As part of a miltimillion pound top-to-bottom renovation, G.A Design has been tasked to usher London Hilton on Park Lane into a new design era.

Starting with the rooms and suites, the iconic Mayfair hotel, which opened in 1963, will transform its image to unveil a cohesive, contemporary and clean design narrative.

A new lobby layout will enhance guests’ arrival at the hotel, providing a breathtakingly open, bright and welcoming space with seating and a brand-new lobby bar. The elegant new bar will be a joyful take on modern London living, celebrating artistry and craft and serving up classic cocktails reflective of the hotel’s heritage.

The exceptionally designed rooms and suites will maximise the hotel’s unparalleled panoramic views over London and Hyde Park with natural materials and colour schemes, giving a nod to the glamour of the 1960s with low slung furniture, soft edges and cutting-edge design.

The ground floor restaurant will also be renovated and relaunched offering modern British eating and drinking which champions an elevated local, seasonal and responsible approach to dining. In honour of its position on the edge of Hyde Park, the largest of central London’s Royal Parks, the new restaurant’s interiors will reflect the natural world, using noble materials such as travertine and bronze with a colour scheme of greens, natural, and fresh tones.

The iconic Park Lane hotel has hosted more than 11 million guests since its opening in 1963. Opened by Conrad Hilton himself, it was the largest hotel in Europe at the time, standing at 100 metres high. Every year, it hosts more than 200,000 guests in its 453 rooms. The refurbishment is the most significant since opening.

What’s more, the hotel is planning to remain open throughout the renovation, which will be completed in stages to minimise disruption to guests. With Park Lane being at the epicentre of luxury hospitality in London, we are expecting quite the transformation.
