Back in December 2013, The Lanesborough London shuttered for a major overhaul. This month the luxury hotel on Hyde Park Corner opens its doors as part of the prestigious Oetker Collection. In taking over management for this London landmark, Oetker Collection CEO Frank Marrenbach has said in a previous statement that "The Lanesborough will be the perfect sister hotel to Le Bristol Paris, offering two major luxury establishments on each side of the Channel."
The highly anticipated reopening sees the full refurbishment of the 93 rooms and suites in an elegant Regency style with all the latest technology. Pictured above at top: The bedroom of one of the Buckingham Suites, which offer vistas over the Buckingham Palace gardens.
The dining outlets were also updated, and in big culinary news, Céleste restaurant is helmed by Executive Chef Florian Favario, protégé of Michelin three-starred chef Eric Frechon (who heads Le Bristol’s restaurants in Paris).
In a unique offering for London, all of the hotel’s guests are privy to 24-hour butler service. The Lanesborough London had a soft opening on July 1, and all rooms and suites will be available for booking starting July 15.
