Inside the Newly Opened Raffles Hotel at The OWO London

London calling.

Haldane Suite

On Whitehall, the famous road between Trafalgar Square and the Houses of Parliament, the Old War Office has been transformed into The OWO by Raffles, the luxury hotel chain’s first U.K. venture. The 760,000-square-foot building, the area of nearly 16 American football fields, offers 120 rooms and suites alongside 85 Raffles-branded residences. The hotel interior was designed by Thierry Despont, and the residences were handled by 1508 London. Amenities include nine restaurants and three bars, as well as a day spa in collaboration with Guerlain. The iconic London building, built in 1906, once housed offices for Winston Churchill and more recently served as a filming location for James Bond films.
