Oetker Collection is pleased to announce the anticipated re-opening of The Lanesborough in London. This iconic hotel will be welcoming its first guests from 1st July, 2015. All rooms and suites will be available for booking from the 15th July, preceded by an initial soft opening period with room and restaurant reservations on a request basis.
The Lanesborough will reopen following an extensive renovation project that will see it regain its position as London’s finest residence. The refurbishment extends to all areas of the hotel; the 93 guest rooms, including 43 suites, and all public areas.
Philippe Perd, Senior Vice President Operations and Project Development Oetker Collection, comments:“This announcement marks an important milestone in the lead up to the opening, drawing a close to the renovation project.”
The Lanesborough is managed by Oetker Collection, the prestigious portfolio of ‘masterpiece hotels” including Le Bristol Paris, Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in the South of France and Brenners Park-Hotel & Spa in Baden-Baden, amongst others.
Frank Marrenbach, CEO Oetker Collection adds: “With its strategic location in the heart of London, The Lanesborough, with managing director Geoffrey Gelardi at its helm is a prestigious addition to our portfolio, a major step for our development, and a natural complement to Le Bristol Paris, its sister hotel.”
Following The Lanesborough’s closure in December 2013, the hotel was taken back to its shell and meticulously transformed by Alberto Pinto, the world renowned interior design studio.
Guestroom accommodation will be the epitome of elegance, reminiscent of a grand residence, with The Royal Suite reinstated as the hotel’s largest suite complete with seven bedrooms.
Céleste, the restaurant of The Lanesborough will unveil an elegant new design, returned to the Regency style in-keeping with the rest of the hotel. In these superb facilities, Eric Frechon, Paris’ most esteemed three Michelin star chef and leading figure at Le Bristol Paris brings his protégé Florian Favario as executive chef. The Garden Room will resume its position as the capital’s most glamourous cigar lounge and The Library Bar as one of London’s leading bars. Seven carefully and individually designed private dining rooms will offer some of the most refined event spaces London has to offer.
The renovation honours the building’s architectural heritage as one of London’s most revered Regency landmarks. It embodies the signature style that has become synonymous with The Lanesborough, whilst incorporating the latest in contemporary luxury and technological innovations.
Opening room rates start from £715 including VAT per room per night.
