Having enjoyed a stay at the May Fair previously on business, it seemed an ideal place to take my girlfriends for a relaxing girly weekend to celebrate a Birthday and just relax. My friends were first timers at the hotel and so didn't know what to expect, but I knew they wouldn't be disappointed and I was right! The reservation...

To be honest, we spent very little time in the hotel. The city is far too accessible from this location to waste non-sleeping time indoors. We stayed in standard rooms, which were very nice. The hotel staff was overextended with VIP issues and we had a very long wait for the child's bed we had requested, but all interactions were...

We asked for the child's suite because we wanted space. Walked into room and thought we were back in USA with all the space we had! Two queen size beds with loads of space to put your baggage. Beautiful bathroom with great amenities and tea kettle in the room! Room service is excellent and quick and food is very good....

The May Fair was our first stop after arriving in London at 7am from Heathrow. The doormen took care of our luggage and we were checked in quickly with advice on how to spend a few hours before we could get in our room (we did a bus tour just around the corner). London is so big that transportation can...

This hotel is in a great location. Very close to a tube station and close enough to walk to some of the big sites. Including Big Ben and the London eye. The staff were fantastic and very friendly. It was the first hotel I stayed at in London and I would definitely go back.

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.
