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

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.
