Royal Lancaster London to Reopen This September

The Royal Lancaster London will launch in September 2017 following an £80 million renovation led by Studio PROOF. Upon completion, the mid-century hotel will reinstate its original name of ‘Royal Lancaster London’ (it had been called Lancaster London since 2009; prior to that it was The Royal Lancaster) in time for the hotel’s 50th Anniversary.

The projects encompass everything back-of-house (air condition, plumbing, electrics) as well as a complete renovation of the public spaces. The refurbished entrance façade and reception lobby will now have a brand-new staircase. Also include was the redesign of all 411 guestrooms and suites, new lifts to the 18 floors, and an external garden. Essentially, every area of the hotel will be brand new.

The lobby will be divided into a series of individual spaces, and will have a new bar. It will be decorated with white marble, gold, polished brass and bronze, and will utilize a restrained color pallet. The metals will also be applied to the exterior of the building.
