Edwardian Hotels has unveiled the name of its forthcoming Leicester Square property, which is due to open in 2020.
The Londoner will form part of the redeveloped Odeon West End site, plans for which were originally reported by Business Traveller back in 2012.
The five-star hotel will feature 350 rooms, five restaurants and lounges including a rooftop bar, a ballroom for up to 1,000 guests, and a subterranean spa.
The redeveloped site will also incorporate two new Odeon Luxe cinemas.
Commenting on the news Rob Steul, Creative Director at Edwardian Hotels London and lead designer of The Londoner, said:
“It has always been the vision of our Chairman to develop a lifestyle hotel destination in a prime central London location and I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to bring this aspirational vision to life; from conceptualising the original design through to overseeing the development and delivery of the hotel.
“The Londoner celebrates and captures the drama of its vibrant West End neighbourhood and I am confident that its striking contemporary design, sophisticated social spaces and its collection of distinctive restaurants and lounges will set it apart.”
The Londoner will be the latest in a raft of hotels to open on and around Leicester Square, including Hotel Indigo London – 1 Leicester Square which opened in May, and Victory House, London Leicester Square, MGallery by Sofitel, which opened in 2017.
