The Luxury May Fair Hotel, London

The fashionable May Fair Hotel has been a by-word for elegance and style since the twenties.  A favourite haunt of fashionistas, models and the jet set. 

The May Fair first opened by King George V in 1927 and once owned by the filmmaking Danziger Brothers, is the official hotel for London Fashion Week (LFW) and the BFI London Film Festival. The five star luxury hotel has been recog­nised for having “The Best Hotel Bar in London” by The Evening Standard.

Situated in the heart of the Mayfair village, a recent £75m transformation has created a hotel that shimmers with style and bustles with energy.

The 406-room, luxury London hotel has hosted countless celebrities, heads of state, world leaders and cultural icons throughout its storied history. The hotel features 12 signature suites; a private VIP entrance; extraordinary banquet facilities, including the largest private theatre in London and the largest Baccarat chandelier in Europe; the world-class May Fair Spa; rooftop penthouse with 360˚ views of London; and a superlative staff attuned to the needs of the most discerning guest.

All-time favourites seem to be the Azure Suite, complete with a secret second entrance and private lift, the Schiaparelli, arguably one of the most breathtaking rooms in London, and the Penthouse, which comes equipped with its own bar and a roof terrace large enough to hold 70 people absorbing the stunning views over London.

Most of all though, the hotel offers a discretion of service that pre-empts requests, considers every eventuality and serves without distraction – a true five-star service for one of Europe’s finest properties.

As the official LFW hotel the May Fair’s partnerships are a testament to the hotel’s style, glamour and service, and to what it has become since its 2006 revival; a young, fashionable and connected central London hotel.
