Iconic boutique hotel The Stafford in London has announced plans to renovate its Grade-II listed Carriage House and epic Guv’nor’s Suite in a landmark refurbishment project.
The hotel, which consists of a total of 105 bedrooms, including the all-suite Stafford Mews building, the Carriage House, and the main house, has appointed New York-based interior design company Champalimaud Design to oversee the changes at the property’s historic Carriage House Suites, which will aim to be completed in spring 2017.
The design team, led by internationally renowned designer Alexandra Champalimaud, will overhaul each of the 13 bedrooms in the converted former stables, as well as transform the current split-level Guv’Nor’s suite, which will measure 151 sq mtres in total when complete.
The new look will offer a ‘contemporary twist on traditional English furnishings’, bringing an understated opulence to the Carriage House to suit the building’s Grade-II listed status.
In keeping with its equestrian past, the ground ﬂoor rooms and suites will retain their stable doors.
Champalimaud will also be creating a two bedroom, multi-level townhouse suite that is bookable as a one-bedroom junior suite, a two- storey suite (with dining area) or as the full three-level townhouse.
Stuart Procter, general manager of The Stafford London, said: “This is a landmark renovation project for The Stafford and we are excited to be working with Champalimaud, to upgrade the look and feel of our historic carriage house accommodation. The designs that Alexandra and her team have proposed, are a timeless mix of modern British quirkiness and classic English style augmented with a colourful twist, as beﬁts our hotel.”
Originally built as private residences in the 17th century, The Stafford Hotel first opened in 1912. Now the luxury boutique is home to 105 rooms, plus an award-winning restaurant, private dining rooms, the 380-year-old wine cellars, and the American Bar.
