One of Marriott International's most iconic U.K. properties, the London Marriott Hotel County Hall, has reopened following a multimillion-dollar renovation.

On London's South Bank with views of the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, the Thames and the London Eye, the hotel offers 206 guest rooms that have been redesigned with a blend of modern technology and locally inspired accents. The latter includes orange chairs paying homage to the seating used in the chamber of the former London County Council, and bowler hat prints on curtain fabrics referencing London's business culture.

"Marriott Hotels has consistently pushed the boundaries of innovation in travel to create experiences that inspire and push our guests' creativity. London Marriott County Hall is the perfect combination of historic charm and intuitive design," said Matthew Carroll, vice president of Marriott Hotels.

Along with its revamped guest rooms, including upgraded bathrooms, the hotel features an 82-foot swimming pool -- the largest hotel pool in London -- a fine-dining restaurant, a champagne bar, an executive lounge for business and Marriott Rewards members, and 10 meeting rooms totaling 7,718 square feet of meeting space.

"Our transformation perfectly captures the essence of great British style, whilst also delivering an elevated and modern hotel experience," said Govert Deketh, the property's general manager. "That together with our building's incredible history and our exceptional riverside views now places us as one of the most sought-after properties in London."
