Opening on Knightsbridge, the RSHP-designed hotel will offer 60 suites over 9 storeys, with each floor showcasing unique aesthetics of multiple different interior designers.

The Emory will also play host to world-famous chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s ABC concept, imported from Manhattan.

A newly created wellness space, complete with a 22 metre pool, will be constructed beneath ground for guests at The Emory.

CEO of Maybourne Hotel Group, Gianluca Muzzi, said: “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. This opening further cements our vision and commitment to growing Maybourne Hotel Group, and heralds a bold new future for the company.”
