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

- 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

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
This place was in such a great location. The hotel was impeccable, the staff fabulous and the place was located very close to the underground. Easy to get around London but the location was in a great neighborhood and was quite for sleeping.
The food was the best we ate in London. Leni & her staff were just so professional and accommodating. We had breakfast, lunch & dinner at the Colony restaurant, I'd highly recommend it for any of those times. Sleeping room was comfortable and relaxing. I would recommend this place to any London visitor. Great walking location too. Loved the products they use in the bathrooms. The concierge staff was most helpful. Good recommendations
A hidden treasury in Mayfair!!! The Beaumont hotel. The ambiance, decoration, light, smell, music, mood, food and the employees are very special. Everything in this hotel excellent, with details that make the difference. If you want a special experience in London, stay there.
My husband and I spent five days in this amazing hotel and can’t say enough wonderful things about it. The property itself is just perfect. Beds are dreamily comfortable, the artwork throughout the hotel is fascinating and is in keeping with the 1920 - 1930’s theme of the hotel. A Block and a half from Selfridges, the hotel is very well located. But what really makes this hotel is the service. The staff goes above and beyond to answer requests, anticipate the slightest desire of guests and then to fulfill them quickly and cheerfully. We have never experienced such flawless service in any hotel anywhere. The staff is like a family, genuinely warm and caring. I’m so grateful that I was able to stay in this wonderful hotel.
I used to live in Mayfair some years ago but I didn’t have the opportunity to visit the American Bar inside the Beaumont. Until today.
It’s an awesome bar for multiple reasons:
1) the cocktail menu contains a wide range of alternatives. I also had some oysters, they were giant!
2) the bar has a relaxed atmosphere and you, as a client, don’t feel under observation all time (as it often happens);
3) I had the pleasure to be served by David (Martini) and Simon, the waiters of the American bar. They have such a positive energy! They were very professional, smiley, ironic and witty: they showed their own personality, such a rarity because in general waiters don’t talk to clients and are very cold, like pieces of wood.
It’s also thanks to Simon and David that I’ll be back soon.
Unfortunately I don’t know the name of the bartender but I can assure you that also the cocktail was extremely good and the concierge was brilliant and polite as well.
In conclusion: amazing. Better than the Ritz and the Savoy.
We stayed at the Beaumont for 4 nights. The room is beautiful with the perfect blend of modern and grand old fashioned style. The attention to detail is fantastic. The even fold and put rivol s arou d your phone charger cords and fold your glasses cleaning cloths when cleaning the room!! All in room snacks and non alcoholic drinks in the bar fridge and free and generously restocked daily.
The best part is the service. Non of the usual hyper professional cold and impersonal service you normally get at 5 star hotels. Every single of the staff from the Doorman to Concierges to Reception are exceptionally warn and friendly and go out of their way to make you feel at home and welcome throughout your whole stay. In fact the General Manager of the hotel offered me a bottle of water when I returned from a run around Hyde Park which is round the corner!! Oxford st is only 50 metres away.
I highly recommend this hotel to all travellers whether they be for pleasure or business.
