The hotel and restaurant, Parker’s Tavern, on Parker’s Piece are opening after an £80million facelift.
The University Arms and chef Tristan Welch’s Parker’s Tavern are set to open in June.
It has undergone an £80million transformation to reintroduce the building’s classical architecture, replacing blocks built in the 60s and 70s.
It will cost upwards of £205 per night to stay in one of the Regent Street hotel’s 192 rooms and suites.
The restaurant will have a seperate entrance from the street, and a wine bar will also be open to the public.
A spokesperson said the hotel is a unique collaboration between architect John Simpson and interior designer Martin Brudnizki.
“Simpson is the nation’s foremost classical architect and has worked on extensive projects in Cambridge, including at Peterhouse and Gonville and Caius Colleges.
“As well as his acclaimed work on both Buckingham and Kensington Palaces, he has worked most recently on Eton College, the Royal College of Music and the University of Notre Dame.
“He has overseen the hotel redevelopment, including the replacement of the building’s 1960s and ‘70s extensions with an attractive, classically designed front that is in-keeping with Cambridge’s better-known architectural heritage.
“The interiors are by Martin Brudnizki, one of Europe’s foremost leading interior architects whose past projects include Miami Soho Beach House, Scott’s, The Ivy and most recently the acclaimed Beekman in New York.
“University Arms is the first complete hotel project in the UK that will showcase Martin Brudnizki interiors from top to bottom.”
