The Peninsula London opens in September between Park Lane and The Lanesborough

If you’ve been anywhere near that point where Hyde Park Corner meets Wellington Arch, you’ll have spotted the rather impressive construction site. Well, not for much longer: the Peninsula London is just a few weeks from opening.

This newly-built hotel has been designed and appointed to embody the finest British craftsmanship and launches from 12 September 2023 with a special offer including daily breakfast for two, Peninsula Time, offering flexible check-in and check-out times, use of a House car and complimentary airport pick-up for all suite reservations.

“We are delighted to launch The Peninsula London, which is the culmination of decades of looking for the most exceptional location in London,” says Clement Kwok, Managing Director and CEO of The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited, owner and operator of The Peninsula. “We believe that the investment we have made into this project, the dedication of our people and the project teams we have worked with, and the quality and the attention to detail that we have strived for, will make this a unique hotel that we believe will stand out not only in London but globally, and will be one of the most important hotels in our group for generations to come.”

The hotel – plus 25 opulent luxury residences – centres around an expansive, off-street courtyard, landscaped in the style of a classic English garden, together with ivy, wisteria and 120-year-old Japanese maples. The guest rooms and suites – 190 in total – feature bespoke furnishings, textiles, and artworks, mahogany-panelled dressing rooms, exquisite bathrooms of honey onyx, and customised fittings crafted by renowned British artisans; many have floor-to ceiling-windows with unparalleled views over Wellington Arch and historic Belgravia. 

Elsewhere expect a ballroom (with back-of-house elevators large enough for motorcars), conference rooms, a private cinema, a signature rooftop restaurant, Brooklands, from Michelin-starred Chef Director Claude Bosi, a tasting lounge and cigar storage helmed by Manu Harit, certified “Master of Havana Cigars,” and a spa complete with 25m indoor pool.
