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.
The hotel is one of a raft of properties opening or being refurbished in London ahead of the 2012 Olympic Games.
W Hotels opened its first London property in Leicester Square in February, while the Four Seasons London at Park Lane reopened in January after a two-year refurbishment. The Savoy unveiled its £220 million revamp late last year.
Kempinski’s The Stafford unveils its revamp this month, and the boutique Eccleston Square hotel will follow open in Pimlico this year. Bulgari Hotels will also open its first London property in Knightsbridge towards the end of the year.
