ONE OF LONDON'S landmark hotels - the Royal Horseguards - is currently undergoing a £16 million makeover.
Guoman Hotels is upgrading the property, built in the style of a French chateau on the Thames Embankment, to luxury status.
All 280 rooms will feature the latest technology, including built-in iPod docking stations, mood lighting, a surround-sound system and free wifi access, as well as plasma TVs in the bathroom. The bedroom balconies are also being opened up to overlook the river.
Other features of the renovation include a Guoman Club lounge and a new conservatory restaurant, which is planned for the terrace to offer a private area for guests to dine and enjoy the views.
Completion is scheduled early this year.
