The Londoner, a luxury urban resort, opens at Leicester Square with a focus on sustainability
The first-of-its-kind super boutique hotel, The Londoner, has officially opened its doors in the heart of London’s iconic Leicester Square featuring a range of rooms, suites, penthouses, an exclusive 24-hour residents’ space, an entire floor dedicated to wellness.
From one of the UK’s largest family-owned hotel groups, Edwardian Hotels London, The Londoner is the latest launch set to astound both Londoners and International guests with a staggering 350 guest rooms spread across 16 storeys and a subterranean series of spaces, creating one of the deepest habitable basements in the world. Designed in collaboration with world-renowned architectural designers Yabu Pushelberg, the opening marks an exciting re-birth for Leicester Square.
Known as the luxury urban resort, The Londoner features a range of rooms, suites, penthouses, two private screening rooms, an exclusive 24-hour residents’ space, an entire floor dedicated to wellness, expansive ballroom, private art gallery, wealth of meeting places, and a mix of several concept eateries. This includes their signature Mediterranean restaurant, Whitcomb’s, plus a contemporary Japanese lounge bar with a rooftop terrace and fire pit named 8, and their neighborhood bar, Joshua’s Tavern.
The Residence – Private Members Club
The Londoner offers its guests round the clock access to its own private members club style space, The Residence. The 24-hour club, strictly for guests only, is hidden from the happenings of the wider hotel and features an exclusive collection of discrete spaces for relaxing, working and indulging. For intimate dining, The Residence’s Y Bar and The Drawing Room offers an à la carte menu and a curated reserve wine list, complemented by signature house cocktails.
Located on the corner of St Martin’s Street and Orange Street, is a neighbourhood drinking spot Joshua’s Tavern, specialising in terroir-led gintonicas. Joshua’s Tavern will be a new hub for the creative communities around Leicester Square and a watering hole for like-minded professionals. The drinks menu at Joshua’s Tavern features over 50 regionally sourced gins, with each going through a five-stage matching process. Led by The Londoner’s Head Mixologist, Pierpaolo Schirru, each match includes a unique combination of garnish, house-infused bitters and tonic, to harmonise, elevate and compliment the botanicals, led by the nuance of the spirits’ terroir.
A convergence of wellness, physical fitness, and results-driven therapies, The Retreat will be The Londoner’s complete ecosystem for wellness. The Retreat merges best-in-class fitness, nutrition and nourishing therapies with other wellness practices, bringing a completely new style of holistic retreat and wellness destination to the West End. Conceived as a place where individuals can integrate health, wellbeing and the enjoyment of a luxury experience, The Retreat gives hotel guests and members a curated edit of tools so that they can look and feel their best: a private training gym, fitness classrooms for innovative weekly programming, 25m pool, barber, blow dry bar, nail bar and other modalities to offer a holistic approach to wellbeing.
