Marriott International, the largest hospitality chain in the world, has announced that the iconic St. Regis brand is coming to London in 2023.
Marriott has signed a management agreement with Cola Holdings and The Westbury Hotel Limited to bring the storied St. Regis brand to Mayfair, London. The St. Regis brand continues to expand its global portfolio by adding this highly sought-after address in Mayfair. The St. Regis London is expected to open in 2023 on the corner of Bond Street and Conduit Street. The hotel will blend the brand’s modern glamour with the best of British style and service.
The former Westbury Mayfair Hotel will undergo an extensive $122 million dollar (90 million pound) renovation. Marriott will add an eight floor and the property will also receive an extension to the rear of the hotel, creating enhanced public areas, along with renovations to the façade of the building and the drop-off area outside of the main entrance. The hotel, which is expected to open with 196 elegant rooms and suites, will be designed by Peter Newman-Earp of Morrison Design with interiors by Richmond International.￼

The hotel will honour the building’s heritage by retaining the iconic Polo Bar, originally designed for the Phipps family of America, avid polo players and creators of the Westbury Hotel in New York and London, and where guests will be able to enjoy a local twist on the Bloody Mary, St. Regis’ signature cocktail. The renovation will seamlessly blend high-design with the celebrated hallmarks of St. Regis Hotels, including exquisite experiences, avant-garde style, and anticipatory service.
George Fleck, Vice President and Global Brand Leader, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts, said:
This is a pivotal moment for St. Regis Hotels & Resorts as we bring this cherished brand to the United Kingdom. St. Regis offers an exquisite experience inspired by the exceptional private retreats of its founding family, the Astors, whose commitment to excellence, sophisticated style, and passion for innovation continue to define the guest experience today. We are delighted to bring the brand’s timeless legacy, cherished traditions and bespoke service to one of the finest addresses in London, and look forward to becoming the city’s most glamorous destination for locals and travellers alike.
Design plans include a signature restaurant, speakeasy jazz bar, fitness centre and spa.
