Luxury conference hotel in London by the River
Category: Venues | London Venue |
The design of the Mondrian Hotel is inspired by a transatlantic liner; making full advantage of its river side setting. The shipping link is apparent throughout the hotel. Bedroom balconies protrude over the pathway underneath, taking your focus to the Thames, as if you are on a cruise ship. The interior also has a wide range of nautical artefacts. The most noticeable feature being a gigantic curved copper hull, stretching from the front hotel entrance via reception and on to the riverside public areas.
Meeting Rooms / Event Spaces
Private Screening Room
A small private cinema that seats 56 people is available for private hire on weekdays. The space reinvents itself at weekends into a cinema: the Curzon Mondrian London, which is open to hotel guests and the public.
Art Gallery for exhibitions
The ground floor Lazarides Gallery, it can be hired for press launches, exhibitions and conferences.
Interconnecting conference rooms
Four interconnecting small meeting rooms make up Studios 1-4 that open up to make one large space for up to 275 guests (3,300sq ft). The conference rooms are self-contained with toilets, a cloakroom and up to the minute AV and lighting.
London party venue with a view of the Thames
A great space if you want to host a trendy reception for up to 250 guests, with superb views of the Thames. The Dandelyan has a green marble bar, parquet wood flooring with a projector screen and black out windows if required. There is also a semi private area at the rear for hire.
Roof top bar for exclusive use
The hotel’s rooftop bar and lounge that can be hired occasionally for exclusive use, think “Tatler Party” style.
Private Dining Room at Mondrian London
Off the Sea Containers restaurant complete with gold tables The Private Dining Room is able to seat 20 for private dining. A large S and C adorn the walls in case you forget where you are.
Bedrooms with views of London
When you stay at a luxury conference hotel in London you expect plush decor, but when you look out the window you could be in any city. Not so at the Mondrian. Half of the 359 bedrooms have river views and the best of these have views of St Pauls. Many of the remaining rooms have city views.
You will have guessed by now we are not talking about a traditional luxury London conference hotel, but if you need a contemporary hotel in London for a conference and something memorable, you may have found just the place in Ham Yard.
Lastly one final bit of trivia. When the building was designed in the 1970’s it was intended to be a luxury conference hotel in London. The recession hit and plans were revised to make it office for Sea Containers. Only now has the original plan has come to fruition.
