YTL Hotels Announce The Academy Refurbishment

Situated in the heart of Bloomsbury in London’s West End, The Academy comprises a collection of five Georgian townhouses combined into one hotel. Housing 50 guest rooms across its five townhouses, it is currently undergoing a multi-million-pound interior refurbishment by YTL Hotels, which will be completed in April 2018. 
New York-based designer Alexandra Champalimaud is overseeing the refit, blending contemporary and vintage with a nod to the Bloomsbury Set, an influential group of writers, intellectuals and artists including Virginia Woolf, John Maynard Keynes and E.M. Forster who lived and worked in Bloomsbury in the early 20th Century. 
A redesign of public spaces will see The Alchemy Bar re-housed on the ground floor, leading through to a beautiful garden. The lower ground floor will house The Refectory, an intimate breakfast room and function space.
