Right now it’s just a building site, but in a matter of a few short months it’s going to be the coolest boutique hotel in Knightsbridge.
Yesterday morning I had the pleasure of putting on my hard hat and visiting The Wellesley Hotel. Located right next door to The Lanesborough, and across from Hyde Park, you couldn’t ask for a more glamorous location. And that’s exactly what the hotel will feel like, a chic, sophisticated and totally glamorous hideaway.
Here’s a peek of what’s to come…
There will be 27 suites and 9 bedrooms in the 1920’s luxury townhouse. I was able to step inside at Room 101 (pictured above) and get a little teaser of the luxury that the hotel will provide for their guests.
The Wellesley will highlight two things, jazz and cigars. It will house the largest humidor in a London hotel and have a special jazz lounge where you can listen to your favorite tunes while sipping on afternoon tea or a cocktail.
I am personally very excited about the outdoor cigar terrace, which will be heated during the winter. Because even though it will be freezing, we need to show off our party dress while enjoying our martini’s, right?
The Wellesley is due to open in December. Stay tuned…. I’m sure you’ll see more posts and tweets from when doors open.
