A ground-breaking ceremony has taken place for the Peninsula London in Belgravia as plans for what is being promised to become one of the finest hotels in the world take shape. It will have 190 rooms.
The ceremony by the Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels (HSH) group was attended by the Duke of Westminster as guest of honour and hosted by HSH chairman Sir Michael Kadoorie.
Sir Michael said: “This is an important day for our group. We were most pleased, after many decades of searching, to have found such a magnificent location for the Peninsula London hotel and residences.
“It is our vision that the hotel will be recognised as one of the finest in the world as we welcome international guests and showcase the best of British culture, design, art and cuisine combined with traditional warm Asian hospitality.”
HSH CEO and managing director Clement Kwok added: “The HSH philosophy is to focus our business on a small number of hotels in the most prime locations in major international gateway cities.
“The Peninsula London hotel and residences, overlooking Hyde Park Corner and the Wellington Arch, will set new standards in luxury and service and we believe they will be the finest in the London market when complete.”
