Royal Lancaster London hotel is all heart with Valentine’s Day light show

The Royal Lancaster London becomes the ultimate Valentine’s Day hotel this weekend, as the iconic hotel lights up with a giant love heart. 

The stunt runs from today till February 15, and while we can’t actually treat ourselves to a celebratory city break there right now, we certainly appreciate the sentiment. 

Located on Lancaster Gate, the luxury hotel completed an £85 million renovation of all its public spaces and bedrooms in 2018, and offers 411 guest rooms spread across 18 floors. 

The hotel’s frontage was remodelled with an 8-metre high glazed façade that showcases the double-height reception space.  Dominating the lobby is a staircase made from white Carrara marble.

During the Sixties, the Royal Lancaster London served as a location for The Italian Job and famously hosted the after-party for The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine movie premiere, which saw the Fab Four attend a ‘Yellow Submarine’ nightclub.

When we’re all allowed to stay again, expect first class facilities, including the Hyde Lobby Bar and award-winning  Nipa Thai restaurant, famed service and some of the best views across Hyde Park and Central London.
