Taj Hotels unveils newly refurbished Premium Rooms at St. James’ Court
St James’ Court in Westminster, operated by Taj Hotels, has officially launched its newly renovated rooms at the Almoners Townhouse as part of a multi-million pound refurbishment.
In accordance with the hotel’s commitment to ‘reinventing tradition’, the renovation complements the English Classics, Reinvented series, which gives literary classics a new lease of life as Taj partners with contemporary British artists to create a selection of limited edition covers for the UK’s best loved tales.
Embodying the magnetism of the unique location, the new premium rooms have been infused with the modern influence of present-day London, whilst maintaining comfort and convenience, rooted in the hotel’s legacy, providing guests with a welcoming retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city.
The award-winning hospitality and residential architects and interior designers, Dexter Moren Associates, alongside interior design consultant Sue Freeman, are carrying out the entirety of the project, working to create an equilibrium between the historic design features and a fresh contemporary finish.
Among the spaces completed in May are the guest rooms located in Almoners townhouse. Following a nine-month refurbishment, the renovated areas boast the perfect blend of heritage and contemporaneity; Taj’s historic design features marry with a bold, contemporary finish, reminiscent of a modern townhouse. The use of pale hues accentuates the abundance of natural light, giving the new rooms and suites a bright and airy feel that ultimately creates a light and welcoming environment.
The areas boast ample space and a variety of earthy and soothing colour palettes, which draw inspiration from the surrounding cityscape, evident in the decorative bespoke maps that are suspended throughout.
Neutral tones and cleverly-crafted light installations provide the entrance lobby and hall with a sophisticated appeal, resembling an archetypal arcade. Showcasing simple paneling, elegant edges and steady trimmings, these rooms are quintessential gateways to the luxurious offerings synonymous with St. James’ Court.
The renovation will also see the opening of new spa facilities in August 2018, where hotel guests will be offered pampering experiences in tranquil and luxurious treatment rooms.
