This five-star Kensington hotel offers no less than 10 well-appointed and flexible spaces suitable for conferences, exhibitions, award ceremonies and weddings. Here’s why you should choose them for your next gig.
The Royal Garden Hotel, located in walking distance from High Street Kensington station provides 450sqm of exclusive private meeting, breakout and networking spaces. But what’s really great is the dedicated events team that looks after you.
The Palace Suites at The Royal Garden Hotel
If you’re thinking of a conference, we would recommend the York Suite and Lancaster Suite on The Mezzanine. They overlook the lobby and have lots of natural lighting in the main rooms, making them inviting and bright. There’s also an exclusive registration base.
The best bit though? It’s located right next to Bertie’s Bar, which can be used as a break-out area to relax, refresh and network. The other breakout spaces are not communal or shared with other companies, meaning you’ll have your own private space. In fact, there is 189sqm of private catering, networking and social space – at no added cost.
Below is a floorplan of the area to get an overview of the space that's at your disposal.
For larger conferences, gala dinners or big product launches we would opt for The Palace Suites. Arranged over a dedicated floor with a private entrance with direct access from Kensington High Street, the spaces offer exclusive use across six meeting rooms. These comprise of a principal event space, four syndicate rooms for break-out seminars and a function space for exhibitions and drinks receptions.
There’s a dedicated on-site AV company working closely with the conference and events team, so the venue can also offer bespoke staging, enhanced branding opportunities and technological solutions. The 394 stylish bedrooms also come in handy for out-of-towners.
The top floor, top-end Min Jiang
For board meetings, head to one of the four Executive Boardrooms, equipped with the latest AV, secure entry and private refreshment stations. Private dining is even an option here, but if it’s private dining you’re after, we would instead go for one of the restaurants.
The top-floor Chinese restaurant, Min Jiang, with its epic views of Hyde Park, would be our best choice. The PDR can host up to 20 people. SquareMeal gave the restaurant a Gold Award as we believe it is one of London’s slickest operators. It’s decked out with mirrored panels, oriental screens and classical pottery, dealing in scrubbed-up but authentic Szechuan and Cantonese cuisine.
The second renowned restaurant is the Park Terrace which is especially admired for its commitment to seasonal, British menu. The private dining room has space for up to 40 people.
