    This could spell the entrance of the Peninsula brand into London. A wild guess?:)

    Wonderful location, likely to be a true aspirational property.

    Surely McD's would be interested, they already have the arches in situ.
    All they would need is a big can of yellow paint.

    I am not sure the McDonald clan would want to be that close to the Windsors.

    But it looks as if it would be pretty well set up for a drive thru.

    From what I've heard, Hyatt are very interested for their long awaited Park Hyatt. Also, the American Embassy is a possible Grand Hyatt. I believe they bid for Admiralty Arch ownership but lost out to the company who own the new Bulgari hotel. They are likely to try for management though. Fingers crossed although dread the rates.

    If you are worried about the rates then you won't be able to afford staying there. Thats why we collect points so we don't blow the mortgage money on the hotel. We do that to get top status on our airline...

    True. Will likely be great use of 22k points. Although I don't fly enough for status - prefer to buy miles and fly F.

    This luxury hotel is looking awesome. It's location between Trafalgar Square and Buckingham Palace make it more impressive. I am sure, this hotel become another tourist attraction point of London.

  14. Having just walked under the arch last week I also now dream of that place being a luxury hotel. I currently stay at the IC Park Lane but that location could tip the scales.

    I still do not understand the brand extension of apparel companies into hotel chains- I have the same inclination to stay in an Armani hotel as I do to have Four Seasons Hotel branded suits or Cartier airlines.

    UPDATE:

    || London’s Admiralty Arch hotel plans approved ||

    The article doesn't mention under which brand the hotel will be operated, having said this, it is expected to open as an Armani hotel.
