The Lowndes Hotel in London, part of Dubai-based Jumeirah, has closed its doors to undergo a US $14 million refurbishment programme. Set in Knightsbridge, The Lowndes Hotel in Belgravia Village is scheduled to re-open in October 2006 when it will be rebranded as Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel. “The extensive refurbishment will give The Lowndes Hotel a fresh, more contemporary appearance, without changing the classic, intimate feel of the property. By updating our well loved property we will be able to offer better services and amenities for our loyal guests, as well as introduce ourselves to a new breed of traveller seeking a sense of well-being and tranquillity,” said Jane Renton, general manager of The Lowndes Hotel. “During the closure, we will continue to support our team of dedicated colleagues via alternative employment options within Jumeirah, to ensure the hotel’s unique personality is retained.” Among the highlights of the renovation will be the addition of a new sixth floor, which will be dedicated to suites. The new floor will feature four one-bedroom suites with sofa beds and five junior suites. The nine new suites, themed in blue, silver and grey shades, will bring the total number of guest rooms at The Lowndes Hotel to 87, of which 14 will be suites. In addition to the new floor and the refurbishment of the hotel’s existing guest rooms, the lobby area will be completely remodelled with an art-deco influence, oak features and limestone flooring. The reception and concierge desks will be completely re-designed; adjoining the glass-enclosed Belgrave Bar, serving meals, snacks and cocktails.
