The Hotel Russell in London will temporarily close its doors on 15 July 2016 to facilitate a major investment and renovation programme.

Originally opened in 1898 by the Frederick Hotels Company, and designed by Charles Fitzroy Doll, the Hotel Russell is a listed, landmark ‘grande dame’ that occupies the eastern flank of Russell Square in Bloomsbury.

The new-look Russell will combine the rich heritage of the original building with modern touches, vibrant bars and buzzing restaurants. It is scheduled to re-open in 2017.
