In what appears to have been a gas explosion, the Hyatt Regency London The Churchill has suffered some structural damage, and will be closed for at least the next few days.
Apparently all 500 guests were safely evacuated, with a handful of staff being treated for minor injuries.
The hotel is currently closed while the full extent of the damage is being determined.
I know many people took advantage of the recent discounted business class fares to book international travel for Thanksgiving weekend, so thought I’d pass this along.
If you have a reservation at the Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill this week:
Hyatt will provide alternate accommodations for those staying at Hyatt Regency Churchill in London, based on arrival date. If arriving at Hyatt Regency Churchill today, go to Raddison [sic] Blu, adjacent to Hyatt, and our staff will assist with alternate hotel.
If arriving at Hyatt Regency Churchill in London before Dec 1
@HyattConcierge will make new hotel arrangements for you. If arriving at Hyatt Regency Churchill in London after Dec 1, we’ll honor your stay at our hotel or at another hotel once we know more.
Glad to hear everyone is safe, and can’t imagine how scary that must have been!
