Studio 1508 completes £100m revamp of Jumeirah The Carlton Tower

by Megan Whitby | 03 Jun 2021

The Jumeirah Group has reopened the 186-room The Carlton Tower hotel, in the heart of London’s Knightsbridge following an 18-month closure for refurbishment.

The 17-story building has been redesigned, with an extensive makeover costing £100m (€116.3m, US$141.1m).

The five-star Carlton Tower originally opened in 1961 as London’s first tower hotel and was celebrated for being the tallest in the city at that time.

Originally designed by Henry End – who was also responsible for the interiors of the Plaza Hotel in New York – the hotel refit was overseen by interior and architecture design studio 1508 London.

The practice has drawn on the hotel’s heritage and location to create a "modern classic with a timeless, refined interior and sense of grandeur".

A new restaurant, lobby bar and lounge, ballroom and meeting rooms have also been added.

The Carlton Tower has also reopened its 15,000sq ft, members-only Peak Fitness Club & Spa which is spread across three floors, complete with a five-treatment room Talise Spa.

The Peak offers studio classes, and a gym featuring Technogym and Theragun equipment on the ninth floor, with panoramic views across the capital.

Completing the offering is a naturally lit swimming pool, with views through a double-height glass ceiling and lined with poolside cabanas.
