Additional Information
The premises were taken over by the Royal Navy and became hms Shrapnel until September 1946.
It's believed Winston Churchill and Dwight Eisenhower met up at the building during this time and discussed plans for the d-Day invasion in one of the small public rooms on the first floor. The room is open to visitors.
Many Hollywood stars stayed there. The hotel was a major draw to the constant traffic of the rich and famous who passed through the city to use the numerous liners. The hotel's guest book would no doubt have been a sprawling checklist of who's who, including names such as Laurel and Hardy, Charlie Chaplin, Rex Harrison, and Amy Earhart. It's even said that Tom Mix, Hollywood's first Western star, rode a horse through the foyer.
