Westin to Open First United Kingdom Property in 2020
Marriott International, Inc. has announced plans to debut the Westin brand in the United Kingdom. Owned by 4C Hotel Group and managed by RBH, The Westin London City is set to open in 2020 and will offer a riverfront location in the heart of the City of London. This hotel signing is part of Westinâs continued expansion around the world, which includes recent openings in Australia and upcoming debuts in Malaysia and the Maldives.
The Westin London City will be a key part of the redevelopment of the former Queensbridge House site, as well as an independently operated destination restaurant. The site stretches from Queenhithe Dock and runs north to south, bridging across Upper Thames Street and giving it a prominent position over one of the primary arterial routes through the City of London. Visible from the South Bank, the hotel will also offer panoramic views over the River Thames and will complete the northern riverbank walkway between the Tower of London and Millennium Bridge.
The Westin London City, designed by British architects Dexter Moren Associates, has a design that focuses on the idea that a connection to nature enhances well-being. When guests first arrive, they will enter into an atrium space that is open and airy, yet residential. The lobby leads into a riverside bar and restaurant, which opens onto the new public walkway affording views across the river towards Shakespeareâs Globe and the South Bank.

All rooms will have Westinâs signature services and amenities, such as the Heavenly Bed and Heavenly Bath experience.
