Marriott Hotels celebrated the grand re-opening of one of its most iconic properties in the UK, 3 November, following a multi-million pound transformation of London Marriott Hotel County Hall on London’s South Bank.
“Marriott Hotels has consistently pushed the boundaries of innovation in travel to create experiences that inspire and push our guests’ creativity. London Marriott County Hall is the perfect combination of historic charm and intuitive design,” said Matthew Carroll, vice-president, Marriott Hotels.
Set at the foot of Westminster Bridge, the 206-room hotel building has borne witness to many important moments of London history. 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.
The hotel’s general manager, Govert Deketh, said: “Our transformation perfectly captures the essence of great British style whilst also delivering an elevated and modern hotel experience. That together with our building’s incredible history and our exceptional riverside views now places us as one of the most sought after properties in London.”
The hotel is marketing itself as a destination, and facilities include what Marriott claims is the biggest hotel pool in London. For business and Marriott Rewards members there is also a new Executive Lounge in addition to the hotel’s 10 meeting rooms.
In September, Marriott Hotels announced a partnership with TED and London Marriott Hotel County Hall recently hosted one of the five global TED Fellows salons series.
The renovations have come at a price, however. Rooms at the London Marriott Hotel County Hall start from £325 per room including breakfast.
