Banquet tables arranged in Gladstone Library at Guoman Hotels


One Whitehall Place was originally built as the home of the National Liberal Club. Its founder was William Gladstone, four times British Prime Minister, whose name lives on here in the Gladstone Library. Though the 30,000 volumes that line the shelves today are faithful replicas, the room is otherwise just as he would have known it, including the gantry giving access to the upper levels, which now serves as a minstrel’s gallery.

One of the finest conference rooms in the heart of London City
With space to seat 280 people theatre-style, and the superb choice of dining options you’d expect from a 5-star London hotel, it’s an inspiring setting for any occasion. Interconnected to The Reading and Writing room, the two rooms in total can house up to 550 guests. Perfect for networking events, cocktail receptions or launches. Alternatively, one room can be used for exhibitions and catering whilst the other is perfectly suited for a sit down event.

The Gladstone Library offers 343 square metres of space and enjoys high ceilings, natural daylight, air-conditioning and wireless internet access. The hotel can provide staging to cater for all types of event, and our in-house AV company can provide on-site technicians as required. The whole area is accessible for wheelchair users.
