Asian hotel brand Pan Pacific will open a new property in London in 2020, with a carefully-chosen location in the city's 'square mile' financial district.
The 237-room Pan Pacific London is the first European property for the Singapore-based group.
The design by international firm Yabu Pushelberg incorporates an indoor lap pool with views over the bustling streets, a high-tech 'smart ballroom' for events plus a dedicated lounge to cater for guests making an early arrival or a late departure.
Situated at One Bishopsgate Plaza, guests will be a five-minute walk from Liverpool Street station; an excursion further north will land them at the colourful Old Spitalfields Market, while The City district lies just south.
Pan Pacific Hotels Group promises its entry into "the Europe luxury hotel space (will) introduce its brand of sincere hospitality for the first time to a mature and sophisticated market."
