The Biltmore Mayfair
The perfect urban retreat
If you are searching for somewhere to stay in the heart of the city, then look no further.

Close by, you’ll be spoilt for choice with dining, shopping and sightseeing options and half of the joy will be returning to your home from home – perhaps for a spot of local cuisine at Cafe Biltmore, courtesy of award winning chef, Jason Atherton or a wind-down cocktail in the Pine Bar. The rooms are opulent, the service superlative and you’ll have such a fabulous time – you’ll leave The Biltmore planning your return.

The Beaumont Hotel
Art Deco glamour
Inspired by the Art Deco hotels of the 1920’s, this very special listed building is the perfect space for an unforgettable staycation. The Beaumont is a luxury five star hotel in a quiet garden square, close enough to the must-see boutiques, galleries, museums and neighbourhoods (Marylebone, St James’s and the West End) close by. If you’re looking for some conversation currency, check out ROOM – where the bedroom of this unique suite, is a giant semi-abstract sculpture by artist Anthony Gormley OBE. This cave-like space encourages guests to enter a different stage of consciousness to experience a meditative pause – the perfect opportunity to withdraw from the hustle and bustle of life outside. The hotel has just 50 rooms and 10 suites and with all the public areas full of original art and antiques, the glamorous Colony Room restaurant, the chic American Bar and an elegant gym and spa – a stay at The Beaumont will leave you refreshed and relaxed.

Stepping into The Connaught feels a little like entering another world. Set apart from the bustle of London, yet immersed in its unique personality, it is a haven of discovery which has been dedicated to fine art and the finer things in life. Right in the heart of Mayfair, the hotel is loved for its winning combination of elegance and second to none service. With private butlers, Michelin starred dining, gorgeous bars and attention to detail in absolutely everything, what more could you possibly wish for? As you take the historic staircase (rumour has it that designer, Ralph Lauren was so enamoured he had a replica of it installed in his flagship store on Madison Avenue) let the magic take hold.
