Collectiva rebrands Royal Lancaster Hotel

Collectiva has created a new identity for the Royal Lancaster Hotel in central London, now branded as Lancaster London.

The consultancy has worked with the hotel for around five years on projects, according to creative director Francesco Nerici.

Nerici says, ‘The Royal Lancaster Hotel brand had accumulated too many layers over the years. The current logo uses six words: Royal, Lancaster, Hotel, London, Hyde and Park.’

He adds, ‘We renamed it Lancaster London, emphasising the location and dropping all the redundant elements.’

The new name and identity are set to launch on a website for the hotel, which goes live on 9 September.

    Collectiva did not name the Royal Lancaster’s restaurants. Nipa is named after its sister restaurant in the Landmark Bangkok, and the name Island came out of the launch project undertaken by Wordsearch.

    As a former member of the hotel’s sales and marketing team, this renaming exercise makes absolutely no sense to me. It merely erodes all the brand building activities that have taken place over many years to establish the hotel with corporate clients, conference agents, group travel organisers, destination management companies etc.
