Following a multi-million pound refurbishment, the Strand Palace Hotel now offers eleven newly designed state-of-the-art rooms that can be used for business meetings, dinners, conferences and exhibitions. The multi-purpose spaces are well-equipped with the latest technology, including touch panel lighting controls, air-conditioning, high speed Wi-Fi and advanced audio-visual equipment. Further specialist equipment can be sourced by the in-house conference and events team.
Nine of the rooms are situated on the lower ground floor, which is accessed through a private entrance at the front of the hotel. This leads to a grand Art Deco staircase which creates an impressive sense of arrival.
In the heart of the meetings area is a spacious foyer which is fully stocked with complimentary refreshments. With its informal atmosphere, it provides a great space for networking and relaxation.
The Exeter Suite is the largest of the spaces and can accommodate a reception of up to 200 guests, 180 theatre style, or a lunch/dinner of 140. The modern neutrally decorated facility also has the flexibility to be split into two fully soundproofed rooms. Opposite are the Essex Suite and the Drake Suite. The Essex Suite can hold up to 70 for a reception, while the Drake Suite can accommodate 50 guests. Both rooms are well-equipped with modern facilities such as telephone points, and three-phase electricity. The Grenville, Nelson and Raleigh suites are located below the hotel’s original marble and glass Art Deco staircase. The three suites can host a reception for up to 60, 20 and 25 respectively or 60, 25 and 40 theatre style. These smaller rooms are suitable for separate meetings, or breakout sessions. Two smaller rooms, the Trafalgar and Somerset suites, can each accommodate 15 guests in theatre style. These rooms are perfect for smaller meetings or conferences and are also equipped with a full range of facilities. The Covent Garden Suite is the most recent addition to the Conference and Events Centre. Located on the ground floor and featuring contemporary decor, the Covent Garden Suite is available for private dining for up to 70 guests and 60 for a meeting. The Westminster Suite, also on the ground floor, is ideal for entertaining corporate clients as it seats up to 50 guests for private dining.
Experienced event planners are available to discuss guests’ specifications and deliver bespoke arrangements. Executive Chef, Krishna Shankar, is also on-hand to prepare a wide range of menus to suit any taste or budget, from a coffee break with snacks, to a five-course banquet. Day delegate rates start from a very reasonable £49 per person (including VAT). Rates include room hire, unlimited refreshments throughout the day, a restaurant buffet lunch, LCD projector, screen and flip chart, conference stationery and water.
