The hottest hotel launch in London this year is confirmed to open its doors to guests in September 2021. The much anticipated debut of The Londoner marks the beginning of a rebirth for Leicester Square and the introduction of the world’s first super boutique hotel.

From one of the UK’s largest family-owned hotel group Edwardian Hotels London, The Londoner is set to amaze both Londoners and the city’s international guests with a staggering 350 rooms, 16 storeys, six concept eateries, a unique members club-style private area, a wealth of meeting and event space, cinema and an entire floor dedicated to wellness. Designed in collaboration with world-renowned architectural designers Yabu Pushelberg, the opening of The Londoner marks a pivotal moment in the return and scale of global hospitality.

The Londoner is designed to capture the character of London itself, with winks and nods at every turn to British humour – flourishes ironically expected to appeal to both Londoners as well as international guests. Whilst super in scale, The Londoner’s boutique approach and commitment to hospitality offers an experience designed to make guests feel at home. From the opulent 200sqm Tower Penthouse duplex suite to the expansive Trafalgar Suites – covering 119 square metres and offering impressive living areas, kitchenette and foyer – The Londoner offers the highest levels of luxury for those looking to entertain and impress. Stylistically focussed on traditional British sensibility and a minimal neutral palette, guestrooms at The Londoner seamlessly blend pleasure, style and business with floor to ceiling windows, fastidious detailing and the latest technology.

Both the guestrooms and public areas of the hotel are home to an expertly curated roster of art pieces, breathing life and character into the hotel. The art collection throughout is a mixture of price points, mediums and genres and includes classic and contemporary pieces and those from emerging designers.

Prioritising guest experience above all else, The Londoner uniquely offers its guests round the clock access to its own private members club style space, The Residence. The 24-hour club, strictly for guests only, is hidden from the happenings of the wider hotel and features an exclusive collection of discrete spaces for relaxing, working and indulging.

For intimate dining, The Residence’s Y Bar and The Drawing Room offers an à la carte menu and a curated reserve wine list, complemented by signature house cocktails. Guests will also be able to experience The Whisky Room, where a secret passage reveals an intimate 14-cover parlour, for guests to explore the world of whisky including the rare, renowned and the yet-to-be-discovered. Guests can also enjoy complimentary items from the moving Residence Cart – offering fresh breakfast delicacies in the morning and followed by Mediterranean antipasti.

As well as offerings exclusively for hotel guests, The Londoner features several F&B concepts open to the public that honour and re-shape the legacy of the West End, all created by Amir Jati, Creative Director of Food & Beverage Service Excellence at Edwardian Hotels London. With over ten years experience leading Nobu’s global private dining and events team, Amir oversees all of the creative direction and operations across The Londoner’s food and beverage outlets.

Located atop The Londoner with a breathtaking view of the city is its decadent rooftop izakaya lounge8 at The Londoner. Presenting a palette of world-class modern Japanese cuisine, innovative mixology, and dramatic design, 8 at The Londoner is timeless yet contemporary, and will showcase a blend of the finest ingredients and expert traditional techniques, creating a sophisticated experience above the capital’s most iconic neighbourhood.

A convergence of wellness, physical fitness, and results-driven therapies, The Retreat will be The Londoner’s complete ecosystem for wellness. The Retreat merges best-in-class fitness, nutrition and nourishing therapies with other wellness practices, bringing a completely new style of holistic retreat and wellness destination to the West End. Conceived as a place where individuals can integrate health, wellbeing and the enjoyment of a luxury experience, The Retreat gives hotel guests and members a curated edit of tools so that they can look and feel their best: a private training gym, fitness classrooms for innovative weekly programming, 25m pool, barber, blow dry bar, nail bar and other modalities to offer a holistic approach to wellbeing.
