The Cumberland Hotel is a contemporary hotel with 1,000 guest rooms, including the Jimmi Hendrix Suite, five kitchens, a private dining facility and an executive lounge. Situated at the heart of London’s Oxford Street, above Marble Arch Tube Station, the hotel could not be in a busier location.
The guest accommodation is arranged over eight floors with a further four basement levels of office accommodation and plant rooms. P&R Morson’s remit was to remodel the existing hotel space to create additional retail units for the landlord while delivering additional back of house space for the hotel in a scheme that also involves the installation of a new goods lift and several new staircases.
All works had to be completed while the hotel remained operational and the P&R Morson team worked closely with the hotel’s management and estates team to programme the works around any business critical requirements and ensure the smooth running of the establishment throughout the scheme.
