Stylish Grandeur in the Heart of Belgravia
Superbly situated between Hyde Park Corner and Wellington Arch, The Peninsula London is located at one of the city’s most prestigious addresses.
The elegant, newly built hotel, impeccably designed to harmonise with surrounding heritage buildings and centred around an expansive inner courtyard, is just moments from many of London’s most iconic attractions – including The Royal Parks, The Palace of Westminster, Harrods and the boutiques of Bond Street.
Many of the hotel’s 190 guest rooms and suites, exquisitely crafted by world-renowned architect and designer of interiors Peter Marino, have floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the historic architecture of the surrounding district.
The hotel’s premier stay options include the opulent Peninsula Suite, which features a private screening room, gym, and dedicated transport drop-off and pick-up service. When it is interconnected with six other rooms and suites on the floor, it can encompass a palatial space of nearly 1,490 sq m – one of the largest private suites available in London.
The world-class dining available at The Peninsula London includes Brooklands, whose splendid multi-space setting honours classic British motorsport and aviation and whose modern British cuisine is created by Michelin-starred Chef Director Claude Bosi, and Canton Blue, where both the fare and décor pay tribute to the maritime spice-trade routes connecting Britain and Asia.
The property also offers two sleek cocktail bars, an exclusive cigar lounge, and an elegant Boutique & Café. The Peninsula Spa & Wellness Centre provides revitalising wellness and beauty treatments and is joined by several impressive event venues, including a grand ballroom and a shopping arcade featuring nine luxury boutiques.
Guests wishing to plan a stay or an event at the hotel can benefit from a special introductory promotion, bookable through 30 November 2023.
