The Clayton Hotel in Chiswick has re-opened following a multi-million pound makeover.
The 227-room hotel has undergone a £21m extension and refurbishment over the last two years and now has a larger, new-look reception, bar, restaurant and lounge area with warmer colours.
It has resulted in 25 new jobs and general manager Thomas Doyle was joined by his staffing team, senior executives from owner Dalata Hotel Group and Hounslow Mayor Ajmer Grewal at the opening.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony was followed by a celebratory lunch in the glittering Chiswick Ballroom on October 10.
Mr Doyle said: “People no longer spend time in their room, preferring to be in communal spaces, even if they’re on their own.
“We’ve provided a variety of places to sit throughout the ground floor offering different degrees of privacy as well as space to work, relax, eat, hold business meetings or chat with friends – with super-fast broadband throughout.
“We are thrilled with our refurbishment, which takes the hotel into a new era. Our welcoming feel will, we hope, give guests, local residents and businesses in the area plenty of reasons to come and visit us.”
With 104 additional bedrooms, and all existing rooms upgraded, guests can choose from deluxe, executive and family rooms as well as king executive suites.
The hotel's front desk has moved to provide a more welcoming entrance, while there is a gym, 100 parking spaces and bar and restaurant terraces.
The atrium is complete with marble flooring and a huge glass chandelier as well as more extra seating areas separated by open-shelf room dividers and a private library.
The new Grill Restaurant has a team of of 15 led by head chef Gaurav Puri with the likes of steaks, fish and burgers on the menu.
Meanwhile the Globe Bar seats up to 80, with barman Sean Elliot guiding customers to the perfect drink including Chiswick's own Sipsmith gin and locally brewed Fuller's Ales.
And finally, meeting and event spaces for intimate gatherings like wedding parties can accommodate 400 guests.
