Westminster to welcome first new London InterContinental Hotel in 36 years

Arriving on London’s exciting hotel scene in November 2012, the much-anticipated InterContinental London Westminster will open its doors in the political heartland of Britain.

The first InterContinental hotel to open in London for over 36 years, the property is located at an outstanding address; a short walk from Parliament, in earshot of Big Ben and within sight of Westminster Abbey.

The hotel will inject a new lease of life into Queen Anne’s Chambers, a former government building, which played host to the Treasury Solicitor and The Brewers’ Society among others during its century’s long history.

Behind its townhouse style exterior, the hotel’s elegant interiors marry rich furnishings and British finesse to create an intimate sanctuary at the centre of Westminster’s urban revival.

Spread across six floors it will feature 256 beautifully designed rooms including 44 luxurious suites and an imposing penthouse.

Blue Boar Smokehouse & Bar will sit at the heart of the hotel’s food and drink offering.

The Bar will bring a sense of sophistication to the traditional British pub, offering carefully selected local ales, classic cocktails, and British wines, while the restaurant is set to be a buzzing destination to meet for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Dark wood panelling and warm tones will nod to the traditional members clubs of London.

InterContinental London Westminster joins InterContinental London Park Lane as the second InterContinental property in London.
