The historic hotel – which first opened in 1963 - will reopen with a contemporary design and 379 newly refurbished rooms including 54 premier suites.

New meeting spaces include four executive boardrooms, in addition to the hotel's ballroom, for up to 160.

A new fitness centre and spa will also launch, as well as the hotel's revamped restaurant.

The hotel's redevelopment is part of an ambitious £618m ($1bn) investment programme at the Loews Hotels & Resorts group, which has included the acquisition of three properties in North America – the Loews Boston Hotel, the Loews Madison Hotel, located in the centre of Washington, DC moments away from the White House, and the Loews Hollywood Hotel, synonymous with the Oscars in Hollywood Boulevard.

Loews also plans to open a Chicago hotel in 2015.
