Raffles Hotels & Resorts announced ‘Raffles London at The OWO’ will start welcoming guests from late 2022.
One of the UK’s most anticipated openings, Raffles London at The OWO is housed in the landmark Grade II listed former Old War Office on Whitehall.
Following a major transformation it features 120 rooms and suites, 85 branded residences and 11 restaurants and bars.
The UK’s first Raffles hotel will have an extensive wellness space featuring spa and fitness partners and will be home to a rooftop restaurant and bar with panoramic views across Whitehall, The Mall and on to Buckingham Palace.
The Old War Office interior has classic Edwardian architecture and the building’s key features have been completely restored.
Raffles and owner Hinduja Group have brought together a team of industry talent including interior design by Thierry Despont.
Stephen Alden, CEO of Raffles Hotels & Orient Express said: "The launch of Raffles London at The OWO is a singular moment for the London hospitality scene as the Raffles brand arrives in the city. We are so proud to be part of the magnificent five-year transformation of the historic Old War Office building."
