Four Seasons has announced it will open a luxury hotel in the Ten Trinity Square building overlooking the Tower of London.
The Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square will, once restored, contain 98 guestrooms and suites when it opens in spring 2016.
It will also include 41 private residences – Ten Trinity Square, The Residences at Four Seasons – and a private members’ club.
Each private residence will feature between one and five bedrooms, while both guests and residents will have views over the River Thames.
The Grade II-listed Ten Trinity Square building originally opened in 1922 as the headquarters of the Port of London Authority.
Four Seasons will open the hotel in conjunction with developer Reignwood Group.
It will be the brand’s third hotel in the capital; it currently has properties in Canary Wharf and Mayfair. Plans to open a Heron Plaza hotel in the City (see news, January 2011) have been shelved.
Allen Smith, Four Seasons’ president and CEO, said: “We’re thrilled to be working with Reignwood Group on the transformation of this unique and exquisite London landmark.
“As the city continues to be a destination of choice for the world’s most discerning leisure and business travellers, Ten Trinity Square will be an excellent complement to our two existing hotels at Park Lane and Canary Wharf, and expand our presence in this critically important market.”
This December, the iconic Westcliff Hotel in Johannesburg will reopen under the Four Seasons branding (see news, May 6).
