Award-winning actor, Robert De Niro has been granted permission for an 83-bedroom boutique hotel named Wellington Hotel in Covent Garden, Central London.
The luxury hotel will have a spa, a members’ club and two restaurants.
Robert De Niro spoke about the project in May and described it as a continuation of the good work done in New York.
He said: “London is one of the most exciting and cosmopolitan cities in the world. It makes perfect sense to develop a hotel that represents all of that in the heart of this city in Covent Garden.
“The Wellington hotel will honour the heritage of the area, while bringing the best of what we’ve done in New York to London.”
