Bringing heritage and modernity together, JW Marriott Grosvenor House London’s multi-million dollar renovation elevates the property’s status
Legendary property JW Marriott Grosvenor House London has undergone a full-scale multi-million dollar incorporating a fresh take on present-day design while honoring the rich heritage of the property. 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.
JW Marriott Grosvenor House London’s complete renovation includes an extensive re-imagination of the ground floor, to complement the alluring views of Hyde Park. The décor, including butterfly wall art and bespoke carpets, incorporates a soft palette of neutrals with accents color that echo the changing seasons. The transformation of the original lobby fireplace includes floor-to-ceiling glass, which seamlessly connects the lobby entrance to the bright Park Room setting.
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.
Boasting one of the largest hotel event venues in Europe, JW Marriott Grosvenor House London features more than 5,000 square meters of flexible meeting space, perfect to host any event, large or small. The crown jewel of the hotel is the Great Room, which can cater for up to 2,000 guests in a single sitting, making it the ideal venue for award ceremonies and receptions. This iconic space was once an ice-skating rink, where young Princess Elizabeth (now Queen Elizabeth II) and her sister, Margaret, learned to ice skate. The refined Ballroom also incorporates the hotel’s history with cut glass chandeliers and Art Deco features.
An iconic property, JW Marriott Grosvenor House London is a must visit hotel!
