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

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
Such a special treat! One night spent here made many memories. A very comfortable suite. So near Oxford Street but incredibly quiet and peaceful. Highly professional yet warm staff. Very thoughtful. Suffering with an annoying cold, a tisane of lemon and ginger was sent up to our room and made such a difference. First class breakfast menu. Absolutely the best hotel I have ever stayed in.
Stumbled on the Beaumont via FHR and it was an exceptional representation of what a five-star hotel should be.
From the moment we arrived everything the staff at the hotel were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are beautiful, extremely clean and spacious for London standards. The bathrooms are beautifully designed and feel like your own personal spa.
The hotel gym is quite small if you are looking for a proper workout does not have the adequate equipment but you are just minutes to Hyde Park which has great running trails.
Being just off Oxford Street in Mayfair the location is very convenient to get around the city but a bit off the main path so makes it much quieter and more enjoyable than some of the other large 5-star hotels.
Would 100% recommend this beautiful hotel for anyone looking for luxury and top-level service in London. Although it is not as well known as some of the large London hotels this is one of the only ones who can properly provide the level of service expected with a five-star hotel.
We had one of the best experiences of any hotel we have stayed at, and we have stayed at many top hotels. The rooms are roomy, spotless and exquisite. Although full, the place was silent. The staff, from the general manager to the doormen couldn't be more professional or helpful. The food and service in the restaurant was excellent. They even had a special menu for the London baseball series.
We came for a special birthday Sunday lunch and weren’t disappointed. It’s one of my wife’s favourite restaurants and she’s not wrong.
Superb service, great food and my children are desperate to return to have even more ice cream, toppings and sources.
Superb setting, relaxed and welcoming environment.
Really enjoyed my first visit
We came here for a private dining event, so I can't actually attest to the rooms etc. That said, the event was excellent; the private dining and events team were extremely accommodating with all of our requests and the event passed without a single hitch. The staff serving were brilliant as well; very friendly and attentive, and the food was good too. The hotel itself is very elegant and stylish; would definitely recommend it as a place to stay for anyone visiting London.
