The hotel, which will showcase the best of British culture, art, and cuisine as well as The Peninsula’s peerless hospitality, is located at one of the city’s most prestigious addresses. The architecture and design of the completed hotel will reflect the distinctive heritage and grandeur of Belgravia. A stately entrance and colonnaded courtyard lobby will greet arriving guests, as will 190 exquisitely styled guest rooms and suites.
Destination restaurants will tempt visitors to taste new dishes and savour familiar fare; The Peninsula Spa will provide revitalising wellness and beauty treatments; and a grand ballroom will play host to London’s most glamorous events.
“This is an exciting opportunity to shape a very special corner of London. For over 300 years Grosvenor has carefully curated its London estate in Mayfair and Belgravia and The Peninsula London is another important step in our journey. This high-quality development is sensitive to its surroundings, sustainable and will support around 2,800 jobs in the wider economy. It will enhance the West End’s reputation as one of the world’s foremost places to visit and a driving force for the UK economy.” commented Peter Vernon , Chief Executive Officer of Grosvenor Britain & Ireland.
The Peninsula London also features a one-storey shopping arcade, with a total of nine retail shops providing over 1,100 sq m shopping spaces to all discerning style seekers. The Peninsula Arcades around the globe house many international luxury brands, offering exquisite luxury shopping with unparalleled hotel experiences.
The proposed building also includes 25 residential apartments with a separate leisure and spa facility, reception and entrance on Halkin Street. Plans include improved public realm in Grosvenor Place, Halkin Street and Grosvenor Crescent, with easier road crossings, wider footpaths and new trees planted along Halkin Street and Grosvenor Crescent.
