouses will have their own “personality” and the ground floor communal areas will be interlinked by a series of rooms, including a public-facing deli, café, art gallery/lobby, a club lounge with a bar and an adjoining library room.

The interiors will feature a rich colour palette reminiscent of the Georgian period, and bedrooms will be “opulent but cosy”, with ornate detailing, patterned wallpapers and natural woods.

Premier double rooms will start from £295 per night and the name of the hotel will be unveiled later this year.

Haydn Fentum, chief executive of Bespoke Hotels, said: “The development will be a stunning landmark for London, further galvanising an area that has developed remarkably in recent years.”

Ian Bayliss, co-founder of Bowler James Brindley, added: “The buildings have become a landmark for the area, so it has been a pleasure to be involved in restoring and bringing them back to their former glory.”

The hotel will sit alongside terracotta-clad residential towers containing 246 luxury apartments and 140,000 sq ft of office space.

Public spaces and apartments at One Crown Place have been designed by Bowler James Brindley and Studio Ashby.
