WESTIN LANDS IN LONDON
THE Westin London City has officially opened its doors with the riverfront address the brand’s first hotel in the United and the 1000th property in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region.
The 222-room property was designed by British architects Dexter Moren Associates to combines “meaningful wellness with contemporary fluid and sculptural design” and deliver a “modern residential feel” inspired by the location.
Guest rooms feature the brand’s signature features, like the Heavenly Bed and a “spa-like bathroon”, with amenities including White Tea Heavenly® Bath products and Sleep Well Lavender Balm created to encourage restorative rest.
There is a selection of two dining venues – wine bar Hithe + Seek, overlooking the Thames, and all-day dining destination Mosaic which features a sustainably-sourced menu – with spaces sitting at the heart of the hotel overlooking the River Thames to Shakespeare’s Globe theatre and Tate Modern art gallery.
The Westin London City sits beside the Thames pathway that connects the Embankment to the Tower of London, with guests encouraged to make the most of the location by utilising the hotel’s Rise & Run club inspired by the brand’s RunWESTIN program.
“By connecting these two sides of London, we have opened a walkway that could help towards a greener city, encouraging locals and visitors alike to walk the beautiful stretch of river,” said 4C Hotel Group Chief Operating Officer Neil Taylor.
“It has been 80 years in the making in bringing this walkway back for everyday use and we are delighted to see our city united once more.”
