London is rolling out the red carpet once again for Rosewood Hotels & Resorts. The luxury company, which has not been in London since Starwood Hotels & Resorts took over The Lanesborough (originally a Rosewood hotel), will make its dramatic debut in October 2013.

Following a $130 million renovation, Rosewood London will sit in a 1914 Edwardian Bell Epoque building on Central London's High Holborn Road. The building was the original headquarters of the Pearl Assurance Company.

The entrance into the hotel will be nothing short of fabulous. We hear the hotel will keep its original wrought iron-gated carriageway entrance. Guests will be greeted with a Grand Pavonazzo marble staircase. There will be 262 guest rooms and 44 suites. There will also be a Sense spa, Martin Brudnizki restaurant, two private dining rooms and 11 event spaces.
