Built as a department store for Marshall and Snelgrove.  Converted in 1970, by the architectural practice of Ted Levy, Benjamin and Partners, into a hotel.  The conversion included the addition of a mansard roof.  In 2011 there are retail outlets at street level.  An O2 branch sits in the location of the former Marshall and Snelgrove entrance.  The Britannia Hotel, offering 214 bedrooms, occupies the upper floors.  Its entrance is on the side down an alleyway.
