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 Beaumont is without any doubt the best hotel in London and one of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed in and we only stay in 5 star hotels.
Let’s start with the staff who are usually overlooked in reviews. From the Manager Alessandro who is a terrific professional, to the head waiter Robert, all the Concierges who are totally helpful to our housekeeper Julia who kept us supplied with the necessities and was thoughtful enough to leave extra water, bookmarks and glass cleaners. This is a staff that goes above and beyond to make sure you have a pleasant stay and feel welcome. They appreciate you have selected The Beaumont for your stay.
The rooms are excellent. They are without a doubt the quietest rooms I have ever stayed in anywhere. You hear nothing, no noises from neighbors, no noise in the hall and no street noise. Whoever designed this hotel should be congratulated. You will definitely get a good nights sleep. Speaking of which, the beds are very comfortable. I usually have issues with hotel beds but not this one. I slept better than I sleep at home.
They have a restaurant that is exceptional and is one of the best in London. The menu is extensive. Everything ordered is prepared exactly correct. Service borders on perfect. Portions were large. Prices were reasonable. The wine selection is very good.
I would gladly give The Beaumont 6 stars if it were possible.
I guarantee the next time we plan a trip to London we will stay there.
We have lodged at several of the fine hotels in the Mayfair area over the last 15 years or so and never heard of this until a few weeks ago and I know for a fact I will be back and it will be a permanent address for me. From when we walked through the doors till we departed a couple of days after the service was just perfect. Rooms and all facilities were spot on. Unfortunately we didn't get to sample lunch or dinner because we were always out during those periods. We however look forward to that on our next trip in October. Kudos to the management and staff.
We have previously had the pleasure of staying in some of the most iconic hotels in London during our annual pilgrimages to our favourite city. Last month, for the first time, we stayed for three glorious nights at The Beaumont and experienced Hotel Perfection!! The atmosphere at The Beaumont was by far the most welcoming of any hotel we have previously enjoyed. The staff were so friendly and accommodating, we felt like favoured family members. The comfort, cleanliness and decor of our accommodation and the hotel in general was superb. Merci mille fois, Lionel, Robert, Christophe, Morgan et al! We will meet again!
