New Raffles London Luxury Hotel Is Now Open In Winston Churchill’s Former War Office

Raffles, a renowned luxury hotel brand, has recently opened its first establishment in the United Kingdom. Situated in the historic Old War Office (OWO) in London, which was once the residence of the iconic Winston Churchill, the hotel offers a grand and opulent experience. Following extensive renovations, Raffles London Luxury Hotel now boasts 125 lavish guest rooms and suites, a magnificent 600-person ballroom, and 2.5 miles of luxurious corridors.

Guests at Raffles London will be spoiled for choice with a wide array of culinary options. Nine restaurants and three bars ensure that visitors can savor exceptional dining experiences. The acclaimed Argentinian chef, Mauro Colagreco, contributes three unique dining experiences, while the rooftop bar provides panoramic views of Buckingham Palace. For a touch of nostalgia, guests can indulge in elegant afternoon teas in the old library, paying homage to the building’s rich history.

The historical significance of the OWO spans centuries. From the Tudor and Stuart periods to its rebuilding during the Victorian era following a devastating fire, the building has witnessed various significant events. Notably, during World War II, Winston Churchill utilized the OWO as his office, and even Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond, frequented the premises as a British Intelligence officer. In fact, several scenes from the iconic 007 movies were filmed in and around this remarkable structure.

Raffles London Luxury Hotel not only provides an exceptional accommodation experience but also offers various luxurious amenities. A notable feature is the 20-meter subterranean pool, ideal for relaxation and rejuvenation. Additionally, the hotel introduces the city’s first Guerlain brand Spa, spanning four floors. Here, guests can enjoy facilities such as saunas, steam rooms, experience showers, a state-of-the-art gym, and lavish treatment rooms. The Guerlain Atelier presents opportunities for express beauty treatments, make-up consultations, and indulging in exquisite fragrances.

The heritage suites at Raffles London are truly exceptional, with each one having its own unique charm. Among them is the two-bedroom Churchill suite, which previously served as the Army Council Room, and the one-bedroom Granville suite, named after Polish agent Christine Granville. These suites feature spacious bathrooms complete with a freestanding bathtub and a custom-built walk-in shower. Moreover, all guests at Raffles London are provided with the impeccable service of a 24-hour butler, ensuring a truly relaxing and memorable stay.
