Marriott Hotels has unveiled the revamped London Marriott Hotel County Hall following the completion of a multimillion-dollar transformation. Set on the South Bank, the property offers views of London that takes in the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, the River Thames and the London Eye.
Set at the foot of Westminster Bridge, the 206-room hotel features historic touches such as vaulted ceilings and wood-paneled chambers, as well as locally inspired accents to offer a sense of place, while smart technology enables flexibility.
Led by RPW Design, a hospitality interior design firm, the hotel’s reimagined interiors combine contemporary hotel design and luxurious functionality with inspiration from the heritage and elegance of the building. 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.
Among the furnishings, 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 pool, fine dining at Gillray’s Steakhouse & Bar, the Noes Lobby Champagne bar, the Leader’s Bar & outside terrace and afternoon tea in the Library Lounge. There is also a new executive lounge with riverside views and complimentary amenities.
