InterContinental London Park Lane has unveiled a newly designed Royal Suite, which pays homage to the hotel’s location on the site of 145 Piccadilly, Queen Elizabeth II?s former childhood residence. Attention is in every detail of the timeless design that encapsulates signature styles from Her Majesty’s early life through to the present. Located on the 8th floor, the glamorous Mayfair position offers panoramic views of the Royal Parks and sits at the heart of a new ?By Appointment? suite collection that creates one of the largest offerings in the capital.
Designed by The Gallery, the specialised studio within HBA’s London team, the contemporary interpretation draws inspiration from Her Majesty?s style and duties to create residential grandeur, perfectly suited to entertaining, meeting or relaxing.
At the heart of the Royal Suite is a stunning living and entertaining area, which celebrates old world glamour and features an opulent hand-blown glass chandelier inspired by Her Majesty?s diamond collection.

Other pieces include framed antique postcards, and contemporary sketches of the Queen?s finely detailed millinery and her beloved corgis.
Throughout the suite pastel palettes are paired with bolder colour accents and luxurious finishes. Distressed smoked oak floors, leather, silk and brass studded wall coverings are enhanced by the millwork finished cabinetry and antique furnishings.
The four interconnecting rooms have been redesigned in a matching style and can be joined to create an incredible 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom space totalling 196.7m?. The hotel?s famous 73m? London Suite, which is a duplex apartment style offering, can also be interconnected to create a stunning 350m? space.
