The Royal Garden Hotel in London’s Kensington district has become the latest property in the capital to undergo refurbishment ahead of next year’s Olympic Games.

The hotel says it has spent a total of £45 million of the project, with the final stage being the renovation of 154 rooms and suites on the first to fourth floors of the property.

The new-look rooms are decorated “in neutral calming shades and set off by rich fabrics”, with features including iPod docking stations, flatscreen TV and a media hub. All 394 rooms within the property have now been refurbished, along with the meeting and events spaces, two restaurants, three bars, and the hotel’s public areas.
