This year Royal Lancaster London on the boundary of Hyde Park is celebrating its 50th Anniversary and the unveiling of its £80 million redesign. Having opened as one of the most stylish places to stay in September 1967, the new design exudes mid-century glamour and an understated elegance synonymous with London.
In celebration of its Golden Anniversary, Royal Lancaster London is offering you the chance to win an overnight stay for two people in a Classic guestroom for just £8.50 – the small sum it would have cost for a double room in 1967!
To enter the competition, share your memories of Royal Lancaster London over the past 50 years with old photographs, vintage invitations to events and gala dinners, magazine articles or any memorabilia with the hashtag #RoyalLancasterTurns50 on Twitter or Facebook.
Every week from Friday 19 January 2018, General Manager Sally Beck will be selecting her favourite entry and the winner will receive an overnight stay for two in a Classic Room, including English Breakfast for two guests, at the price of £8.50.
The redesign of the towering 18-storey hotel encompasses the complete refurbishment of all 411 guestrooms and suites. Every guestroom has a far reaching view across London, and the modern design emphasizes these premium vistas.
For those without social media, entries can be sent directly to the hotel via post – so take a photograph of your Royal Lancaster memorabilia and send it to the address below with your name and email address, or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Room categories start with the Classic Double Room at 20 square meters, priced from £219 per night. All of the guest rooms have Handy phones, hidden international plug sockets, bath robes, slippers, The White Company toiletries, waterfall showers and under floor heating in the bathrooms. TVs show over 138 international channels and 33 radio stations are available.
General Manager Sally Beck said: “The hotel has had a rich and celebrated past, having opened as one of the most chic hotels in London in September 1967. 50 years later, Royal Lancaster London is once again one of the most stylish hotels in the capital. We are looking forward to the next 50 years.”
As one of the most iconic hotels in the Capital, Royal Lancaster London has an illustrious history; from Michael Caine being filmed for ‘The Italian Job’, to events attended by Mohammed Ali, Princess Diana and countless other royals. The hotel also famously hosted the after-party for The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine film premiere, which The Beatles’ attended in the Yellow Submarine Nightclub.
