PRINCE’S RE­NAIS­SANCE: Duke of York opens re­vamped ho­tel

Harefield Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

PRINCE An­drew, the Duke of York un­veiled a plaque at a Heathrow ho­tel last week which has un­der­gone a £20mil­lion re­vamp.

Prince An­drew was wel­comed to the Re­nais­sance Lon­don Heathrow Ho­tel on Thurs­day by Surinder Arora, chief ex­ec­u­tive of the Arora Group, who started his ca­reer as a waiter at the ho­tel in the 1970s.

He said: “I was hon­oured to be joined by The Duke of York, our team, part­ners and our spe­cial guests to mark the of­fi­cial re-launch of this im­pres­sive ho­tel af­ter such an ex­ten­sive trans­for­ma­tion.

“The ho­tel and I have a unique re­la­tion­ship from my time as a waiter in the bar, so to be stand­ing here cut­ting the rib­bon more than 40 years later, re­mem­ber­ing those days fondly, is very spe­cial.”

The ho­tel in Bath Road has had 61 new rooms added and now boasts 710 bed­rooms and suites.

All ar­eas have re­ceived

a makeover from its con­fer­ence and events spa­ces, to in­tro­duc­ing a new restau­rant – Mar­ket Gar­den – as well up­grad­ing the bar and lounge ar­eas.

Re­nais­sance gen­eral man­ager, Stephen Clay­ton, said: “I am proud to lead a team fully com­mit­ted to de­liv­er­ing a first class ho­tel ex­pe­ri­ence that un­equiv­o­cally re­flects the ex­ten­sive in­vest­ment in the prop­erty.”

The ho­tel is lo­cated close to Heathrow Air­port’s cen­tral ter­mi­nals 1, 2 and 3.
