The Londoner will feature 350 rooms and 15 suites; five concept restaurants and lounges including a rooftop bar; state-of-the-art ballroom for up to 1000 guests, two new Odeon Luxe cinemas and a subterranean spa.
Iype Abraham, commercial development director at Edwardian Hotels London, said: “The Londoner exemplifies Edwardian Hotels London’s bold philosophy. Building a complex and ambitious project in an iconic area is a demonstration of our commitment to London and our ability to deliver high-quality, sustainable, integrated hotels designed for the future. We are privileged to play a pivotal role in the regeneration of Leicester Square and contribute to the evolving skyline of London.”
Rob Steul, creative director at Edwardian Hotels London and lead designer of The Londoner, added: “It has always been the vision of our chairman to develop a lifestyle hotel destination in a prime central London location and I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to bring this aspirational vision to life; from conceptualising the original design through to overseeing the development and delivery of the hotel.
“The Londoner celebrates and captures the drama of its vibrant West End neighbourhood and I am confident that its striking contemporary design, sophisticated social spaces and its collection of distinctive restaurants and lounges will set it apart.”
Edwardian Hotels London has partnered with project engineers Arup, project developers McGee, interior design team Yabu Pushelberg and project architects Woods Bagot to build The Londoner.
