Just in time for the Olympics the London Waldorf, off The Strand, has completed a £3.4m overhaul of 100 guest rooms. The recent refurbishment is part of a larger £11.5m hotel-wide redevelopment that has seen the Adelphi Suite and Good Godfrey’s bar restored back to their elegant 1920s art deco style.
The guest rooms and en-suites have undergone a complete make-over, with state-of-the-art contemporary facilities and amenities incorporated into the sophisticated art deco appearance of the rooms in keeping with the character and Edwardian heritage of the historic hotel.
Peter Beckwith, General Manager said: “The newly refurbished rooms use the charm and character of the 104-year-old hotel to their advantage, providing guests with a unique and elegant place to call home whilst visiting the city. We want to provide a traditionally British experience and aim to offer a slice of the rich history the hotel has to offer to our guests”.
The renovation is part of a larger scope of major projects by individual hotels above standard annual capital expenditures across the global portfolio of Hilton Hotels & Resorts, the flagship brand of Hilton Worldwide. Beginning in 2011, the projects currently total more than US$3bn during a three-year period. www3.hilton.com/en/hotels/united-kingdom/the-waldorf-hilton-london
