MKV Design adds modern updates to Art Deco-inspired Park Lane Hotel

The former Park Lane Hotel will be rebranded as the Sheraton Grand London Park Lane this October.

The former Park Lane Hotel will be rebranded as the Sheraton Grand London Park Lane this October, following a redesign. First opened in 1927, the revamped hotel still has its Art Deco design, though it was given modern updates by London-based firm MKV Design.

When the property opens, there will be updated furnishings that reference the building’s heritage through curved forms, polished cabinetry, decorative lighting and carpeting. As the city’s first hotel boasting en suite bathrooms, the remaining original marble bathrooms were preserved and upgraded.

In addition to the refreshed 303 guestrooms, 43 Sheraton Club rooms will be offered with access to the Sheraton Club Lounge. The hotel’s 21 suites were reoriented to maximize space and offer enhanced views of nearby Green Park. The Grand suite will be completed with an entrance lobby, master bedroom and bathroom, living and dining areas, a study and guest powder room. Each room will be connected through double-width sliding pocket doors that will allow for the entire suite to be opened into one space.
