We stayed in the hotel for four days in April 2015. On the last day of our stay we ordered a glass of Port wine. What was a surprise when the bartender told us that they did not have porto by the glass. We then opted for one of the four bottles of Porto available on the menu. And guess...

Stayed here a while ago but only just getting round to reviewing it. Although, I suspect it doesn't need my endorsement 😉 Simply wonderful stay right from check in to check out! Room was beautiful and quite spacious. Detailing was spot on and service first class.

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.
