Morgans Hotel Group announced 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 now.
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, 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 1980s.
The property will feature a 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. Hudson London at Great Scotland Yard is Morgans Hotel Group's fourth property in London, joining renowned Sanderson and St. Martins Lane properties, and Mondrian London at Sea Containers House, set to open its doors in early 2014.
