The suites, which can be hired for a minimum of three months, are designed to offer corporate groups a dedicated centre for long-term training.

Following a £6m refurbishment, the hotel has installed the latest technology in all bedrooms and meeting rooms, to ensure the space is conducive to conferences and events.

Diane Tapner-Evans, general manager of the hotel, said the property had witnessed an increased demand for training spaces, in line with the trend towards experiential learning and development initiatives. "We’ve been encouraged by several companies who are keen to capitalise on our contract hire spaces by taking the opportunity to replicate and bring to life their own environment, at the same time as reducing their fixed asset and training delivery costs."

She added that the rooms gave delegates the option of a training centre close to central London.
