The Strand Palace hotel in London has started work on a refurbishment of its ground floor spaces that is due to be completed this summer.

The project will see the transformation of the property’s reception, concierge, restaurant and bar (pictured) areas, with new public spaces designed around the concept of the ‘salons’ commonly found in palaces. Features will include Art Deco influences with bespoke carpets, light fittings and joinery.

A team room will offer a selection of loose-leaf teas and pastries, while the restaurant will feature a menu of British cuisine. The refurbishment will also see the addition of a private dining room within the restaurant that can be used for celebrations and meetings.

The latest refurbishment is part of a multi-million pound investment that has seen the Strand Palace transform all 785 guestrooms, as well as the building’s facade.

The total refurbishment project is due for completion by April 2020.

David MacRae, MD of the Strand Palace, said: “One hundred and eight years in the making, this new chapter of the Stand Palace is immensely exciting and will truly reflect our grand name. Ever since we opened in 1909, the Strand Palace has put the guest experience at the forefront of all we do. The new ground floor, along with the new guestrooms, is set to offer our guests the best experience possible right here in the heart of London, and we are eager to reveal this project during early summer 2019.”
