New InterContinental to Open in London


Here's something to look forward to in London: The first InterContinental hotel to open in London for more than 36 years is due to debut in November. We hear that The InterContinental London Westminster will be close to Parliament, in earshot of Big Ben and within sight of Westminster Abbey.

The hotel is located in Queen Anne’s Chambers, a former government building, which was once home to the Treasury Solicitor and The Brewers’ Society among others during its century-long history. It will reportedly have 256 rooms—including 44 suites and a penthouse—spread across six floors.

Dining options will reportedly include the Blue Boar Smokehouse & Bar, serving local ales, classic cocktails, and British wines. The restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.

InterContinental London Westminster joins InterContinental London Park Lane as the second InterContinental property in London.
