London Mandarin Oriental returns

Just under a year since being ravaged by fire and forced to close, the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London has re-opened in its entirety after completing the most extensive restoration in its 117-year history.

Following the re-opening of the public spaces last December, the hotel has now unveiled all its new guestrooms and suites, including two newly-created expansive penthouse suites.

General manager and area vice-president of operations Amanda Hyndman said: “Mandarin Oriental is enormously proud of the heritage of this historic hotel. The scope and intricate detail of this momentous renovation is designed to ensure this iconic London establishment is recognised as one of the finest hotels in the world.”

Designer Joyce Wang has overseen the redesign of the 181 guestrooms and suites, along with the creation of the hotel’s new penthouses, taking inspiration from the hotel’s parkside location and the early 20th century’s Golden Age of travel.

The 40 suites range in size from the smallest, at 47sq m within the turrets of the hotel, to the largest – the new three-bedroom Mandarin Oriental Penthouse with private terraces, at 444sq m.
