The Holmes Hotel in London’s Marylebone has just opened ‘The Residence’ – a new events venue within the hotel.

The Residence is a self-contained events space which will sit alongside Holmes Hotel’s existing meeting and events facilities - designed around the “ethos and etiquette of the historic townhouse”.

The Residence consists of five versatile rooms: The Pantry, The Billiard Room, The Laboratory, The Conservatory and The Cellar. Together the rooms will seat up to 130 delegates when hired together for exclusive use.

Each room is equipped with the latest AV technology including interactive LCD screens, web cams, wi-fi and floor-to-ceiling whiteboards. There are two additional spaces – The Library and the Telegraph Room - designed for private moments or discreet phone calls.

Holmes Hotel London is an 18th-century Georgian townhouse located in Chiltern Street, Marylebone. It was formerly Park Plaza Sherlock Holmes London before PPHE group rebranded the hotel as a premium boutique hotel. Holmes Hotel London has 118 bedrooms, three meeting and events spaces, a gym and an all-day restaurant.

Plans have just been approved for a major new development in Birmingham. The £130million development will include an eight-storey, 167-bedroom hotel as well as residential accommodation and commercial space.

The development is destined for a four-acre site at Camp Hill near Digbeth, close to the centre of Birmingham and now famous as the film location of the hit TV series ‘Peaky Blinders’.

We will monitor its progress and report accordingly.

A major new-build hotel development is set to open in North Yorkshire in mid-May 2021.

Sandburn Hall Hotel will open on a 1,000-acre site just off the A64, near Castle Howard, between York and the coast.

The site already includes an 18-hole championship golf course and a restaurant

Sandburn Hall Hotel will include 40 bedrooms including two suites. Meeting and events facilities include the Grand Function Hall seating 200 delegates theatre style, the Sanderson Room seating 80 theatre style and a Sports Hall with 62ft x 112ft of exhibition space.

Team building events can also be hosted in the hotel grounds.

The Chancery Rosewood is the proposed name of the new hotel which will be housed in the former US Embassy in London’s Mayfair. The Chancery Rosewood will be operated by Rosewood Hotels and Resorts and is expected to open in 2024.

The former Embassy building is a Grade II-listed building which opened in 1960. It housed the US Embassy until 2017.

The Chancery Rosewood will include 139 bedrooms and suites, restaurants, bars and leisure facilities plus a 750-capacity ballroom together with supporting meeting and events suites.

The Chancery Rosewood will be Rosewood's second hotel in London. It will join the five-star Rosewood London located in Holborn.

A new hotel could be built just off the Brighton seafront, behind the Hilton Metropole Hotel.

Owners of the Brighton Metropole Hotel have secured planning approval to replace the existing exhibition and conference halls with a nine-storey hotel with 221 bedrooms.

The proposed scheme involves demolishing the exhibitions halls and replacing them with a nine-storey hotel with 221 bedrooms. The façade of the Grade II-listed building would be retained

Dalata Hotels group will operate the hotel whilst Hilton Hotels will continue to run the Hilton Metropole Hotel.

It was always going to be a potential future development in the hotel market. News now reaches us that the first space hotel is being planned.

The space hotel named the Voyager Class Space Station will be able to hold up to 400 guests. It is slated to open in 2027.

As well as bedroom accommodation the Voyager Class Space Station will also include bars, restaurants and leisure facilities.

Orbital Assembly Corporation is the company planning the new hotel. They are designing a station to accommodate both national space agencies conducting research as well as for the adventurous tourist who wants to experience life in space but in the comfort of a nice hotel.

Two concentric rings will form the structure of the space station with the inner ring acting as the docking hub. The outer ring will provide a base for mounting habitable modules, solar panels, radiators and even a rail transport system.

Construction on the Voyager Class hotel is expected to begin in 2025.

It will be interesting to see if the new hotel publishes a competitive day delegate rate or a 24 hour delegate rate for meetings and events.
