Galliard Group has completed the 3.5-year construction of the new Great Scotland Yard Hotel, once the location of the original Scotland Yard Metropolitan Police HQ, later offices for the Ministry of Defence and now a new 93,000ft² 5-star hotel, to be owned by Lulu Group International and operated by Hyatt. The €87.4m (£75m) project was designed by Hirsch Bedner Associates.
Set to launch later in 2019, the new €128m (£110m) seven-storey hotel at 1-5 Great Scotland Yard provides 153 bedrooms and suites; the 11 suites including a spectacular townhouse suite created from part of the original Scotland Yard Police premises. The hotel has a double height vestibule, grand entrance lounge, concierge, main cocktail bar, palm court style lounge, whiskey bar/clubroom, signature restaurant, library, gymnasium, 120 seater main conference room/ballroom, meeting rooms and function/private dining rooms.
Stephen Conway, Executive Chairman of Galliard Group said: “Galliard’s construction division has delivered one of London’s most outstanding 5-star hotels. With its iconic address and famous history, the hotel’s interior design cleverly references the building’s police and military past through the use of shields, emblems and historic details etched into glass and metalwork.”
Don O’ Sullivan, Chief Executive of Galliard Group said: “Over the last decade Galliardhas built 10 hotels and the Great Scotland Yard Hotel sets a new benchmark for high-quality construction and exquisite design. Our vision was to deliver a world-class hotel of the quality of The Mercer or the Chateau Marmont, a place renowned for exceptional service, destination dining and leisure and outstanding luxury and quality.”
