Edwardian Hotels London has launched a brand-new menu selection for its meetings and events as part of a significant investment across the business’s wider delegate offerings.
Offered across 10 Radisson Blu Edwardian properties in London, the thoughtfully developed collection of menus means delegates may now choose from a different selection every day of the week. The restaurant-quality dishes are all beautifully presented and complement one another.
“As we continue to invest heavily into our MICE (meeting, incentive, conference, and exhibition) food and beverage offering and strive to provide exceptional experiences to our guests and delegates, we have worked with all aspects of our business to develop a collection of menus designed to ensure that guests receive the quality they have grown to expect from our restaurants, including our Kitchen brands, while maintaining a distinct sense of corporate identity,” says Amir Jati, service excellence director at Edwardian Hotels London. “We’ve also partnered with a selection of leading brands to give our offering something extra, such as Joe & Seph’s Gourmet Popcorn and Häagen-Dazs ice cream.”
Each daily “Experience” menu starts with an “Arrival Experience,” which offers a range of fresh juice, yogurts, pastries, and tea and coffee that varies from day to day. This is followed by the “Mid-Morning Experience,” at which delegates choose from a selection of energy-boosting snacks and smoothies. The “Afternoon Experience” includes sweet and savory offerings.
For lunch, guests enjoy a choice of four nourishing salads, a Spanish or Italian antipasti selection, four main courses — including fish, meat, and vegetarian options — and two desserts. In addition, Edwardian Hotels London has developed an expansive range of sandwich options, with a different selection available each day, as well as supplementary breakfast and refreshment menus.
The new menus are part of a wider, continued commitment from the business in all aspects of its conference and events experience. In collaboration with key stakeholders and investors, Edwardian Hotels London has transformed the connectivity of each property, offering complimentary, furiously fast Wi-Fi on unlimited devices, allowing guests and delegates to enjoy seamless download speeds of up to 150 Mbps.
In addition, following its success with overnight guests, the reach of the artificial intelligence chatbot EDWARD has been expanded to support its meeting and event attendees.
“Meetings and events play a significant part in our business, and as such, we are constantly looking to ensure that we remain ahead of the curve,” says Hasnain Alloo, commercial director of Edwardian Hotels London. “London remains a leading global hub for the sector, and we are committed to evolving our offering to meet and surpass the high expectations of our guests and delegates.
“The new menus are one aspect of a host of improvements to our MICE offering. We have invested in our properties, reimagining the layouts of our communal spaces to afford a greater sense of productivity and to facilitate flexible working.”
As part of that portfolio-wide effort to evolve and improve the available spaces, Edwardian Hotels London has undertaken a series of refurbishments over the past year. These changes focused on encouraging “connected communities” with open spaces for businesses to meet before or after meetings and events. The lobbies of the Radisson Blu Edwardian, Mercer Street and Radisson Blu Edwardian, Hampshire have been redesigned to create light-filled lounge areas for business travelers to meet, work, and relax.
This year, Edwardian Hotels London also unveiled the Penthouse Suite at the Radisson Blu Edwardian, Hampshire hotel, offering a luxurious meeting space with unparalleled views of the London skyline as a backdrop.
