YTL Hotels has announced its fifth property in the UK with the acquisition of Threadneedles Hotel, its second Autograph Collection property in the country.
Situated in the heart of the City of London, Threadneedles Hotel was formerly the head offices of City and Midland Bank from the 1880s.
The Grade-II listed Victorian building was immaculately restored to a luxury hotel in 2002 retaining many of its historic features. As one of London’s finest hotels, Threadneedles Hotel formed a powerful franchise affiliation with the Autograph Collection by Marriott International in 2013 and under YTL Hotels’ new ownership and the group’s decades long relationship with Marriott International, the hotel will look forwards to its next phase of development.
Dato’ Mark Yeoh, Executive Director of YTL Hotels said: “We are excited to secure yet another iconic Autograph Collection property in partnership with Marriott International to further expand our hospitality footprint within the United Kingdom. Our relationship with Marriott International has spanned over two decades through the ownership management and future development of ten properties across three major continents – Europe, Australia and Asia, and together we will continue to set new benchmarks for the hospitality industry for years to come.”
The hotel features 74 bedrooms and suites, Marco Pierre White Wheeler’s of St. James’s Oyster Bar and Grill Room and a Champagne Bar.
