Taking centre stage in Leicester Square, the world’s first super boutique hotel, The Londoner, has announced that it will officially launch to guests in September 2021. Bringing together a masterclass in hospitality creation, including designers Yabu Pushelberg and leading hotel group Edwardian Hotels London, the property is expected to herald in a new era for Leicester Square, and for London.
So much more than a hotel, The Londoner will offer an ‘urban resort’ destination of the highest architectural quality. Opening across 16 storeys, the hotel will feature 350 guest rooms, suites and a tower penthouse with panoramic views, two private screening rooms, a mix of six concept eateries – including bars and a tavern, al fresco dining on the ground floor and a contemporary Japanese lounge bar with a rooftop terrace and fire pit – plus an expansive ballroom suited for any occasion, a variety of meeting spaces and a results-driven gym and wellness centre.
Boutique in feeling yet staggering in scale, the launch of The Londoner marks a new era of regeneration for Leicester Square, with further investment being made into the public realm areas by local authorities, and an impressive arts & culture programme launching later this year.
As a brand-new build in the heart of London, The Londoner will employ pioneering methods of sustainable luxury and secured a £175 million Green Loan from HSBC UK. The funding will be used to ensure the new hotel doesn’t just meet but exceeds the BREEAM Excellent category in building environmental and sustainable performance.
