Scotland Yard To Open As A Police Themed Hotel

Galliard Group has completed the conversion of the original Scotland Yard Metropolitan Police headquarters into a new luxury hotel.

The development of the Great Scotland Yard Hotel has taken over three years to complete and will launch as what the developers say will be one of the finest five star hotels ever built in London later this year. The hotel, owned by Lulu Group International and operated by Hyatt, will feature 153 rooms including 11 suites. Its interior design will reference the building’s police and military past and its associations with infamous crimes such as the Jack the Ripper murders and authors Charles Dickens and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Don O’ Sullivan, Chief Executive of Galliard Group said: “Over the last decade Galliard has 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.”

This development marks a continuing trend for London’s iconic public buildings to be reborn with a new commercial use. Increasingly, in the hotel world, it is no longer enough for a luxurious hotel to be simply luxurious – the property must have a rich and unique story to tell in order to make it truly exclusive.
