City of London's latest new hotel announced

The explosion of hotel openings in the City of London is set to continue with the announcement that a 92-bedroom hotel is to launch, near Cannon Street tube station, in early 2018.

Vintry & Mercer is being developed on a site previously occupied by two recently demolished buildings. Anton Fedun, who is a director of the hotel's owner, FR Holdings, is also a director of Alfa Holdings, which owns the 111-bedroom Ampersand hotel in Kensington, west London.

Located in the historic Vintry ward, the hotel is named after two of the City's historic guilds: vinters, who traded fine wines, and mercers, who sold fine silks, Both trades will be reflected in the hotel's design.

Vintry & Mercer will feature three food and beverage outlets: Vintry Kitchen, which will serve Mediterranean food; Mercer Terrace; and DND, (Do Not Disturb), an underground cocktail bar.

There will also be a gym, breakout area with computers and three private event rooms.

So far in 2017, the City of London has seen three major hotel openings: the 252-bedroom the Ned, with nine restaurants; Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square (100 bedrooms); Dorsett City (276 bedrooms).

And in nearby Shoreditch, Nobu Hotel Shoreditch (143 bedrooms) and the Curtain (120 bedrooms), have launched in recent weeks.
