RPW Design leads redesign of London Marriott Hotel County Hall

The renovation focused on contemporary guestroom design, local influences, stylish public areas and new technology.

Marriott Hotels reopened the London Marriott Hotel County Hall following a major renovation. Set on the South Bank, the property has views of London landmarks, including the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, River Thames and the London Eye.

The redesigned hotel is said to signal the evolution of Marriott Hotels, with a focus on contemporary guestroom design, local influences, stylish public areas and new technology.

Set at the foot of Westminster Bridge, the 206-room hotel has historic touches, such as vaulted ceilings and wood-paneled chambers, as well as locally inspired accents. Led by RPW Design, a hospitality interior design firm, the hotel’s reimagined interiors combine contemporary hotel design with the heritage of the building.

All suites have upgraded bathroom facilities, entrances with tiled mosaic flooring and bespoke wallpaper featuring a historic map of London from the era of the building’s infancy.

Among the furnishings, the orange chairs pay homage to the seating used in the chamber of the former London County Council, while bowler hat prints on curtain fabrics echo London’s business culture.

Amenities at the property include a health club with a pool, dining at Gillray’s Steakhouse & Bar, Noes Lobby Champagne bar, Leader’s Bar, outside terrace and the Library Lounge. There is also a new executive lounge with riverside views, as well as 10 event and meeting rooms.
