I think the plans are at an early/formative stage - see James' news story and the link to the Irish newspaper.
I agree that this beautiful listed building is "underused" by the general public, but I fail to see how yet another boutique hotel would afford access to the general public, a lot of whom wouldn't be able to afford to stay at such a hotel. Why deform a beautiful old building just to line someone's pockets?
Slightly off-piste, but driving up BHS to get to Clink Street
tonight, it struck me just how much the skyline has changed in recent years. All these bits of glass(I'm thinking of the new NI building, contrasted with the Shard and the horrible amends to London Bridge station) are turning the place into Canary Wharf - a place with no soul. I preferred it as it was.
