Hotels need to renovate once in a while if they want to maintain their properties and keep up with modern demands. The Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park is the latest London hotel to update their look.
The luxury hotel’s renovations will begin next month, on September 19th. The refurb is their first major project since 2000, when the hotel first reopened. There are big plans for the new look, which will be implemented over 18 months in two separate phases.
The first phase of the multi-million pound renovation focuses on the bedrooms, in particular the ones that face the street. The Rosebery coffee lounge and Bar Boulud will also get a facelift.
This first phase will be complete in spring 2017, after which the second phase will begin. This will involve the restaurant Dinner by Heston Blumenthal being revamped, along with the Mandarin bar, event spaces, spa, and the remaining guestrooms, which face Hyde Park.
The ninth floor of the hotel will also receive two new penthouses. They will feature floor-to-ceiling windows looking out onto the park.
The new look at Mandrian Oriental Hyde Park has been inspired by the “golden age of travel” – a similar theme to the “golden age of the cruise liner” that inspired Mondrian London’s design.
They will be overseen by Joyce Wang, who recently worked on suites at the Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong, and Adam Tihany who has previously worked with Heston Blumenthal and Daniel Boulud.
