The Athenaeum Hotel hosted travel agents at a recent cocktail reception at Spago in Beverly Hills, Calif., celebrating the property’s $16 million renovation. General manager of the hotel in the Mayfair area of London, Jonathan Critchard, and the hotel’s executive manager, Lorraine Engledow, gave a presentation that featured images of the newly renovated property.

The recent changes at the hotel include a revamp of its 111 guestrooms and 12 suites, and the exterior now features a dramatic “living wall” that resembles a vertical garden and is destined to become a London landmark.
