The Carlton's owners have committed to a program of refurbishment, and many of the hotel public areas have been refreshed. Already and for this hotel its first time a gym, event room and library have been created from the existing public areas. And plans are in place to create a coffee lounge, DDA / ramped access to the brasserie and new porticos to the front of the building.
