This is certainly news to me as I never knew Westins don’t exist in the UK. I’m a huge fan of Westin properties and have always had consistent stays there, no matter which city I was in.
Marriott today announced the addition of Westin hotels in the UK starting with The Westin London City in 2020:
Marriott International, Inc. today announced plans to debut the Westin brand in the United Kingdom. Owned by 4C Hotel Group and managed by RBH, The Westin London City is set to open in 2020 and will boast a prime riverfront location in the heart of the City of London. This hotel signing illustrates how the global demand for well-being continues to propel Westin’s growth around the world, with recent openings in Australia and upcoming debuts in Malaysia and the Maldives.
More from Marriott:
The Westin London City will be a key part of the redevelopment of the former Queensbridge House site, as well as an independently operated destination restaurant. The site stretches from Queenhithe Dock – the oldest in London – and runs north to south, bridging across Upper Thames Street and giving it a prominent position over one of the primary arterial routes through the City of London. Highly visible from the South Bank, the hotel will also benefit from panoramic views over the River Thames and will complete the northern riverbank walkway between the Tower of London and Millennium Bridge.
The Westin London City is designed by architect Dexter Moren Associates who have designed dozens of beautiful properties such as the Otkritie Arena (FC Spartak Moscow), a major arena for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
The hotel will have 220 guest rooms, including 29 suites and Presidential Suite. The property looks gorgeous and the interior is stunning. The Westin London City is certainly a welcomed addition to the Marriott/SPG portfolio!
