The Chesterfield Mayfair is a lovely hotel in the heart of Mayfair, on a quiet street but close to upscale shopping and art galleries. The hotel is well managed, and all of the staff I encountered were friendly and helpful. The overall atmosphere is traditional, but not at all snobby. The lobby and common areas are nicely decorated and comfortable.
The room sizes vary, but are often small. The junior suite I was allocated was about the size one would expect for a standard room, but with two small bathrooms (one with shower only, one with tub only), and two closets. The room was decorated so as to make the best use of the limited space, such as by mounting the flat-screened TV on the wall. The king size bed was actually two twin beds pushed together (an odd arrangement that I have seen at a number of first class British hotels). Seating, desk space and storage space were adequate, and the lighting was fine. The decor was traditional and soothing. The curtains effectively kept out the light. Housekeeping was impeccable. Bottled water was provided free of charge, as were coffee-making facilities. Room service was prompt and the food was excellent.
Overall, I had an enjoyable stay at this charming hotel.More
