15th December 2022
Location: 44 Grosvenor Square, Mayfair, W1K 2HP
The Biltmore may not have the centuries-old history shared by some Mayfair hotels, but since the 1960s, it has been a true 5-star favourite for many. It offers 250 opulent rooms, 49 curated suites and 8 signature suites where every detail has been carefully thought out.
It sits proudly on Grosvenor Square and is perfectly situated for convenient access to all areas of the capital. World-famous shopping boutiques, restaurants and theatres are just moments away. And if we’re lucky, we might even get to rent a Bentley for the day and tour the capital in style.
Within the hotel, there are various luxury amenities including a brasserie-style restaurant, tea lounge and a cocktail bar.
The Beaumont Hotel
Location: 8 Balderton Street, Brown Hart Gardens, Mayfair, W1K 6TF
This art deco building was designed back in 1926 but never truly fulfilled its potential until more recent times. In 2010, the site underwent a huge reformation bringing the interior in line with its intended style. And now, The Beaumont Hotel shines as one of the best luxury hotels in Mayfair that moves in harmony with its artistic heritage.
Incredible artwork and decorative touches can be found throughout the rooms and suites. And the attention to detail extends to the various iconic public areas where we can relax and unwind. The Colony Grill Room Restaurant, Le Magritte Bar and Gatsby’s Room all offer an amazing selection of food and beverages. And there’s also a sheltered terrace with views of Brown Hart Gardens.
Location: The Connaught, Carlos Place, Mayfair, W1K 2AL
The Connaught is a prestigious destination dating back to the 1800s. It is home to an award-winning restaurant and has a first-class reputation among its devoted fans. It has become an institution over the years with many returning visitors who cannot get enough of the amazing surroundings and quite incredible attention to detail.
Fine art hangs on every wall and an effortless elegance fills the air with every step that we take through the Connaught. And our butler will take care of our every need during our stay in traditional fashion.
The rooms and suites have received full refurbs over the years and now offer contemporary luxury that works perfectly with the natural heritage of such a location.
The hotel has welcomed prestigious guests such as Charles de Gaulle, General Eisenhower, The Queen Mother and the now King Charles. Fashion designer Ralph Lauren is famously reported to have fallen in love with the iconic staircase at The Connaught. As a result, commissioned a replica for his Madison Avenue boutique.
Location: Claridge’s, Brook Street, Mayfair, Mayfair W1K 4HR
This famous hotel was originally two smaller, separate hotels. The first was known as Mivart’s Hotel and it opened back in 1812; it was a mere single townhouse. Claridge’s Hotel opened a few years later and stood next door to Mivart’s. The two were in competition for some time. Then, around the 1850s, the owners of Claridge’s bought Mivart’s and joined the two together. The result was the creation of one of the most glorious, luxury hotels in Mayfair.
All of the individually designed rooms and suites offer street or courtyard views and are finished with the highest quality touches that we could imagine. And within the public areas, there are several bars and restaurants to enjoy.
The Painter’s Room is a fantastic cocktail lounge that offers fine vintages that truly capture the spirit of Claridge’s. The Claridge’s Bar is home to a wealth of vintage champagnes and rare spirits served up in exquisite art deco surroundings. The Fumoir is another cocktail bar inspired by the 1930s set in an intimate hideaway.
It is also one of the most popular locations in London for a wonderful afternoon tea. The British staple has become an event in its own right with visitors coming from all over the world to experience it for themselves.
