YTL Hotels acquires historic London hotel
Formerly the head offices of City and Midland Bank from the 1880s, the Grade-II listed Victorian building was restored to a luxury hotel in 2002 retaining many of its historic features.
It formed a franchise affiliation with the Autograph Collection by Marriott International in 2013 and under YTL Hotels’ new ownership and the group’s decades long relationship with Marriott International.
The acquisition of Threadneedles Hotel expands YTL Hotels’ stable of luxury properties under the Autograph Collection to four with The Glasshouse in Edinburgh, The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur and Hotel Stripes Kuala Lumpur, which debuts next month.
Dato’ Mark Yeoh, executive director of YTL Hotels, said: “We are excited to secure yet another iconic Autograph Collection property in partnership with Marriott International to further expand our hospitality footprint within the UK.
“Our relationship with Marriott International has spanned over two decades through the ownership management and future development of 10 properties across three major continents – Europe, Australia and Asia, and together we will continue to set new benchmarks for the hospitality industry for years to come.”
