Morgans reveals location of London Hudson

UK: Morgans Hotel Group has announced that its newest Hudson property will be located on Great Scotland Yard in St. James’s, London.

The Hudson London deal was officially announced in June, but the location of the project has been unconfirmed until now. Hudson London marks “the beginning of Morgans Hotel Group’s plan to introduce the brand into gateway markets around the globe”.

The 234-room property is situated in a 102-year-old Edwardian building, formerly inhabited by the Ministry of Defence. The building was used for recruitment of the British armed forces until it was converted into a public records library in the 1980s.

The hotel will be promoting the concept of lobby as social hub, and its public spaces will include a new restaurant on the ground floor, a 40-seat library lounge and a flexible boardroom space that can be used for business meetings and private events.

Raman Thukral, director of Sansar Investments, which owns the property, said: “We are excited to work with Morgans Hotel Group and their team to bring the second Hudson to the London market. We could not envision a better partner to collaborate with, and are already exploring future opportunities with Morgans Hotel Group’s development team.”

Hudson London at Great Scotland Yard is Morgans Hotel Group‘s fourth property in London, joining the Sanderson and St Martins Lane properties, and Mondrian London at Sea Containers House, set to open in early 2014.
