Morgans Hotel Group Reveals Location Of Second Hudson Branded Property At Great Scotland Yard

NEW YORK, July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Morgans Hotel Group is excited to announce that its newest Hudson property will be located on Great Scotland Yard in St. James's, London. The Hudson London deal was officially announced by the boutique hospitality management company in June, but the location of the project has been unconfirmed until today.  Following Hudson's flagship hotel in New York, Hudson London at Great Scotland Yard marks the beginning of Morgans Hotel Group's plan to introduce the brand into gateway markets around the globe.

Located in the heart of Westminster, Hudson London, slated to open early 2015, will be just moments away from London's most iconic landmarks including Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square and Big Ben. 

The 234-room boutique property is situated in a 102-year-old Edwardian building, formerly inhabited by the Ministry of Defense. The building was used for recruitment of the British armed forces until it was converted into a public records library in the 1980's. The elegant historic building serves as an exciting and unexpected backdrop for the newest Hudson property, which, following its New York predecessor, will emphasize public spaces as a forum for social exchange.  Inspired by a blend of old and new, Hudson will bring a distinctive new offering to London, fusing a unique playfulness with cutting-edge style and impeccable service.

Applying Hudson's trailblazing concept of lobby as social hub, the pulse of Hudson London will beat through the hotel's public spaces. The property will feature a brand new restaurant on the ground floor, a 40-seat library lounge and flexible boardroom space that can be used for business meetings as well as private events.

Hudson London commences a partnership between Morgans Hotel Group and hotel owners Sansar Investments Ltd. "We are excited to work with Morgans Hotel Group and their team to bring the second Hudson to the London market," said Raman Thukral, Director of Sansar Investments. "We could not envision a better partner to collaborate with, and are already exploring future opportunities with Morgans Hotel Group's development team."

Westminster City Council planning committee resolved, earlier this month, to grant planning consent for the hotel, which is being purchased from the Crown Estate.
