Grosvenor House in London Completes Renovation

The world-famous Grosvenor House in London, a JW Marriott hotel, has completed a multi-million dollar renovation.

Directed by Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) and GA Design, the complete transformation of the hotel’s guest rooms and public spaces incorporates a fresh take on present-day design while honoring the rich heritage and location of the property.

Modeled after stately homes throughout the country, the Park Room features floor-to-ceiling glass windows that emphasize uninterrupted and magnificent views of Hyde Park. Fringed chairs and floral décor provide playful illusions to the hotel’s past. Guests can indulge in the award-winning Afternoon Tea, served alongside homemade pastries, or taste the exclusive Yellow Rose tea or Serpentine Gin, both concocted specifically for the hotel using plants found in Hyde Park. Thoughtful live piano entertains guest daily from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Click to enlarge.

The former home of the Duke of Gloucester, Grosvenor House has commanded a notable location on Park Lane since opening its doors in 1929. Originally designed by famed architects L. Rome Guthrie and Sir Edwin Lutyens, the hotel has long been associated with royalty, international dignitaries and celebrities alike.

 Serving as one of London’s main social hubs, Grosvenor House has hosted many significant and extravagant occasions including the Royal Caledonian Ball, The Russian Debutante Ball and, for the past 68 years, the hotel has been the official host of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Awards.

“Throughout the 90 years of its legacy, JW Marriott Grosvenor House London has played a role, whether large or small, in the history of this well-beloved city,” said Stuart Bowery, General Manager, JW Marriott Grosvenor House London. “This year, following significant transformations, our truly iconic hotel begins an exciting new chapter. We look forward to welcoming our guests as we head into the next decade and hope they feel inspired and fulfilled.”
