    The Mercure London Watford Hotel has announced the refurbishment of 100 of its 218 bedrooms. The extensive renovation includes the redesign of 100 classic bedrooms. Work on the renovation is well underway and is set to be complete by the end of March. The four star hotel’s bedroom renovation will cater well for the demand from the local corporate and consumer markets. Classic bedrooms include flat screen TV, complimentary high-speed WiFi, new beds with a Kayfoam King Koil mattress, and en-suite bathrooms with toiletries. In addition, there are also 20 Privilege Bedrooms, which feature everything guests could wish for to relax and unwind in style including complimentary unlimited movies, a Nespresso coffee machine, newspaper, robe and slippers.

    Interior designer Helen Hooper of HH Interiors, who has previously worked with Jupiter Hotels on renovation projects across the UK, comments on the project: “The design of the new bedrooms delivers a better hotel experience for guests. We’ve added in some local touches, such as the printed headboard, which is of an old scene taken in 1936 of the construction of the pedestrian subway under the Watford bypass where the hotel is situated. The colour scheme is based on an elegant and stylish grey palate to refresh the room making it more inviting and comfortable.”

    The hotel has a vast selection of event space on offer, with 12 meeting rooms available, and space for up to 200 delegates. Each offer complimentary high speed WiFi and there is parking available for up to 300 cars on site.

    Allan Porter the hotel’s General Manager commented: “We are incredibly excited about this project and the timing could not be more ideal, with a host of impressive events taking place over the next few months. This project will help elevate our quality offering to guests, as well as helping us to meet the demand for rooms in the town.”

    Situated close to Watford town centre and ideally located for the towns of St Albans, Hemel Hempstead, Elstree, Borehamwood and Radlett, the Mercure London Watford Hotel offers the perfect location for leisure and business travellers. Watford Junction station is two miles form the hotel, offering fast and easy access within 20 minutes of London.
