The Strand Palace Hotel
Having welcomed guests since 1909, the Strand Palace Hotel is set on the heart of the Strand, located just minutes from Covent Garden and the River Thames, making it the perfect location for guests looking to indulge themselves in the heart of London’s cultural scene.
Following months of meticulous planning, the Strand Palace Hotel is pleased to unveil the first of its newly refurbished guest rooms, now available to the public. The multi-million pound investment is set to firmly establish the property, with an unrivalled location in the heart of the capital, at the top of London’s 4-star inventory for years to come.
Trevillion Interiors Limited has worked with the Strand Palace Hotel for several years, working on the new designs that remain truthful to the hotel’s roaring twenties, art deco heritage but with a contemporary twist. Frances Blackham, Design Director at Trevillion Interiors Limited, said:
“We were delighted when the hotel gave us the opportunity to put a concept together for the bedroom design.
“The art deco heritage has influenced our design process, so what we have done is allowed art deco in its original format to influence our own thinking; we’ve thought about precise perpendicular lines, geometry ,colour palettes and added a little bit of glamour for the London lifestyle. And those elements have been integrated into a more contemporary approach.”
There were a total of 97 bedrooms refurbished by June 2018, with the initial release of Superior and Deluxe bedrooms in early March 2018 covering all rooms on the hotel’s ninth floor. The eighth floor was released in June, the seventh floor in September and further floors to follow suit. Even with so many bedrooms being refurbished, the designs are unique to each one. Frances said:
“You go from one room to another appreciating a real, defined difference .These rooms have very much got their own identity.”
In addition, the ground floor project will see the reception, concierge, and restaurant and bar areas transformed into a stylish hub in the heart of London. Taking place from the New Year to early summer 2019, the new public spaces are designed as aesthetically intriguing ‘Salons’ – emphasising the salon concept typical of a palace. The new public spaces have been designed for guests to enjoy as flexible lifestyle areas, where they can relax or work wherever they choose.
David MacRae, General Manager of the Strand Palace added:
“Ever since we first opened our doors in 1909, the Strand Palace has put the guest experience at the forefront of all we do. The new ground floor, along with the new guestrooms is set to offer our guests the best experience possible right here in the heart of London, and we are eager to reveal this project during early Summer 2019.”
The substantial update has seen the hotel take onboard the transformation of all 785 guestrooms, and the building’s façade. The majority of the newly refurbished guestrooms are now available to the public.
The entire hotel refurbishment is set to be completed by April 2020.
