Edwardian Hotels London (EHL) has announced that its hotel currently under construction on London’s Leicester Square will be called the Londoner.
The £300m, 350-bedroom property is set to open in 2020 with five concept restaurants and lounges including a rooftop bar, a ballroom for up to 1,000 guests, two new Odeon Luxe cinemas and a subterranean spa.
Iype Abraham, commercial development director at EHL, said: “The Londoner exemplifies Edwardian Hotels London’s bold philosophy. Building a complex and ambitious project in an iconic area is a demonstration of our commitment to London and our ability to deliver high-quality, sustainable, integrated hotels designed for the future.”
Rob Steul, creative director at EHL and lead designer of the Londoner, added: “The Londoner celebrates and captures the drama of its vibrant West End neighbourhood and I am confident that its striking contemporary design, sophisticated social spaces and its collection of distinctive restaurants and lounges will set it apart.”
EHL is working on the project with engineers Arup, developers McGee, interior design team Yabu Pushelberg and architects Woods Bagot.
