London to Get New InterContinental Hotel

London

We all thought London's luxury hotel boom had hit a lull in the months before the Olympics, but apparently we were wrong: TheConstructionIndex is reporting that the existing Queen Anne’s Chambers building in Westminster will be renovated into a five star luxury InterContinental Hotel for developer Supreme Hotels.

Located on Broadway, close to the Houses of Parliament, the site was originally developed as a hospital, later to become home to the government’s Treasury Solicitor. The underused buildings will now be transformed into The InterContinental London Westminster, with completion scheduled for the end of 2012.

We hear that the completed hotel will have a large presidential suite on level six, along with an executive club bar and lounge area. The ground floor will be configured to provide an open plan layout, with reception area leading through to a tea lounge, then into a winter garden area, contemporary restaurant and, finally, a bar.
