The group has now taken over the day-to-day operation of the 29-bedroom, Grade II listed building, and said it will also provide “strategic management advice” for the hotel in order to “optimise the venue’s profitability”.
Specialising in the management of both branded and independent hotels, the firm’s portfolio spans from limited service hotels through to luxury full-service hotels with conferencing, events, health clubs, spas and restaurants.
Led by hotels managing director, Shezan Aslam, the Black and White team will now manage all elements of the hotel’s operation. Aslam said: “The Lansbury is an iconic building in the infamous canary wharf. We will now work closely with the hotel’s owners to improve its all-round operation, revenue and profitability.”
Chairman and CEO Nick Taplin added: “To add such a major London-based venue to the Black and White portfolio really is a fantastic achievement and we’re naturally delighted to have been brought in to help the owners maximise the hotel’s profitability.
“We work alongside some of the world’s leading brands including the InterContinental Hotels Group, Hilton Worldwide, Wyndham Worldwide and of course Marco Pierre White. The Lansbury is a perfect fit for the expertise we have at Black and White and is not too dissimilar to some of the other properties we currently manage.”
