Taking place from the New Year to early summer of 2019, the Strand Palace Hotel's ground floor project will see the reception, concierge, restaurant and bar areas transformed into a stylish hub in the heart of London.

The new public spaces are designed as aesthetically intriguing ‘Salons’ – emphasising the salon concept typical of a palace.

Subtle Art Deco influences are integrated into a contemporary design detail and sophisticated colour palette, with bespoke carpets, light fittings and joinery all carefully showcased within a serene, light and uplifting environment, creating a relaxed and tranquil atmosphere. The new public spaces have been designed for guests to enjoy as flexible lifestyle areas, where guests can relax or work wherever they choose.

An inviting tea room with rich art deco finishes will see guests while away the afternoon whilst enjoying loose leaf teas and delicate tea pastries in true English style. The restaurant will champion modern British cuisine and the addition of a private dining room, set in a beautiful rich hue of blue provides a space perfect for celebrations or private meetings.

“One hundred and eight years in the making, this new chapter of the Strand Palace is immensely exciting and will truly reflect our grand name," says David MacRae, Managing Director of the Strand Palace.

“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 is part of a multi-million pound investment that has seen the hotel take onboard the transformation of all 785 guestrooms, and the building’s façade. The majority of the newly refurbished superior and deluxe guestrooms are now available to the public.

The entire hotel refurbishment is set to be completed by April 2020.
