I stayed at the May Fair hotel while on a business trip to London. This is my second trip and I have to say the May Fair room was definitely larger than my last high-priced hotel in London earlier in the year. I stayed on the 7th floor. The bed was very comfortable and there was a large closet that...

The MayFair is a big place that wants to convey high style, so depending on your definition of same, you might be pleased or impressed. Clearly many of the guests are wanting to be. The room I was given (said to be an upgrade - second floor front - serious noise) was indeed plenty large, and the bathroom was quite...

We arrived from beirut around 22:00 & they couldn't find our reservation made & paid on amoma.com 2 months ago. How shocking! After more than one hour of discussion, they send us to another hotel for the night. Our booking in Nobu was cancelled.

Great location definitely be booking again & the breakfast...

We arrived at the hotel at 12:45 checking was a little long winded but the lady at reception was real nice. I did request an early check in. Our room wasn't ready but put it on priority. She gave us some drinks vouches so we waited in the May fair bar. A trendy bar at the front of the hotel,...

Staying in Mayfair

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.
