Portland stone clad 5-star hotel in the City of Westminster that contains 157 rooms and a rooftop bar

The hotel replaces a 1950s building with the neighbouring Edwardian Marconi House, built in 1904 converted into an 87-unit apartment complex.

A large restaurant is situated on the ground floor with the reception placed on the first floor within the volume of a nine-storey-high pyramid, which is clad in white marble, and naturally lit from above.

The hotels 157 rooms are arranged around this internal volume with the largest suites placed on the upper levels, the grandest of these. The duplex ‘Suite ME’ on the ninth and tenth floors, has a glazed outlook at the top of the corner tower with panoramic views. There is a rooftop bar on the top floor.

The hotels elevations are constructed of load-bearing Portland stone with the entrance placed in the corner tower.
