After a relaxing afternoon spent in the spa having a Moroccan Mud steam, we had a delicious dinner in the hotel's May Fair Kitchen. Service was impeccable and the food was outstanding. All three courses did not disappoint. We topped it off with a night cap at the bar which was buzzing. We stayed the night in a spacious and... More

A great hotel, although the views could be better, the hotel looks better from the outside in than it does from the inside out... The hotels restaurant is fine, with British fare being served like fish and chips, it's a good hotel for crowd watching, spotting the odd celebrity, but the rooms are no better than any other hotel in...

Great upscale hotel in the hear of Mayfair. We had a family room which was larger then the regular hotel room and this helped traveling with the kids. The breakfast is fantastic and good attention to detail. They even found my daughter's teddy bear after one of the maids accidentaly threw him in the laundry with the sheets.

This is about as five star a hotel as you can get. Maybe I was just so pleasantly surprised since we were upgraded from a Radisson Blu Hotel in a different area to this hotel and we were just amazed by how fancy everything was. The room was amazing!

Stopped at Mayfair using our red letter day voucher with included afternoon tea and spa treatment. I was disappointed to find out that the spa was under refurbishment during our stay, so wouldn't really be a serene atmosphere for our relaxing massage.

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.
