One of the most exciting hotels coming to London is the late-2022-opening Raffles London at The OWO, which is seeing the transformation of The Old War Office Whitehall building.
This five-star, 120-key property, with more than 80 private residences, will stand out for the grandeur of this site and its wealth of lavish amenities, which are to include nine restaurants and bars, a destination spa and selection of boutiques.
Highlights of this property will include a ballroom for events and an inviting rooftop bar. EPR Architects is leading this site’s architectural design and both 1508 London and Thierry W. Despont are working on the interiors.
Another highlight among these forthcoming debuts is the early-2024-opening, new-build art’otel London Hoxton.
The 343-key hotel will occupy a 27-storey cylindrical building designed by Squire and Partners, with five floors of office space and top floors dedicated to facilities including a lounge, bar and destination restaurant, all with impressive views.
The ground-floor entrance will lead to a mezzanine home to the restaurant and a second restaurant, and four separate floors connected to the property will house a gym, pool and sauna.
Reflecting the hotel brand’s connection to art, the hotel’s lower floors will be set aside for gallery space and provide the setting for a rotating calendar of exhibitions, as well as cultural events.
