Originally opened in 1922, Ten Trinity Square, once the headquarters of the Port of London, has been transformed into the 100-room Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square. The building's other claims to fame include hosting the inaugural reception of the United Nations Grand Assembly, and playing a starring role in a James Bond film, 2012's Skyfall.
"Today marks the start of a brilliant new chapter in the colorful history of Ten Trinity Square, and in the story of the Four Seasons UK Collection, which began when we opened our first hotel in London 47 years ago this week," said Charlie Parker, general manager of the new property.
Near the Tower of London and Tower Bridge, and a short walk from the River Thames, Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square features a bar set beneath an art deco domed ceiling, as well as two destination restaurants, one a French eatery helmed by Anne-Sophie Pic, the only female French chef to earn three Michelin stars. A spa opening in April will offer eight treatment rooms, a vitality pool, steam and sauna rooms, a 46-foot indoor pool, and a fitness center.
For meetings, the property has 7,857 square feet of function space for groups of up to 200. Highlights include Merchants Hall, a circular ballroom for up to 70 guests windows all around, light oak paneling and antique mirrors; and the historic UN Ballroom (left), which hosted the inaugural United Nations Grand Assembly in 1946 and has been restored to showcase its 30-foot ceilings, Corinthian columns, original walnut paneling and two crystal chandeliers.
Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square is Britain's third Four Seasons hotel, joining the Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane and the Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire.
