A multi-million pound refurbishment is being be carried out at the four-AA-star Bailey's hotel in London ahead of its relaunch in January 2016.
Millennium & Copthorne Hotels (M&C), owner and operator of the hotel, said the £7.5m project will mark the 175th anniversary of the birth of the hotel's eponymous founder, Sir James Bailey.
All 211 bedrooms are being redesigned, along with the reception, public areas, Olives restaurant and bar.
Clive Harrington, senior vice president operations Europe, M&C, said: "We are immensely proud of the transformation of the Bailey's hotel London and excited to enter this new phase in its history. This quintessentially British hotel is simply inspiring, with its rich heritage and beautiful new design."
The Bailey's hotel dates back to 1876 and was one of the very first purpose-built hotels in the capital. It is part of M&C's Leng's Collection of unique properties, which includes the five-AA-star, 158-suite Chelsea Harbour hotel.
