The Langley - Luxury Collection, Iver Heath, United Kingdom [Master Thread]
 
Just noticed this one when searching for a hotel room in London on the SPG App and there doesn't appear to be a thread for it currently.

Scheduled for opening in June 2018, will be owned and managed by the same company as The Wellesley - http://www.starwoodhotels.com/luxury...language=en_US

Appears to be this former Palladian mansion, certainly looks like it has potential and c.40 rooms sounds pretty intimate! -

I also noticed this one this morning and it looks nice. We are staying at the Wellesley in a couple of weeks which also just entered SPG back in January. :)

I'd love SPG/ Marriott to pull in some more properties of this sort. Just as the Luxury Collection and Design hotels have made a certain type of property available via a chain, this kind of smaller boutique old-school hotel would be a great add.

Interesting one.

Langley Park is a few miles north west of Heathrow in 'leafy' Buckinghamshire, close to Pinewood Studios (home to James Bond production), and in the vicinity of Stoke Park, a very high-end Hotel, Spa and Golf establishment.

Booked for June
 
So excited!! Just used my category 5 FNA from the card formerly known as SPG for a stay here during an overnight layover at Heathrow. What a steal!! I'll circle back with a report after.

You have to love Marriott's copywriters, name-dropping Capability Brown. The keyword is "originally." I'm sure there are no traces of his work today.

And while a Grade II-listed building may sound impressive to Americans -- let alone something dating to the 18th century -- it seems like every building in England has a Grade II listing. The real gems are Grade I.

It looks as if everything above the first story is rebuilt, judging from the new-looking stone.

I received an email from this hotel today saying I need to respond within 72 hours to confirm I still want my reservations as they are very busy in their opening month, so you might want to check your emails if you have a reservation here. Weird.
