One of London’s most prestigious properties, the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington, has selected WORLDHOTELS as its strategic partner for global marketing, sales and distribution and will join the group’s portfolio on April 1 2010. The new partnership also reflects the hotel’s updated image which is accompanied by extensive refurbishment and redesign activities that encompass its changing direction.
The Royal Garden Hotel, overlooking Kensington Gardens, offers 5-star luxury and service without the stuffiness. Stylish rooms, a hotel spa, two award-winning restaurants, 10 meeting rooms and an events venue make it one of the best value 5-star hotels in London.
Having already completed several major changes, the Royal Garden Hotel will see further modernisation and redesign to be completed by April 2010. The recently reopened hotel lobby ensures a memorable welcome upon arrival. The contemporary, modern feel can be seen on the 10th floor in the critically acclaimed Min Jiang restaurant and in the bedrooms and suites on the seventh, eighth and ninth floors which are now decorated in a palette of neutral calming shades, complimented with rich fabrics. New features include iPod docking stations and media hubs. Modernisation work is currently underway on the fifth and sixth floors to continue the phasing-in of the contemporary designed bedrooms.
The Park Terrace, the hotel’s other restaurant, is undergoing a complete refurbishment. The new destination venue will benefit from a window-lined wall offering seamless views of the Park beyond, as well as chic seating, a central bar and updated menu.
Also newly-refurbished are the hotel’s conferencing and banqueting rooms. The hotel’s 10 private function rooms offer state-of-the-art facilities from high-end technology specifications to impeccable catering.
Graham Bamford, General Manager of the Royal Garden Hotel, said: “We are looking forward to benefit from the wide range of sales, marketing, e-commerce and technology assets that WORLDHOTELS has to offer. Our guests will enjoy the same incentives that the large chains offer, for example frequent flyer miles from 17 airline programmes, which will give the Royal Garden Hotel an additional competitive edge.”
This latest addition follows WORLDHOTELS’s recent partnership with UK hotel brand City Inn and emphasises the importance of the UK market for WORLDHOTELS and its ambitions to further expand its portfolio within the UK.
“We are proud to have one of London’s most revered five-star hotels join our portfolio”, commented Robert Hornman, Managing Director of WORLDHOTELS. “We are especially excited to support the Royal Garden Hotel during its extensive redesign project and in creating a new globally-acclaimed image.”
