Ground broken for The Peninsula London

The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels has begun construction of The Peninsula London, adding another alpha city location to the brand’s portfolio counting New York City, Tokyo and Paris.

The hotel will occupy a site looking out to iconic London attractions – Hyde Park Corner and the Wellington Arch – and comprise a 190-room hotel plus 24-28 luxury residential apartments, with opening currently scheduled for 2021.
