When the 350-guestroom hotel is completed in 2019, it will include two cinemas, a spa, bars and restaurants in Leicester Square. The group has partnered with project engineers Arup and project developers McGee for the new complex. 

"The look and feel of the hotel is an important factor in attracting people," Rob Steul, creative director at Edwardian Hotels London, said. "The modern four-sided island site will ensure accessibility for the public to the various bars, cinemas and the hotel itself."
