Rosewood to convert US embassy into second London property

Rosewood to convert US embassy into second London property 

Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has been appointed by global real estate investment firm Qatari Diar to manage a new hotel located on picturesque Grosvenor Square in London’s prestigious Mayfair. 

Set to be housed in the iconic building which currently serves as the US embassy, the hotel will be the second Rosewood property in London and will open as the sixth property in Europe. 

The property will offer 137 spacious guestrooms and suites, as well as a variety of dining and entertainment spaces, including five gourmet restaurants.

It will also feature a signature spa, which will provide guests with a luxurious retreat from the bustling streets of London, as well as six flagship retail spaces and a grand ballroom with space for up to 1,000 guests. 

Esteemed British architect David Chipperfield has been selected to oversee the design process, which will reimagine the mid-20th century listed building through elegant interior upgrades while still maintaining the integrity of the property through the preservation of the building’s original, Grade II listed façade.
