British craftsmanship, refined luxury and an Art Deco spirit collide at this prestigious five-star hotel in the heart of London. Occupying a prime Mayfair position, the West End, designer-lined Bond Street and Buckingham Palace are all just a short meander away. The Athenaeum itself exudes contemporary charm. Spacious rooms and suites cater to all of life’s luxuries, with views over verdant Green Park or character-filled Mayfair. Residences – the hotel’s luxurious serviced apartments – are found inside the adjoining Victorian red-brick buildings. These polished spaces offer a private entrance, separate bedroom and living areas, 24-hour in-room dining, plus full access to the hotel’s facilities. Dining comes courtesy of the hotel’s restaurant, 116 at The Athenaeum, with menus championing the very best British produce. The royally-inspired afternoon tea has become something of a London tradition, served with artisan tea, picture-perfect pastries and an array of sweet and savoury treats. Across the lobby, The Bar at The Athenaeum is a tranquil hideaway, promising cocktails created by an award-winning barman and more than 100 rare and intriguing whiskies. Sumptuous seating areas offer an insider’s look at The Athenaeum’s Living Wall – a vertical garden that covers an entire exterior wall of the hotel, from ground level right through to the top floor. Elsewhere in the hotel, the high-spec gym is accessible 24/7, while the spa has an inviting hot tub and an enticing menu of REN treatments. Guests at The Athenaeum can also gain exclusive access to The View when booking direct – an enviable London spot from which to enjoy a complimentary drink and nibbles in the evening.

We booked a joint 60th Birthday celebration knowing the Hotels excellent reputation and we were delighted with the experience. The Team were really engaging, helpful and showed a genuine interest in us making the weekend very special abs ur was great to see hospitality at its very best Kim discreetly sang Happy Birthday and we were fortunate to be upgraded. The location for our plans was perfect and I would highly recommend for your visit to London. Final thought and to sum it up, when a member of the team who you haven’t previously seen says “ I hope you have a lovely birthday today” you cannot help but smile Great stay and thank you Ps, the Shower was great

We have stayed for ten wonderful nights. Excellent hotel happy, relaxed, and comfortable. The staff was warm, friendly, and helpful. The four rooms were spotlessly clean. the location is so central for all attractions. It was simply home away from home.

The hotel was recommended by a friend and did not disappoint. The team was gracious. The requests were always met with pleasure. The room was quite clean. The key thing that just tickled us was the little measures taken that made us feel like the hotel was our second home. We were greeted in our room with our daughter's favorite snacks. A kite, a little stuffy (which we adopted) and a few games were also there. But there is just something special when walking back in off the street and the doorman greets you by name with a "Welcome home". That warmth is genuine. We will return.
