Gold hues, opulent furniture, and striking marble floors the refurbished Royal Lancaster London hotel is all glammed up thanks to a £80 million renovation that transformed the prestigious hotel into a splendid accommodation. The hotel still retained its old-world glamour, made doubly impressive by spectacular interiors and its prime address that gives guests a delightful view of Hyde Park just across the street.
“The new design exudes mid-century glamour and the understated elegance that is synonymous with London,” said General Manager Sally Beck. Every guestroom has a far-reaching view across the capital, especially its 893-square feet Signature Suite that will make you feel like a royal. Indulge in their Signature Afternoon Tea’s seasonal fruit tarts, freshly baked cupcakes, raspberry lollypops, and the best tea prepared by Executive Chef Ben Purton.
“Royal Lancaster London, which opened in 1967 as The Royal Lancaster, has paid witness to the transformation of London over the past half-century,” Beck added. The Royal Lancaster London hotel is known for its grand banquets that have hosted events attended by illustrious personalities such as Diana, Princess of Wales and other royalties, Mohammed Ali, and The Beatles, among others. Its posh halls also served as Michael Caine’s home in the classic film “The Italian Job.” royallancaster.com ◼
