Maybourne Hotel Group to open fourth London property


Maybourne Hotel Group, the operator behind Claridge’s, The Connaught and The Berkeley, will open its fourth London property in winter 2023 with The Emory.

Designed by the late Richard Rogers and Ivan Harbour of architectural firm RSHP, the sail-like structure will tower above the treetops of Hyde Park, while its understated entrance on Old Barrack Yard will introduce a sense of privacy.

Inside, the Knightsbridge hotel will comprise 60 suites set over nine floors topped by a penthouse designed by Rigby & Rigby. Each floor will showcase the aesthetic of a world renowned interior designer, from Alexandra Champalimaud, André Fu and Pierre-Yves Rochon to Rémi Tessier and Patricia Urquiola.

The jewel in the property’s crown will be its guests-only rooftop, which offers panoramic views of the capital, while beneath ground will be a four-storey wellness space featuring a 22m pool.

Amongst the culinary offering meanwhile, celebrated chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten will introduce his ABC concept of fresh, local and conscious cuisine to London for the very first time, following its success at his beloved Manhattan outpost.

“This is our first new London property in 50 years, and we believe it will be a truly ground breaking new addition to our distinguished hotel family. We plan to bring the inspiration and creative energy that have made our other hotels so notable, whilst also making The Emory a world class hub of art and culture,” says Gianluca Muzzi, CEO of Maybourne Hotel Group. “This opening further cements our vision and commitment to growing Maybourne Hotel Group, and heralds a bold new future for the company.”

Experienced hotelier Knut Wylde has been named as General Manager of The Emory in addition to his existing role as General Manager of The Berkeley. Upon opening, the property will become the group’s sixth hotel, including its two international sites – The Maybourne Beverly Hills and The Maybourne Riviera.
