Crown teams up with Morgans for Scotland Yard hotel

By Paul Norman - Friday, July 13, 2012 13:10

The Queen’s property company is teaming up with the US’s boutique hotel pioneers Morgans to redevelop former Ministry of Defence offices on London’s Great Scotland Yard as a sister hotel to the Hudson New York.

The Crown and Sansar Investments, advised by CBRE, have lodged two separate but linked proposals with Westminster council to redevelop 3-5 Great Scotland Yard as a 234-bed “boutique budget” three-star hotel and for the conversion of the Piccadilly Backpackers hostel at 12 Sherwood Street to offices.

The site is located on the northern side of Great Scotland Yard. 3-5 Great Scotland Yard was built in 1910 and is currently vacant but was occupied by the Ministry of Defence for offices and a library. 12 Sherwood Street is occupied by The Piccadilly Backpacker’s hostel providing 730 bedspaces in dorms.

The Crown’s longer-term intention is that 12 Sherwood Street will convert to residential use.

The proposed 234 budget boutique hotel will be branded as the Hudson London and will be the sister to the Hudson New York, the boutique budget level hotel of The Morgans hotel group.

The plans propose a bespoke interior design scheme with the front of house area having the ambience of a Pall Mall club combined with a contemporary interior designed by Martin Brudnizki.

It will also include a restaurant, cocktail lounge, meeting room and function/private dining room.

The Morgans Hotel Group sold two of its London hotels – the Sanderson and St Martins Lane hotels - to Middle Eastern investor Capital Hill Hotels in October of last year for around £190m.

Morgans continues to operate the hotels under long-term management agreements.
