    The interiors of one of the Capital’s best located luxury hotels, London Marriott Hotel Park Lane, are to undergo a complete transformation with a new interior design scheme for all 151 guestrooms including five new suites, by RPW Design.RPW’s role in the complete repositioning of the five-star hotel which is housed within a Grade II listed property right in the heart of London’s Mayfair will also include the redesign of the lobby, executive lounge and meeting rooms. Work is due to begin next March and be completed by September 2014.

    The London Marriott Park Lane’s sensitive makeover will bring out the historic building’s more intimate character, with ‘townhouse’ inspired spaces which will offer a more residential feel and interventions such as replacing the traditional ‘counter’ style reception desk with two seated desks enabling the delivery of a more personal service. The two sets of stairs leading from the main entrance to the reception area will also be replaced with a single central stairway and additional informal but far more luxurious seating.

    The new guestroom concept marks a departure from the traditional corporate hotel room design towards something that feels more like a high end ‘home from home’. The new guestroom layouts all have entrance lobbies, thus improving the sense of arrival and the sense of space will be enhanced by a soft pastel colour palette of white, dove grey and shades of lavender. Materials such as leather, taupe silk, solid wood and marble have been used throughout so that the room exudes luxury and comfort.

    The new design has been trialled as a mock-up room and warmly received by brand representatives and guests from around the world including the Middle East, Russia and China, with their feedback suggesting minor design tweaks to be made which enhance the overall guest experience.

    “The redesign of the London Marriott Hotel Park Lane will return the interiors back in line with the exterior architecture, in some ways giving the building back to itself,” says RPW Design’s Managing Director Jan Wilson. “We will be bringing out the hotel’s inherent townhouse ambience with elegantly designed rooms and public spaces which have all the facilities expected in a traditional five-star hotel, and create a far warmer and more intimate atmosphere than what exists at the moment.”
