Guoman Hotels has finally opened its historic property – The Grosvenor hotel in London. The hotel, which started operating in 1862, is widely known as the oldest railway hotel in the capital of the UK. Finally the restoration works are finished and guests of this hotel can see it in its former glory. The hotel underwent a long renovation which lasted 18 months. The main aim of the restoration works was to revitalize the property while keeping its original look and architectural features.
The restoration groups were attentive to details. They renewed the original gold-leaf finish which had decorated the lobby’s columns, and reattached white marble parts on pillars. The guestrooms were also updated. Now the hotel has 346 rooms and new 3 suites. The suites feature private lounge area, rainfall shower, and heated bathroom floors.
The hotel has also received new food options. Now guests are welcome to visit not only well-known restaurants, but also Grand Imperial (the restaurant dedicated to Cantonese food) and Reunion bar. Lounge area is now suitable for afternoon tea and informal meetings, and new business facilities include 9 meeting rooms and a large room for 100 persons.
