Hong Kong / UK: The Peninsula has announced the debut of its new hotel, The Peninsula London, which is now accepting reservations for stays from 12 September 2023.
The newly-built hotel, situated at the juncture where Hyde Park Corner meets Wellington Arch, is also extending an exclusive stay offer for its first guests. For a limited time, visitors who reserve one of The Peninsula London’s rooms or suites will also be able to enjoy special privileges, including an exclusive opening offer of £1300 including daily breakfast for two; Peninsula Time, offering flexible check-in and check-out times, use of a House car; and complimentary airport pick-up for all suite reservations.
Clement Kwok, managing director and CEO of The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited, owner and operator of The Peninsula, said: “We are delighted to launch The Peninsula London, which is the culmination of decades of looking for the most exceptional location in London. We believe that the investment we have made into this project, the dedication of our people and the project teams we have worked with, and the quality and the attention to detail that we have strived for, will make this a unique hotel that we believe will stand out not only in London but globally, and will be one of the most important hotels in our group for generations to come.
“It is always an important ingredient of The Peninsula that the hotel has been designed and planned not only to service international guests but that it will also become an integral part of the local community. We are very excited to welcome local residents and international visitors to experience this exceptional property and to enjoy The Peninsula’s sophisticated hospitality and service in one of the world’s most dynamic cities,” added Kwok.
The Peninsula London, which includes 25 luxury residences, is within a 15-minute walk of many of London’s iconic attractions, including Buckingham Palace, The Royal Parks, The Palace of Westminster, Harrods and Bond Street.
Its 190 guest rooms and suites feature bespoke furnishings, textiles and artworks, while the floor-to ceiling-windows provide views overlooking Wellington Arch and Belgravia.
A number of special-event venues are due to open later this year, including the pillarless St. George Ballroom and other gathering spaces such as conference rooms and an intimate private cinema.
The Peninsula London will also hold a selection of refined restaurants, bars and lounges, notably signature rooftop restaurant Brooklands, Canton Blue and adjacent bar Little Blue, The Lobby to take in the traditional Peninsula Afternoon Tea and live music, as well as The Peninsula Boutique and Café for more casual dining.
Finally, guests will be able to make use of an array of relaxation and wellbeing choices at the hotel’s Spa and Wellness Centre, from exercise classes and workshops to swimming. A dedicated digital Wellness Portal will provide guests with in-room, round-the-clock access to wellness programming.
