The Peninsula London will be Peninsula's newest hotel, and its second in Europe, after The Peninsula Paris. It's slated to open in 2021 at 1-5 Grosvenor Place, Hyde Park Corner, which is just a 3 minute walk from the Hyde Park Corner Tube Station (Piccadilly Line). The Belgravia location is very central: right by Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace Gardens, a 10 minute walk from Buckingham Palace, an easy walk to Harrods and other Knightsbridge shopping and dining, and a 25 minute walk to the National Gallery.
The hotel will include 190 guest rooms, restaurants, including a rooftop restaurant on the 8th floor, and spa, as well as several private residences.
While the hotel is still a couple years away, I'm already excited by the prospect of The Peninsula London, as The Peninsula Paris was such a wonderful addition to the highly competitive Paris luxury hotel scene, and I feel that some of London's current centrally located properties could use some competition to spur them to deliver a higher caliber product and service.
There are no photos of the interior just yet, but Peter Marino has been named as the interior designer; he's also one of the designers for the new Cheval Blanc La Samaritaine in Paris.
