From one of the UK’s largest family-owned hotel groups, Edwardian Hotels London, this super boutique subterranean hotel The Londoner is the latest launch with 350 guest rooms spread across 16 storeys and a subterranean series of spaces.

These create one of the deepest habitable basements in the world. Designed in collaboration with world-renowned architectural designers Yabu Pushelberg, Edwardian Hotels London say that the opening marks a pivotal moment in the return and scale of global hospitality, and an exciting re-birth for Leicester Square.

Known as the luxury urban resort, The Londoner features a range of rooms, suites, penthouses, two private screening rooms, an exclusive 24-hour residents’ space, an entire floor dedicated to wellness, expansive ballroom, private art gallery, wealth of meeting places, and a mix of several concept eateries. This includes their signature Mediterranean restaurant, Whitcomb’s, plus a contemporary Japanese lounge bar with a rooftop terrace and fire pit named 8, and their neighbourhood bar, Joshua’s Tavern.

London Fashion Week

The Londoner is also the Official Hotel of London Fashion Week 2021; a convenient perfect place to stay as renowned designers reveal their latest Spring Summer 22 collections and digital showrooms. As a guest at The Londoner, your room key grants you access to The Residence – three specially designed spaces for residents only. In addition – entry to the hotel’s pool, gym, superfood clinic plus more at The Retreat, including priority access to daily curated experiences.

Edwardian Hotels London add that whilst super in scale, their boutique approach and commitment to hospitality offers the highest levels of luxury with an experience designed to make every guest feel at home. As a brand-new opening in London, The Londoner has employed pioneering methods of sustainable luxury, which exceeds the BREEAM Excellent category in building environmental and sustainable performance.
