Sir David Chipperfield oversees design process of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts’ second London hotel

Rosewood Hotels & Resorts was appointed by Qatari Diar to manage a new hotel located on Grosvenor Square in London’s Mayfair district. Set to be housed in the building that currently serves as the U.S. Embassy, the hotel will be the second Rosewood property in London and the company's sixth property in Europe.

The property will have 137 guestrooms and suites, as well as a variety of dining and entertainment spaces, including five gourmet restaurants. The property will also have a spa, as well as six retail spaces and a grand ballroom with space for up to 1,000 guests.

An opening date has not yet been confirmed, but construction is set to start later this year. British architect Sir David Chipperfield was selected to oversee the design process, which will reimagine the mid-20th century listed building through interior upgrades while still maintaining the integrity of the property through the preservation of the building’s original, Grade II listed façade.
