One Whitehall Place / The Royal Horseguards


The Golden Globes are given, the BAFTAs have been

and the opportunity for an Oscar is over for another

year. But wait! Don’t roll up the red carpet just yet. It’s

the season when we shine the spotlight on some of the

UK’s leading hotels and venues that create glittering

award ceremonies, lunches and after show parties.

So let’s roll out the red carpet, polish the chandeliers

and take a closer inspection of the rooms and event

spaces that will be dazzling delegates as they take

centre stage in 2020.

One Whitehall Place /

The Royal Horseguards

Westminster, London SW1A 2HD

Our leading London hotel for a company award

ceremony is the magnificent Royal Horseguards Hotel

and its meeting and event spaces at One Whitehall

Place. Your delegates and guests will be swept off their

feet as they make their entrance via a grand marble

staircase. Rooms with high ornate ceilings, tiled pillars

and glittering chandeliers bring more than a touch of

palatial grandeur to event spaces, with the Whitehall

Suite a particular leading light. Located below pavement

level, this room can accommodate 240 delegates for

an award ceremony with a centre aisle. The hotel can

provide staging and on-site technicians so everyone sees

exactly who is under the showbiz spotlight! And with

the Whitehall Reception adjacent to the suite, greeting

guests on arrival or mingling with the winners is just a

few steps away.

If your company’s prize giving takes place during the

summer, consider using the hotel’s terrace too. This

secluded spot is ideal for alfresco cocktails and a BBQ

with the space sectioned off to give a VIP feel for special

guests and award-winning colleagues. There’s also a

charming secret herb garden which brings even more

kudos to events. The hotel has teamed up with Fever

Tree to create a special G&T menu giving guests the

opportunity to add their own botanicals with herbs from

the garden.

Applause & Awards!

Hardwick Hall Hotel

County Durham.

Set in beautiful award-winning countryside, the

4-star hotel boasts impressive spaces that can be

themed and dressed to dramatic effect. The Grand

space is heated, fully floored and carpeted and has

portable staging and a dance floor. A choice of large

the hotel’s Coleman Suite is an ideal solution.
