Hyatt has debuted its first Unbound Collection property in the UK with the opening of the 152-room Great Scotland Yard Hotel following a major restoration and renovation.
Located on the site of the former headquarters of the Metropolitan Police in London, the luxury hotel and adjacent five-storey townhouse is the sixth member of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt in Europe.
As part of a collection of unique hotels, each with their own distinct story, Great Scotland Yard is an iconic property steeped in history.
Once the historical home of law and order in the City of Westminster, the hotel has also served as inspiration for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, has been a dwelling for Kings of Scotland, and is the site where Lord Kitchener famously told World War I recruits, “Your country needs you”. Every aspect of the hotel pays homage to this extraordinary past.
Located steps away from Parliament and Covent Garden, guests are only a stone’s throw away from the cultural hotspots of one of the world’s most vibrant cities.
The 1820’s Grade II-listed building has 152 guest rooms, including 15 suites. There are wardrobes concealed behind a bookcase-like façade and robe hooks shaped as keys. Where no two rooms are the same, guests are welcome to ‘unlock the secret’ of Great Scotland Yard.
No1 Great Scotland Yard Townhouse is a unique standalone two-bedroom property adjacent to the main building. Situated over five stories, it provides an exclusive and intimate experience for guests.
The property features four restaurants and bars that pay tribute to the building’s rich past, including the main signature restaurant, The Yard, which offers modern British cuisine, with an open kitchen showcasing culinary craftmanship. Produce from local micro-farmers helps reduce the restaurant’s carbon footprint and allows guests to experience a slice of the countryside in the city.
The Great Scotland Yard is the sixth property to open in Europe as part of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt. It joins Hôtel Martinez in Cannes, Nish Palas in Istanbul, Hotel SOFIA Barcelona, Hôtel du Louvre in Paris and Párisi Udvar Hotel Budapest.
