Dukes Collection to refurbish London hotel

The five-star Dukes London in Mayfair will undergo a multi-million pound overhaul from November 2016.

The hotel’s meeting rooms will be the first to undergo a revamp, followed by a number of bedrooms, suites, and public areas, including the Drawing Room. Leading luxury British brands will work to recreate the popular Duchess Rooms which are aimed at solo female travellers, while maintaining the quintessential British feel of Dukes.

Executive head chef, Nigel Mendham, will head up a new all-day casual dining concept as part of a fresh food and beverage offering at the hotel. It is anticipated that the refurbishment will be completed by spring 2017.

Managing director of Dukes Collection, Debrah Dhugga said: "At Dukes London we understand that to remain at the forefront of the luxury hotel industry, maintaining standards is absolutely essential. This multi-million-pound renovation will be the biggest investment the hotel has seen in decades. Our aim of the refurbishment is to enhance and enrich what our guests know and love about the Dukes experience, whilst maintaining our award-winning five-star service and attention to detail that the hotel is so well-known for."
