The New Hudson London is Rumored to Have a £10,000 a Night VIP Suite
If you're looking for a hotel with a history for your next visit to London, how about a site where the Jack the Ripper investigations took place?
3-5 Great Scotland Yard is the famous address that housed the Metropolitan Police's first headquarters (from 1829 until 1890), was rebuilt in an Edwardian style in 1910 and is now being turned into a luxury hotel, expected to open in early 2015.
While recent reports say that "the hotel is expected to operate as either Mercer London, Chateau Marmont London or equivalent Hollywood level brand," it is actually, as we reported back in May, the site of the new Hudson London
Morgans Hotel Group states that the new hotel will have a signature restaurant on the ground floor, a 40-seat library lounge and flexible boardroom space. There will also be a total of 234 rooms, including what rumors say will be a £10,000 a night VIP Suite, created from an adjoining Edwardian office building.
Work on the building will begin next month. Interiors will be refurbished and two new floors added, but the original facade will remain.
