A new luxury hotel set in a restored Georgian terrace dating back to the early 1800s will open in the City of London in 2020.
Forming part of the highly-anticipated One Crown Place mixed-use development in EC2, Bespoke Hotels has been appointed to operate 41 bedrooms at the property in Sun Street, under the management of AlloyMtd and CBRE.
Launching in early 2020 with premier double rooms starting from £295 per night, the hotel spans five floors across six Georgian townhouses which were designed by one of the most influential and talented architects of the 18th century, George Dance the Younger.
With ambitions to join a select group of five-star hotels in the city, the hotel will combine a 100-cover destination restaurant and bar alongside a private members’ club.
Design is being directed by Bowler James Brindley, a renowned interiors business behind some of London’s most luxurious residential developments, together with high end global hotels and restaurants including Asia De Cuba in Abu Dhabi.
Each of the six townhouses has a unique personality and the ground floor communal areas are interlinked by a series of rooms, including a public-facing deli, social café, art gallery in the lobby with a reception parlour for a relaxed check-in, a club lounge with a bar and an adjoining library room.
“We are delighted to have been appointed to oversee the operation of the hotel at One Crown Place,” commented Haydn Fentum, chief executive of Bespoke Hotels.
“The development will be a stunning landmark for London, further galvanising an area that has developed remarkably in recent years, with the hotel a key ingredient within this.”
The hotel, the name of which will be unveiled later this year, will sit alongside One Crown Place’s striking terracotta-clad residential towers containing 246 luxury apartments and 140,000 sq ft of premium office space.
Public spaces and apartments at One Crown Place have been designed by Bowler James Brindley and Sophie Ashby’s Studio Ashby.
Studio Ashby has designed the development’s nine penthouses, which launched late last year.
Residential sales of the South Tower will be released to the public in March.
