The primary ground floor function room, the Nine Kings Suite, is directly accessible from the marble lined lobby as well as via its private roadside entrance. This colossal event space can accommodate up to 1500 standing and 1050 for a dinner and dance, making it one of the largest and most versatile suites in London. The Nine Kings Suite also has the benefit of natural daylight through its floor to ceiling length windows and after its complete refurbishment in 2015, the hotel introduced dazzling retractable chandeliers and ceiling cameras for the head chef to monitor the table service. The Nine Kings Suite particularly lends itself to Mandap ceremonies and large cultural weddings that require a huge dance floor and hospitality operation.
On the lower ground floor, The Westbourne Suite has a similar capacity of up to 900 for dinner guests and 1500 for a standing reception. Its multi zoned Bose audio system creates an instant atmosphere and the effective colour changing ceiling lights replicate the night sky. With just a spark of imagination, the room can be transformed into an unforgettable wedding setting. The Westbourne Suite also can be separated into different zones with its three partition walls.

Alternatively, smaller weddings of up to 150 standing and 90 seated are suited to the Beech Room. This bright and neutral space is equipped with all of the essentials to conduct a sophisticated event with direct views over Hyde Park.
My parents had their wedding reception at the Royal Lancaster Hotel 40 years ago yesterday. I emailed the hotel to arrange a photo in a high suite and a meal and they went above and beyond our expectations. Guest service staff member Irene was so professional and welcoming that it really made my parents day. We ate at the Island Grill and was waited on by Vladimir who was really attentive and a great server. Food was great and very reasonably priced considering you are in London.
The hotel has a stunning retro feel and we had a lovely day celebrating my parents Ruby wedding anniversary. Thank you again.
We got married at the hotel 6 months ago which was magical in itself. This weekend, we chose to stay in the hotel to celebrate a friends wedding in London. We booked a standard room for 2 nights but upon checking in, Irene the reception assistant manager remembered us and upgraded us complimentary which made our stay not only one of significant memory but also a joy. We were personally escorted to our room and given help with our baggage. Our room overlooked Hyde Park. nothing was too much trouble in the hotel - all staff that we came across.
What a fantastic weekend - thank you Royal Lancaster for not only being a hotel close to our heart as the place we got married in but also thank you for keep being so great at what you do. We will likely return for our first Anniversary in November!
We had an absolutely fantastic time at the Royal Lancaster. We were given outstanding attention and service, nothing was too much trouble. Even the chef Harlem came out to see us and ask if everything was satisfactory. The food was outstanding and we had a fabulous time. Would definitely recommend.
