Grosvenor House’s redesign

OPENED June 21st, 2016

Grosvenor House’s redesign is a welcome modernisation for the heritage London hotel. Popular with celebs, the hotel is part of the Marriott chain. The new-look public areas have been designed to celebrate the hotel’s rich history and enhance its sense of place, in relation to neighbouring Hyde Park. £8 million has been invested on the new look, which follows the refurbishment of 450 bedrooms.

The refurbishment takes inspiration from Hyde Park, so airy spaces and natural light are key.

In the foyer, a rich marble floor with brass detailing opens up to mirrored reception desks. The previous dark timber paneling has been replaced with a modern glass fireplace.

The lounge area, The Park Room, has also been revamped. A calming colour scheme plays on nature and light. The palette features greens, grey and creams. Another reason for the renovation was to make The Park Room a destination in its own right.

A large function space titled The Great Room has also been redesigned. It’s a popular space for gala dinners. Stalwart in-house restaurant, JW Steakhouse, remains relatively unscathed.

Individual meeting rooms have also been treated as a part of Grosvenor House’s redesign. New carpets intertwine a leafy lattice design leading to restrooms. These feature black and cream marble and velvet upholstery.

Owned by Marriott, the hotel is currently subject to a $1.3billion bid. It’s in from a Saudi consortium and may spark a bidding war with a Qatar investor.

Mayfair is renowned for exclusivity and high-end hotels, and Marriott owns a total of four hotels in the area. It’s on the doorstep of Hyde Park, one of London’s largest green spaces.

The Grosvenor House redesign project was taken on by high-end design firm The Gallery HBA. The firm has also completed projects including the Hilton Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and Hotel Alfonso Xlll in Seville.
