London to gain major new hotel?

LONDON could have a new and large super luxury hotel if plans by the Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) are fulfilled.  The US State Department has confirmed that it plans to sell its Grosvenor Square Embassy, a Grade II listed building, to QIA who foresee the 600-room property as the most prestigious accommodation in the capital.  But readers should not get too excited.  The Americans will not move out until their proposed Wandsworth legation is actually completed in 2017, and then Grosvenor Square will have a complete rebuild taking 2-3 years.  Both buildings are subject to planning decisions.
