The five-star, 306-bedroom Chancery Court hotel in London is to close on Thursday for two-and-a-half months, reopening on 15 October as the Rosewood London.
The closure of the hotel, located on Holborn, between the City of London and Covent Garden, will enable the final stages of an £85m renovation of the 1914, Grade II-listed property to be completed.
In October, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts will take over the management of the hotel, which was operated by Marriott under its Renaissance brand between 2000 and 2011. In the interim, the hotel has been directly managed by its owner, Hong-Kong-based HPI.
New York-based Tony Chi and Associates is overseeing the design of the public and event space of the hotel, which includes a ballroom for 435 guests, while the restaurant is being created by Martin Brudnizk, known for his work on Scott's, 34, Le Caprice and the new restaurant at Lime Wood.
Matthias Roeke, who was appointed general manager of the hotel in 2011, has recently been joined by Bjorn van der Horst, the Swiss-born chef who has been appointed as director of food, beverage and kitchens.
Van de Horst, who previously worked in London at the Gordon Ramsay restaurant La Noisette, the Michelin-starred Greenhouse restaurant and his own business, Eastside Inn, has recently spent two years as the group chef and food and beverage director of Soneva Fushi by Six Senses in the Maldives.
