What We Love

Art Deco standout in posh Mayfair, with a sceney restaurant, a glamorous spa, and an artist-designed suite
The Beaumont is a stylish addition to 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 Magritte 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
- The Superior Studio was on the lowest floor (1st Floor) and far away from the elevator (the last room on a secluded corner near the stairs)
- The Bathroom didn’t have any doors and you had to close the sliding doors (2 Sides) of the walk-in closet which unfortunately didn’t even shut fully and there was a gap without even any locks on these sliding doors!!
The Beaumont management excelled and showed why they are one of the best managed hotels in London. The management team took my negative concerns regarding the above and did their best not to let me stay unhappy or even leave without solving this matter in a very positive and professional way.
They moved me to a higher floor and even upgraded me with a higher category Suite which even had a better view and wanted to insure that I feel comfortable and satisfied in my stay and they wouldn’t accept me staying unhappy or leaving unsatisfied.

The quiet, understated perfection of The Beaumont makes other London luxury hotels seem almost preposterous.
Exquisite pared back interiors, delicious unfussy menus and the sweetest, warmest staff made for a gloriously comfortable and unstuffy trip. The Colony Grill was superb on Saturday night; buzzy, elegant and full of smiling faces. Bliss.
We loved the Beaumont--wonderful personalized service and a very nice room. Our room had a HUGE bathroom with radiant floor heat and a great shower. Our booking package included a free breakfast and after a couple of days, the wait staff was even more amenable to 'personalizing' our meals every morning. Slept like a log on the wonderful bed after walking all over London. You're a block away from Selfridge's and close to 2 tube stops. Definitely recommend and would love to return.
