Refurbished Four Seasons London At Park Lane Reopens Today

The luxury Four Seasons London at Park Lane reopens today after an extensive 2-year refurbishment inspired by the greenery of Hyde Park. Interior designer Pierre Yves-Rochon, who worked on the brand’s properties in Florence, Geneva, Paris and Washington DC, was responsible for the revamp to create chic interiors and a “country house” residential feel for the hotel.

 

The lobby gains new fireplaces, country scenes, horse imagery and statues, where rich fabrics, deep red and black leather, as well as Asian touches bring out the vibrancy of the space. On the guestroom floors, black and white images of 1950s fashion photography line the walls and the rooms contain images of London and the UK in various colour schemes and designs.

 

192 guestrooms, including 45 suites, feature lustrous walnut veneers, sycamore panels and tartan draperies that balance eclectic British sophistication with modern style. An entire floor is dedicated to the bright and airy Conservatories, where guests enjoy views of the city through the floor-to-ceiling windows and semi-private landscaped terraces. Guest feedback was carefully considered during the remodelling, where the closet space is generous and power outlets are conveniently located, in addition to luxury amenities such as luxury bedding, spacious marble bathroom with bespoke amenities created by famed perfumer Roja Dove, 42-inch LCD television with Blu-ray player, iPod docking station, workdesk, in-room safe and private bar.

 

Four Seasons London at Park Lane is destined to become one of London’s most fashionable venues for dining with Amaranto Restaurant, Bar and Lounge. Helmed by executive chef Adriano Cavagnini, guests can sample light Italian cuisine from the extensive a la carte menu in the warm surroundings, extending to a sun-filled glass conservatory and al fresco dining in the private garden at the restaurant. The lounge section is an ideal spot for light meals and the quintessential afternoon tea, while staff at the ‘club-like’ bar select and pour from a 250-bottle display of some of the world’s best vintages each evening.

 

Business travellers and meeting planners will have 796 square meters of cutting-edge meeting spaces, with natural lighting and the latest audio-visual equipment at their disposal. The sleek, streamlined ballroom seats 350 guests, while 7 high-tech function rooms cater to corporate meetings and intimate gatherings. The showpiece is a glass-walled executive boardroom boasting 180-degree views of Park Lane and Hyde Park.

 

The fitness and well-being of hotel guests is taken care of by the state-of-the-art tenth floor fitness center, with views of Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye, while a round of golf at the nearby Stoke Pages Golf Club can be arranged by the staff. In March 2011, the hotel will also open its luxury spa with panoramic 360-degree views and offering treatments from The Organic Pharmacy, ESPA and Omorovicza.

 

Four Seasons London at Park Lane joins its sister property, Four Seasons London at Canary Wharf, in the UK capital. Within the British Isles, the brand operates hotels in Hampshire and Dublin, Ireland. For more information, visit www.fourseasons.com.
