As before, we have nothing but praise for the Athenaeum from the Jim the doorman and his staff through to the cleaners. Everyone went out of their way to help make this another memorable London trip. And, the breakfasts are superb - even proper honeycomb available!

1 night stay after an overnight flight from New York. Hassle free parking, amazing spa experience, room ready early and great food and drink in the bar. But most importantly the best staff in London!!

My husband and I spent our 10th wedding anniversary there and we've been spoilt to bits! Coming back to our room, from the SPA (small, but excellent treatments and very quite), we found chocolate cake and strawberries. A sweet thought, much appreciated. The staff is competent, professional, friendly and everything you would expect from a high-standard hotel. And I can...

Neighbourhood 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.
