London Marriot Hotel County Hall announces multi-million pound revamp
The 200-bedroom London Marriot Hotel County Hall in Westminster is renovating all its bedrooms and public spaces, to be completed by May 2016.
London landmarks are being integrated into the new design, including bowler hat prints on curtains and orange leather chairs echoing the building's historical purpose as a London council chamber. All suites will include bespoke wallpaper featuring a map of London in the 1920s, when the hotel building was opened.
The renovation of the rooms and publics spaces is expected to complete in May 2016, however many of the refurbished rooms will be available from this month.
Theresa Maw, general manager, said: "Our new rooms are at the forefront of hotel design and we believe they capture the subtle essence of great British style and echo our precious building's incredible history. Everything has been developed with a view to enhancing the experience and creating a relaxing and stimulating environment in the very centre of London."
Inspiration was taken from the architect Ralph Knott who designed wrought iron details in the entrance. The Art Deco style from the building's 1930 completion is mirrored in the new carpets and lighting.
Elizabeth Lane, designer at RPW Design who designed on the new interiors, said: "Through a careful exercise of understanding and re-incorporating architectural and historic details of the building, both architecturally and decoratively; the space at the Marriott County Hall has been significantly enhanced while maintaining its inherent distinctiveness."
Rooms at the London Marriott Hotel County Hall start from £300 per room including breakfast.
