The property refurbished all 10 of its floors, including the bedrooms and suites, and also made the decision to transform the hotel’s top real-estate – The Penthouse – into ‘The View’, a members-style club accessible to hotel guests only.
The renovation work was handled Martin Hulbert, which focused on implementing Mayfair’s heritage into the property whilst also keeping the “contemporary, discerning traveller in mind”.
GM Bernard Murphy said: “We have breathed new life into the art deco walls of The Athenaeum, but respectfully retained all of the English quirks and oddities that made her great.
“We want guests to rediscover The Athenaeum – our restaurant, created by Michelin-starred Galvin brothers, our award-winning bar team – and all the hidden treasures of Mayfair. And when they do, we want them to enjoy an unexpected and surprising experience; surprisingly good.”
