Nestled in the heart of Knightsbridge, The Emory stands as a testament to modern luxury and historical charm. Opening its doors this month (April) 2024, this all-suite hotel is the latest jewel in the crown of the Maybourne Hotel Group, known for operating prestigious properties like Claridge’s, The Connaught, and The Berkeley.

The Emory’s history is rooted in its transformation by Richard Rogers and Ivan Harbour both of RSHP from a former barracks to a contemporary architectural landmark. It is the vision of the Maybourne Hotel Group who wanted to create a hub of art and culture and a new icon on the hospitality scene in London.

The interiors, crafted by a collective including Andrea Fu, Pierre-Yves Rochon, Rémi Tessier, Champalimaud Design, and Patricia Urquiola, exude elegance. The sixty light-filled suites offer a haven of comfort and style, featuring plush furnishings and subtle green tones that harmonize with the views of Hyde Park and the golden hues of sunset and adorned with bespoke artwork.

Each suite boasts a Japanese Toto toilet, twin sinks, a separate shower, and bathtub, complemented by Surrenne bath products that encourage tranquillity and rejuvenation.

Featuring the stunning penthouse by Rigby & Rigby and The Emory Park Suite crafted by the globally acclaimed André Fu, this modernist gem is a testament to meticulous design. André’s hallmark of crisp lines and understated color accents set the tone for the interior. Expansive floor-to-ceiling windows and a generous balcony offer panoramic views of Hyde Park and the charming red-bricked streets surrounding it.

The Emory boasts a variety of amenities tailored to meet every need. Its rooftop space is a highlight, offering panoramic views of London and includes a private members club and wellness area with complimentary membership for guests, complete with a 22-metre swimming pool.

Culinary enthusiasts will appreciate The Emory’s London branch of Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s renowned ABC restaurant, which emphasizes fresh, local, and mindful cuisine. Designed by Remi Téssier, the restaurant also showcases Damien Hirst’s artwork. Overlooking Hyde Park through its glass façade, the menu features elements from his New York restaurants.

Other amenities include a personalised “Emory Assistant”, two-way transport to and from London’s international airports and private airports. Unpacking and pressing service and use of the Emory house car.
