The breakfast in the hotel was a marvelous variety- awesome eggs, mushrooms so many fruits to choose from and custom made eggs are in the buffet too- eggs benedict and the like. Was fortunate enough to have met the Downton Abbey cast and heard from the doorman Tom hiddleston and Benedict cumberbatch hang out at the hotel bar. Cons Being... More

This is a good choice hotel if you are attending an even at the Grovsnor as it is a 5 min (£6) taxi ride away. This hotel is also well located and a stones throw away from Green Park tube. Room was large, modern and clean. I had a first floor room which did have a little road noise but... More

This hotel is in the heart of Mayfair within easy walking distance of many great spots. Excellent service, great breakfast. Clean and fresh. Very modern. Hip bar and very interesting cigar bar upstairs. Full fitness center.

Had a truly lovely stay here last friday night, the staff are very attentive. We ate in the Mayfair Kitchen and we had the Surf & turf to share, it was amazing! And drank in the bar after, great atmosphere in both!

Checked in early as usual and had a lovely quiet room (which I need as come straight from working all night) and the most comfortable beds in London. Cleaned to highest standard too. Bathrooms have excellent... More

The room was very nice, larger than I expected with a sizable lavatory. Room Service was available at midnight which was great.The staff were all very polite and very helpful. Having a cigar lounge was a big bonus!

Myself and two of my girlfriends decided to go to London on a girl's trip, we chose the May Fair because it was in close proximity to everything. We weren't expecting the 5 star service we received, the hotel was clean and luxurious and the staff went above and beyond to make their guests feel at ease. (Especially Joe!) The... More

Staying in Mayfair

Neighborhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
