Wellesley London gets ready

Pretty well on time (in fact just one month late as featured in BTNews 27 June 2011) the very upmarket Wellesley Hotel Knightsbridge is set to open in December of this year.

The 36-room luxury townhouse style property is nearly opposite Apsley House, the home of the Duke of Wellington, Arthur Wellesley.  It will take on both a contemporary and classic style with interiors created by the award-winning Fox Linton, combining the building’s art deco design of the 1920s with stylish modern additions.  As well as the rooms, The Wellesley will incorporate a Cigar Lounge and Terrace – featuring the UK’s largest bespoke humidor – The Crystal Bar with its whisky and cognac wall, the elegant Oval Restaurant, and a dedicated Jazz Room which is to showcase both established and up-and-coming jazz acts in an intimate atmosphere.

The accommodation is spread over six floors with 27 suites and nine executive doubles.  The penthouse suite has incredible views over Hyde Park, a boardroom, four bedrooms and state-of-the-art technology. www.thewellesley.co.uk
