A rich composition of materials, including lacquer, textured wood veneers and prismatic mirrors, will lend understated glamour to the interiors. Original features of the Edwardian Belle Époque building, such as the original carriageway entrance to the arrival courtyard and the grand Pavonazzo marble staircase rising over seven storeys within the property, will be retained. As a listed building, the façade and the interiors’ dark mahogany and rare marble will be carefully preserved while restored original marble columns in the lobby will be complemented by new stone and mosaic flooring.

The hotel will feature 11 event spaces, including a ballroom which will accommodate up to 435 guests and separate meetings and special events rooms for groups of 10 to 85.  Several, including the Chairman’s Boardroom and the Soane Boardroom, will showcase original architectural features such as the carefully preserved French walnut and Cuban mahogany-panelled fireplaces. A show kitchen will be featured in one of two private dining rooms.

Recreational facilities will include Sense spa, Rosewood’s signature spa brand, and a fitness suite.

The hotel’s central location on High Holborn: the City is close by while shopping areas and tourist attractions such as Covent Garden, the Royal Opera House, West End theatres, Hatton Garden, museums and galleries are all just a short walk away.
