It was designed by BUJ architects, Uri Blumenthal architects and Digital Space,[1] and was built on the site of the County Hall Island Block, an annex of London County Hall, that was demolished in 2006. The building, also known as No 1 Westminster Bridge Road, had been disused since 1986 and had become derelict, being described by the BBC as "one of London's most hated eyesores".[2]

The hotel opened on 1 March 2010,[3] and cost £300 million.[4] Part of PPHE Hotel Group
