Spanish group Meliá Hotels International has completed a five-year, £40 million project to reimagine its Meliá White House property.

Originally opened in 1999 and housed within a 1930s Grade II-listed building located at the southeast corner of Regent’s Park, the property has undergone a redesign of all 581 rooms and suites.

Renovations have also seen the hotel’s restaurant and bar repositioned to be directly accessible from the lobby area, with Arado Restaurant offering Mediterranean cuisine, and 35 Bar & Lounge featuring wine-red Rubelli velvet fabrics inspired by London’s love of theatre and musicals.

The Level lounge – reserved for those guests purchasing selected suite stays – has also been redesigned, with decor including aquamarine washed wood as a nod to its Mediterranean inspiration.

Meliá White House is one of three London properties operated by Melia Hotels International, the others being ME London (click here for our review published back in 2013), and Melia London Kensington Hotel, a rebranding of the former Rydges Kensington London.

“We are delighted to be able to finally reveal this five-year transformation, which has seen Meliá Hotels International invest £40 million into our flagship UK hotel.
