The £208m large dual hotel development, which forms a crucial part of the Paddington Basin Masterplan and is located next to Paddington Rail Station.

The scheme is built upon an existing double basement car park and encompasses a 393 bedroom Premier Inn, 240 cover Bar and Block restaurant, and a 249 bed Wilde by Staycity aparthotel.

In addition to the two large hotels, the building also delivers a 9 storey, 27,000 sq. ft. education facility which will open as the (MBS) Sixth Form building, a new faculty of the nearby Marylebone Boys’ School.

The site, which sits adjacent to the A40/Westway, was acquired in February 2019 by developer Concierge 3, a consortium of BSW Land & Property, Staycity and The Pickstock Group, and funded by M&G Real Estate, with construction on the 20 storey building commencing swiftly thereafter. The BREEAM Excellent development was designed by Powell Dobson Architects and delivered by White Ink Architects.
