What We Love
- At the northern end of upscale Mayfair, you're within credit card swiping distance of Selfridges and all the shops along Oxford Street and Marylebone High Street
- The unfussy international menu in the popular Colony Grill Room restaurant, from the team behind London hotspots, the Wolseley and the Delaunay
- A suite created by artist Anthony Gormley looks like a massive robot perched on the building
What To Know
- Guestrooms are done up in a masculine, Art Deco style
- Meals are on the pricey side, especially the breakfast
- This northern end of Mayfair isn’t quite as posh and polished as the streets south of Grosvenor Square
- Free WiFi
- Parking On Site
From the restaurateurs behind London hotspots like the Ivy and the Wolseley, the Beaumont is a stylish newcomer on a quiet Mayfair square. Although mostly a new structure, the hotel’s facade dates to 1927 and inspires the pre-war elegance of the Art Deco interiors. Think vintage black-and-white photography, gleaming marble, rosewood and shagreen accents, and pale silks throughout. All 73 rooms, studios and suites are enormous by city standards, with private entrance halls, floor-to-ceiling windows, Nespresso machines and complimentary WiFi, plus mosaic-and-marble bathrooms stocked with D R Harris amenities. For a once-in-a-lifetime splurge, book a night in Anthony Gormley’s Room, a dark, oak-clad one-bedroom suite with a pure white marble bathroom housed inside a robot-like sculpture. On the dining front, clubby Colony Grill dishes up American grill favorites and kitschy classics like grilled cheese, duck a la orange and meatloaf in a glamorous dining room decked out with leather booths and banquettes, and sporting murals by artist John Mattos. Next door, the American Bar does classic cocktails (shaken or stirred only) and has a robust list of bourbons and American whiskies.
In the Area
You’re a short walk from some of London’s best shopping, including the iconic Selfridges, one of London’s longest-standing department stores, and Daunt Books, an immaculately preserved Edwardian travel bookstore. Head to La Fromagerie and choose from the hundreds of wines and cheeses for a picnic in nearby Regents Park. You can rent boats and pedalos to take out on the mirrorlike lake. Save some time to explore the Wallace Collection, a mansion on Manchester Square that houses the private art collection of 19th-century nobleman Sir Richard Wallace.
How to Get There
Everybody at the hotel was so lovely, attentive and gracious! My room was the perfect size and full of yummy freebies and great products. We enjoyed the complimentary BMW rides. I can't wait for my next visit!
I had the pleasure of staying at the Beaumont for 4 nights on business. The property itself is beautiful, done in Art Deco themes. The rooms are well-appointed with incredibly comfortable beds. The bathroom was the standout for me, the heated floors were a nice treat! I probably stay in 100 hotels every year and I would say this is probably the cleanest hotel room I have had. The service was really terrific as well, everyone continually offering to help with things both big and small. The location is great as well, as it it walking distance to a lot of things, yet tucked away in a non-busy street. Next time I am in London, I will definitely be back!
I stayed at the Beaumont for 2 nights and the experience was exceptional. The service was just fantastic. The staff was attentive, friendly and very helpful. The room was very comfortable, with great amenities. The location was very convenient. I really enjoyed the foods and service at the restaurant, both for breakfast and lunch, during my stay. It was, overall, an outstanding experience!
This hotel is pretty amazing in every way. The service is outstanding, the small touches and amenities are on-point. They seem to fix so many of the things typical hotels get wrong.
- Inclusive minibar is a really nice feature.
- Food is pretty good. Albeit the in-room dining menu is somewhat limited. However, the price point, for this calibre hotel is outstanding. They aren't gauging you with food cost, service fees and other non-sense.
- Rooms are warm, comfortable and blend the old/new world quite well. Beds are super comfortable.
The only negative thing I could say is that many of the doors throughout the hotel, both to the rooms themselves and within the suites, have automatic closers on them. While this is fine, they are calibrated in such a way that the doors SLAM shut. Busy mornings at the hotel you'll hear (and feel, as nearly the entire room shakes) when nearby doors close. They really should look into how to better close them softly as it's very jarring and very frequent at busy times. Perhaps it was just my room location, uncaring neighbors or just nearby rooms that had the issue, but even the door connecting the living room in my suite slammed with such force.
My family of three children and spouses and six young grandchildren spent last weekend at The Beaumont in order to attend a family wedding. The hotel was fantastic! The staff were, without exception, outstanding and special thanks must go to Valerie who organised our stay so very well. The hotel is just what one expects a 5+ star hotel to be - the bedrooms and bathrooms are spotlessly clean and spacious with supremely comfortable beds, nothing is too much trouble, you are known by name, the children are looked after incredibly well, the food is first class. I could go on but you probably have the idea.....
I cannot recommend The Beaumont highly enough and take this opportunity of thanking the whole team.
