Marriott International will debut its wellness brand Westin Hotels & Resorts in the United Kingdom, the company announced Wednesday.

Slated to open in 2020, the Westin London City will boast panoramic views over the River Thames. As part of the redevelopment of the former Queensbridge House site, the property stretches from Queenhithe Dock and runs north to south, bridging across Upper Thames Street. 

The hotel's 220 guest rooms, including 29 suites and Presidential Suite, will feature a nature-inspired design along with Westin's signature Heavenly Bed and Heavenly Bath amenities.

The biophilic-designed lobby will lead into a riverside bar and restaurant. There will also be an indoor swimming pool, 4,000 square foot spa and WestinWORKOUT fitness studio complete with TRX exercise equipment on site, as well as an independently operated destination restaurant. For the business and meetings market, 8900 square feet of meeting and event space will be available, including a Junior Ballroom and four meeting rooms, as well as a 24-hour business center.
