Five-star luxury property Royal Lancaster confirmed as the first hotel in London to receive the Global Secure Accreditation.

Royal Lancaster London is a 5* luxury hotel overlooking Hyde Park in a highly sought-after area in central London, surrounded by high grade residential, commercial and diplomatic properties. The hotel has recently undergone a four-year, £85 million refurbishment. The hotel is well known for their corporate events and functions and business travel makes up a large proportion of the hotel business. They have a strong international appeal with a large proportion of guests from Japan, America and the Middle East, including dignitaries, royals and heads of state.

With high value guests and regular visits from personal protection officers, the Royal Lancaster London saw the GSA standard as an opportunity for vital feedback on the security measures at the hotel, following the refurbishment. The formal accreditation was an excellent way of showcasing the hotel’s diligent approach to security for their high value guests and key corporate events for multi-nationals. In addition, the membership support services offered by GSA post accreditation have proven invaluable.
