Launching in May 2018, Crowne Plaza London – Albert Embankment is the first luxury hotel to open in the Albert Embankment area.
This is central London’s latest area of regeneration, including the new home of the US Embassy and a whirlwind of high profile residential developments, from Battersea Power Station to Embassy Gardens.
Located on the South Bank of the River Thames, the hotel is headed by highly experienced general manager, Fabio Gallo, who has led a number of prestigious openings in his career.
Destination Rooftop Terrace
The jewel of the crown will be a chic sky terrace on the 14th floor, with inspiring panoramic views of the River Thames and capacity for more than 70 guests.
A stand-alone destination, with stylish space for alfresco dining and an exciting International food concept, the rooftop terrace will be the ultimate spot south of the river, to see and be seen in 2018.
Reflecting the surrounding skyline, the design will see a mix of sophisticated blue hues along with copper and metallic tones (see pictured). There will be open fires, floor to ceiling glass, expansive wine and spirits collections, a shisha and cigar terrace and soft, sumptuous seating, perfect for whiling away long evenings with family, friends and colleagues alike.
In keeping with the US Embassy neighbour, the hotel will offer an American lobby bar and restaurant, with capacity for over 70 guests.
The menu will pay homage to favourites from the other side of the pond, all served with a contemporary flair. A stunning bar will also stand at the centre of the room, home to an extensive cocktail menu, as well as wine, spirits and beers.
Rooms & Suites
There are 142 bedrooms, including six suites, many with stunning, unobstructed city and river views, via floor-to-ceiling windows.
All of the rooms and suites are equipped with all of the contemporary amenities expected in a luxury hotel, including Nespresso Machines and fully-stocked mini-bars, with a view to providing the ultimate in comfort, connectivity and flexibility.
