The former Sheraton Belgravia hotel in London is to be rebranded under the luxury Thompson Hotels portfolio from next year.
Located on Chesham Place in the upmarket residential area of Belgravia, the hotel closed its doors for refurbishment on December 31, 2009, and left the Sheraton brand on the same date.
The property is now set to be rebranded under the Thompson Hotels group, joining ten other hotels within the portfolio – five in New York, two in LA, and one each in Washington DC, Chicago and Toronto. A further property is also due to open in the South Korean capital of Seoul in 2012.
The group has yet to officially announce the new project on its website, but a representative has confirmed that the hotel will reopen in 2011 under the Thompson Hotels brand. Businesstraveller.com will be posting more information when it is available, but if existing properties are anything to go by, guests can expect a boutique property, featuring modern design and a destination restaurant.
Thompson LES in New York features “a blend of high end luxury and raw industrial design, complimented by the works of some of America’s most influential artists”, while Thompson Beverley Hill in California offers “a private rooftop bar, a pool lounge embedded with Swarovski diamonds and art installations by photographer Steven Klein”.
