Iíve been waiting for this one for a while. Itís either going to be amazing or a disaster. Itís such a historically significant building to Londoners, but not the easiest place to make a luxury hotel out of, Iíd expect.

Hhonors Diamond members should get access to Number 10 Downing St as a lounge via the secret tunnels

Indeed, not breaking the news on the hotel coming to the UK, rather on the update that was posted by the BBC AFAIK on the 23rd June 2019 on its 10 o'clock evening news (but not available it seems via bbc or google anywhere except for the hotel's own facebook page)...for those on FB, you can watch the video from the BBC by searching for video "718701371866641 admiralty arch" in FB "watch" and you'll find it...

hope it helps others see the news piece and that the info helps!

There was an older (2012) BBC news story that is available on the general web here:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-pol...a-luxury-hotel

As has already been linked to, there is a general website for the hotel group and news but it doesn't seem to share all the news that they post on their FB page...

Safe travels everyone.

EDIT: why is it so hard to link to this...all FT shows is blank fields...competitive interests or am I breaking a rule somehow?
