Pretty much no other detail is available at this time, but what we can tell you is that competition, despite London’s never ending appetite for hotels, will be intense. Within spitting distance you will find a list of hotels that includes - but is not limited to - the Lanesborough (across the street), the Four Seasons, the Dorchester and 45 Park Lane, the Bulgari, the Berkeley, and the Ritz. Just like Paris, the arrival of the Peninsula will complete the Asian circle of Mandarin Oriental (also around the corner) and Shangri-La (at the Shard).
Presumably whatever plans the hotel group (and its army of architects) will come up with will have to account for the unrelenting traffic on Grosvenor Place, the main artery from Victoria up to Park Lane, which sees a lot of typical red double-decker city and tour bus traffic. A slew of bus stops is right out front, as well the traffic lights to get onto the roundabout around Wellington Arch, so triple-glazing will be in order we think.
As soon as more details become available, you will read about it here.
