The Peninsula, whose portfolio of luxurious worldwide properties has attracted discerning travellers for almost a century, has announced that its elegant new hotel, The Peninsula London, located on Hyde Park Corner, is now accepting reservations for stays from 12 September 2023.
The newly built hotel, designed and appointed to embody the finest British craftsmanship, is extending an exclusive offer for its first guests.

“We believe [The Peninsula London] will be one of the most important hotels in our group for generations to come,” said Clement Kwok, Managing Director and CEO of The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited, owner and operator of The Peninsula. “It is always an important ingredient of The Peninsula that the hotel has been designed and planned not only to service international guests but that it will also become an integral part of the local community. We are very excited to welcome local residents and international visitors to experience this exceptional property and to enjoy The Peninsula’s sophisticated hospitality and service in one of the world’s most dynamic cities.”
London’s Finest Address
The Peninsula London embodies a sleek, spacious aesthetic that floods its Peter Marino-designed interiors with natural light. The hotel, along with 25 opulent luxury residences, centres around an off-street courtyard, landscaped in the style of a classic English garden with cascading ivy, wisteria vines, and 120-year-old Japanese maples allowing for a calm off-street arrival along with valet parking and underground garage. Many of the city’s most iconic attractions, including Buckingham Palace, the Royal Parks and The Palace of Westminster are less than a 15-minute-walk away – and a large number of diplomatic missions accredited to the Court of St James’s are just minutes from the hotel’s front door.
Exquisite Accommodations and Event Venues
The Peninsula London’s 190 luxurious guestrooms understatedly luxurious guest rooms and suites feature bespoke furnishings, textiles, and artworks that evoke the feel of chic private residences. All include mahogany-panelled dressing rooms, exquisite bathrooms of honey onyx, and customised fittings crafted by renowned British artisans; many have floor-to ceiling-windows with unique views over Wellington Arch and historic Belgravia.
Equally impressive are the hotel’s numerous event spaces opening later this year, which include the sweeping pillarless St George Ballroom (with back-of-house elevators large enough for an entire car), and other gathering spaces ranging from configurable conference rooms to an intimate private cinema. All are equipped with state-of-the-art technology and the attentive service of the hotel’s special-event staff.
Cuisine and Wellness
The hotel’s signature rooftop restaurant, Brooklands, offers modern British cuisine from Michelin-starred Chef Director Claude Bosi, as well as a tasting lounge and cigar storage helmed by Manu Harit, certified ‘Master of Havana Cigars,’ in a collection of spaces inspired by classic British aviation and motorsport. At Canton Blue and its adjacent bar, Little Blue, innovative Chinese cuisine, cocktails, teas, and exotic décor celebrate the spice-trade union of Asian and British cultures. And at The Lobby, traditional Peninsula Afternoon Tea and globally inspired fare are served beneath soaring ceilings, and often accompanied by live music. A more casual offering, including fresh-made salads, sandwiches, and sweets, will be available throughout the day at The Peninsula Boutique and Café.
An extensive menu of mind-body therapies will be available at the hotel’s Spa and Wellness Centre, along with exercise classes and workshops offered at the fully equipped modern fitness centre, and swimming in a dramatically lit 25m indoor swimming pool. A dedicated digital Wellness Portal also provides guests with in-room, round-the-clock access to wellness programming.
Guest Amenities and Services
As with all Peninsula properties, The Peninsula London will offer guests the superb comfort and flawless attention to detail that are synonymous with the brand. Whether via in-room amenities and technology; inspiring, destination-specific arts programmes and cultural experiences; or global proprietary services like Peninsula Time (fully flexible check-in and check-out) and PenChat (access to a 24-hour digital concierge), the hotel exemplifies The Peninsula’s enduring commitment to its guests and larger community.
