Helen Hooper of HH Interiors renovates Mercure Swansea's bedrooms

Mercure Swansea Hotel announced the refurbishment of 64 of its 120 bedrooms. The renovation includes the redesign of 64 bedrooms, bathrooms and bedroom corridors, as well as the rollout of new beds in all 120 bedrooms in the hotel.

With the renovation, the hotel’s classic bedrooms now include flat screen TV, complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi connectivity, new beds with a Kayfoam King Koil mattress and en-suite bathrooms with complimentary toiletries. In addition, there are also three Privilege Bedrooms, offering including complimentary unlimited movies, a Nespresso coffee machine, newspaper, robe and slippers.

Interior designer Helen Hooper of HH Interiors, who previously worked with Jupiter Hotels on renovation projects across the UK, was involved in the renovation of Mercure Swansea Hotel. According to Hooper, much of the design was inspired by the local area, with the addition of some local and historical touches such as the printed headboard, which is an engraved illustration depicting Swansea’s factories and ports from the 1800s. The color scheme is a mixture of soft greys and neutrals. The bedrooms each have a traditional Italian designer desk in American oak and acrylic, complimented by touches such as a full-length mirror with storage box and concealed hanging rail to give a spacious look.
