Located at one of London’s most prestigious addresses in Knightsbridge is the site for a new 36 room luxury townhouse hotel, scheduled to open on December 1, 2012.

The Wellesley, managed by Arab Investments City and Country Hotels and developed by Rhimesong, is being brought to life courtesy of a $56 million refurbishment investment.

The hotel is to be infused by both contemporary and classic impressions, with interiors created by award-winning design experts Fox Linton, combining the building’s 1920s art deco history and glamour with modern stylish touches.

In addition to its 36 rooms, the hotel will incorporate a Cigar Lounge and Terrace. The Crystal Bar. The Oval Restaurant, and the Jazz Room.

The private heated cigar terrace will feature the UK’s largest bespoke humidor and the biggest collection of cigars sold on a stick-by-stick basis and, as the perfect complement to this. The Crystal Bar will house a Whisky and Cognac wall. The bijou Oval restaurant will serve refined Italian cuisine next to a dedicated Jazz Room which is to showcase both established and up-and-coming Jazz acts in an intimate atmosphere.

The hotel bedrooms are to be situated over six floors with the sixth floor to provide one of London’s most acclaimed suites composed of four bedrooms, uninterrupted views over Hyde Park, personal humidor and boardroom, making it ideal for the discerning business traveller and high profile individuals who require several rooms.
