Marriott International has completed a multi-million dollar “full scale renovation” of its JW Marriott Grosvenor House London property.
Located on Park Lane in London’s Mayfair district, the 494-room hotel embarked on a four-year renovation project back in 2015, and Business Traveller reviewed the property following the refurbishment of its executive lounge and suites.
Renovation works were overseen by Hirsch Bedner Associates and GA Design, and have been completed in time to celebrate the hotel’s 90th anniversary this year.
The ground floor of the property has been reimagined “to complement the alluring views of Hyde Park”, with décor including butterfly wall art and bespoke carpets, and redesigned guest rooms “take cues from autumn in Hyde Park with rich golden leaves layered over the soft grey carpet to create depth and add warmth”.
The hotel’s originally lobby fireplace has also been transformed, with floor-to-ceiling glass connecting the lobby entrance to the property’s Park Room, where Afternoon Tea is served.
Facilities include JW Steakhouse with a private dining room for up to 12 guests, Bourbon Bar with over 300 rare, pre-prohibition single batch bourbons, cocktail venue the Red Bar, fine dining restaurant Corrigan’s Mayfair, and the hotel’s most recent eatery Ruya London offering “a taste of contemporary dishes from the Anatolian region”.
The property also features over 5,000 sqm of events space, including the Great Room which can cater for up to 2,000 guests.
Commenting on the news Mitzi Gaskins, Global Brand Leader of JW Marriott, said:
“The reintroduction of the iconic JW Marriott Grosvenor House London signifies an exciting milestone as the property celebrates its ninetieth anniversary this year.
“We are thrilled to welcome our guests to the new Grosvenor House where they will continue to enjoy the highest level of luxury, inclusive of enriching experiences and warm, intentional service that embodies the JW Marriott brand.”
