Royal Lancaster (and Nipa Thai)

This 60ies landmark has now largely finished a massive refurbishment, and the effect is impressive. It`s been a case of sealing off a few floors at a time and taking things back to the original shell, before fitting out with a very sympathetic 60ies inspired homage. The look achieved is...
