Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London re-opened in its entirety yesterday (15th April, 2019), having completed the most extensive restoration in its 117-year history. Following the re-opening of the public spaces in December 2018, the hotel now unveils all new guest rooms and suites, including two newly created expansive penthouse suites. Most accommodation offers exceptional views of leafy Hyde Park and the London skyline.
“Mandarin Oriental is enormously proud of the heritage of this historic hotel. The scope and intricate detail of this momentous renovation is designed to ensure this iconic London establishment is recognised as one of the finest hotels in the world. We look forward to welcoming our guests with kind and intuitive service that is truly British but reflective of our Oriental heritage,” said Amanda Hyndman, general manager and area vice president of operations.
Having hosted royal parties and glamorous events since the 1900s, the hotel's Ballroom and Loggia have also been lovingly restored to include 24-carat gilding of many original features. Both venues enjoy access from the park via the private Royal entrance. The renovation also includes a beautiful hand-painted Butterfly Terrace by artist Leah Wood, along with two new versatile meeting spaces, Asquith and Balfour, for private meetings and social soirees.
In celebration, the hotel has created a 'Be the First to Stay' package available from 15 April to 30 June 2019. Priced from £659, inclusive of VAT, the promotion includes daily breakfast, a bottle of Champagne on arrival, plus a daily credit (ranging from £75 to £250 depending on the room/suite category booked) to be used in the new Spa, Mandarin Bar, The Rosebery or Bar Boulud.
