Set on London’s South Bank, County Hall offers guests an unparalleled panoramic view of London that takes in the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, the River Thames and the London Eye.
“Marriott Hotels has consistently pushed the boundaries of innovation in travel to create experiences that inspire and push our guests’ creativity,” says Matthew Carroll, vice president, Marriott Hotels. “London Marriott County Hall is the perfect combination of historic charm and intuitive design.”
Led by RPW Design, one of the world’s leading hospitality interior design practices, the hotel’s reimagined interiors combine contemporary hotel design and luxurious functionality with inspiration from the heritage and elegance of the building.
Based on guest feedback, locally-inspired accents offer a sense of place, while smart technology enables guests to use the room flexibly.
All suites include upgraded bathroom facilities, entrances with tiled mosaic flooring and bespoke wallpaper featuring a historic map of London from the era of the building’s infancy.
Sumptuous soft furnishings and subtle plays on iconic London landmarks are featured throughout, including tasteful tributes to the building’s history – for example the orange chairs pay homage to the seating used in the chamber of the former London County Council and bowler hat prints on curtain fabrics echo London’s business culture.
A destination in itself, the hotel offers a unique experience with facilities that include a health club with a 25-metre pool (the biggest hotel pool in London), fine British dining at Gillray’s Steakhouse & Bar, the Noes Lobby Champagne bar, the Leader’s Bar & outside terrace and delicious afternoon tea in the Library Lounge.
For business and Marriott Rewards members there is also a new Executive Lounge with riverside views and complimentary amenities. The hotel also boasts 10 event and meeting rooms with the option to book private dining events in exceptionally historic surroundings.
