With its multi-million pound refurbishment now complete, The Grosvenor Hotel, Victoria is entering a new ‘golden age’ as it joins the Guoman collection of luxury London hotels.
Restored to its original Victorian splendour, the hotel is set to become one of the capital’s premier destinations for business travel, meetings and events.
The Grosvenor was the first of the great Victorian railway hotels. Opened in 1862, the unique history and heritage has been lovingly preserved as, 150 years later, The Grosvenor becomes the fifth member of the Guoman collection of deluxe London hotels.
Meeting new standards
The Grosvenor’s central location, adjoining London’s Victoria station and with direct access from the concourse, makes it a perfect choice for meetings and events.
Reflecting the hotel’s railway heritage, each of the nine rooms has been renamed after a famous train from around the world. The Belle Room, Scotsman Room and Pullman Boardroom have names familiar to generations of British rail travellers, while The Ghan Boardroom celebrates Australia’s legendary service between Adelaide and Darwin. The largest room, the Orient Suite, takes its name from the Orient Express.
Three of the rooms seat eight people, making them ideal for board meetings. A further five provide capacity for groups of between 10 and 20 delegates while the Orient Suite seats up to 110 guests for conferences, receptions and other larger functions. A dedicated Meeting and Events team is on hand at all times to provide advice and practical assistance.
All of The Grosvenor’s 346 Deluxe and Executive bedrooms have been completely refurbished. Fully air-conditioned, these spacious rooms, many affording excellent views over the London skyline, offer quiet, comfortable accommodation for business guests and delegates staying over.
Every Deluxe room boasts the finest Egyptian cotton bed linen, a 32” flat-screen television and Bose iPod docking station as standard, while Executive rooms offer additional benefits including a sofa and coffee table, and complimentary bathrobes, slippers and mineral water.
Feast your eyes
Grand Imperial is The Grosvenor’s new fine dining restaurant, serving exquisite Cantonese dim sum and seafood dishes. Decorated with authentic artwork and calligraphy, the restaurant also encompasses a private dining room adjacent to the restaurant, seating up to 26 guests.
The magnificent marble staircase in the lobby leads to the brand new Réunion Bar.
The entire Lounge and Brasserie area has been fully restored and is now a light, airy space, with décor inspired by travel’s Golden Age. Located just off the main lobby, they’re perfect for informal meetings, as well as drink or a meal through the day and into the evening.
And then there were five…
The Grosvenor is now formally part of the Guoman collection of luxury London hotels, alongside iconic hotels including the 5-star The Royal Horseguards - winner of AA London Hotel of the Year 2010-2011, The Cumberland, Charing Cross and The Tower.
