The Royal Garden Hotel

Kensington High Street, London W8

CGL has completed the refurbishment of the five-star luxury Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington. The Royal Garden Hotel is a 1960s Richard Seifert designed building, situated in a prime location next to Kensington Palace, overlooking Hyde Park. With fantastic views across to the City of London, this five-star luxury hotel is designed as a ‘destination location’.

Prior to its ownership by the Goodwood Hotel Group, the hotel underwent considerable refurbishment in the 1980s and as such was in need of a modernisation to ensure it remained at the forefront of the luxury hotel market.

CGL’s brief was to create clean, contemporary and sophisticated spaces to the bedrooms and common areas such as the conference suites, lobby, function suites and ground floor restaurant in a 2-3 year phased programme. In the main bedrooms, the concept looked at limiting the amount of free standing elements in the smaller rooms and using the wall spaces to form desk, seating and media areas. The team also developed designs for the desk and window seat that allow the guest to feel part of the view.

The suites have been designed to offer maximum flexibility for guests and incorporate a more sophisticated feel.
