The blaze made headlines last summer for sending plumes of black smoke into central London, just one week after the hotel completed what was billed as their most extensive – and expensive – restoration in more than a century.
After shutting down for renovations, the fire forced the hotel to shut down, once again, for major repairs. In December, public spaces including Dinner by Heston Blumenthal and Bar Boulud were reopened.
On April 15, all 181 guest rooms and suites opened to the public, ready to receive their first guests.
New additions include two penthouse suites which can be interconnected to create a single apartment-style suite including three bedrooms, three bathrooms, private dining room and two kitchens.
Suites feature everything from libraries stocked with books curated from historic London bookseller Heywood Hill, to yoga mats, GHD hair straighteners, Nespresso coffee makers and Miller Harris toiletries.
Renovations were overseen by designer Joyce Wang, who sought inspiration in the hotel’s royal heritage and the Golden Age of travel circa the early 20th century. Halls and suites feature bespoke pieces like hand-etched mirrors and custom-designed furniture.
