Description of 25-31 Wellington Street
25-31 Wellington Street is a boutique hotel development in Covent Garden WC2.
Capital & Counties Properties PLC together with Robert De Niro and BD Hotels are creating a visionary new 83-room luxury boutique hotel.
The new development will be the first hotel outside of the US for boutique hotel pioneers De Niro, Ira Drukier and Richard Born - the team behind the internationally renowned The Greenwich Hotel in New York's Tribeca district.
Together, they have envisioned an entirely new hotel concept, bespoke for Covent Garden, which builds on their extraordinary success in Manhattan. The innovative scheme would include luxury spa facilities, two restaurants, a deli/café and a members' club, all of which will be built around a central courtyard conservatory.
Bounded by Wellington Street, Tavistock Street, Burleigh Street and Exeter Street, The Wellington Hotel will rejuvenate a whole block (within the Covent Garden Conservation Area), spanning six adjacent buildings, three of which are Grade II Listed.
Since acquiring the estate 10 years ago, Capco has transformed Covent Garden into one of the most distinct and vibrant destinations in London. The estate, which comprises over one million square feet, welcomes over 40 million visitors a year and is home to iconic brands including Chanel, Dior, Balthazar and Ivy Market Grill. The world-famous SUSHISAMBA will open in Covent Garden's Market Building next year.
