The 162-room property has collaborated with award-winning London-based architects and interior design practice Jestico + Whiles on a complete refurbishment of all accommodation, offering guests a new look, 'executed in a clean and contemporary style, leaning heavily on London Regency and Georgian reference points'.

Meeting facilities, which were themselves refurbished at the start of 2015, include five high-tech rooms across 563sqm of space. Improvements included the addition of magnetic, ‘write on’ moveable walls, concealed projector facilities, flatscreen TVs and state-of-the-art A/V systems operated via an in-house iPad.

Bedrooms include 20 split-level suites and the hotel's facilities feature a destination pan-Asian restaurant, Umami, cocktail bar and club lounge. The Crowne Plaza is also home to a one-acre garden overlooking the Victorian church of St Stephens.

Edward Bracken, general manager, Crowne Plaza Kensington, said: "Crowne Plaza Kensington is a testament to our commitment to create a home away from home in an area of our city that has a true neighbourhood feel at its heart. We aim to surprise our guests, offering above and beyond service and an amenity-rich hotel experience for visitors and residents alike. We are proud to offer a significant upgrade to our rooms and suites that now echo the essence of our DNA here at the hotel whilst retaining and adding a nod to the great heritage of the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea."
