Park Lane hotel rebuilds

LONDON’S FOUR SEASONS hotel in Park Lane is now in the middle of a major rebuilding programme expected to be completed before the end of next year.  This follows recent upgrades for the nearby Grosvenor House and Intercontinental hotels.  What they all have in common is the same architectural team leading the project, ReardonSmith, also London-based.  For the Four Seasons, built as Inn on the Park in 1970, the building has been entirely stripped back to its structure, heralding a major upgrading of all services, substantial internal re-planning and a two-storey extension to the north-west elevation together with a rooftop extension.  Internally the hotel will be unrecognisable.  The eight floors of guestrooms are all being re-configured to achieve a wide range of bedrooms and suites, including 53 rooms providing a large wet room rather than a bathroom with tub.  There will be 20 Conservatory Suites and Guestrooms with four of the suites overlooking Hyde Park, each with a garden terrace.  The roof of the north-west extension will provide a magnificent terrace for what will be one of the most sought after suites in London, the Four Seasons London’s new Executive Suite. www.reardonsmith.com
