The Lowdown

Just a hop, skip and a jump from Park Lane, The Chesterfield offers old-world charm and first-class service in one of the capital’s swankiest postcodes. Stroll to Bond Street and Regent Street for some retail therapy, or wander across Green Park to visit your neighbours at Buckingham Palace.
Inside, the hotel is just as opulent as its surroundings. The 107 guest rooms and suites are decked out in heritage-print wallpaper and thick carpets, award-winning afternoon teas are served in the airy, elegant conservatory, and a sommelier is on hand at Butlers Restaurant, home to “the best Dover Sole in London”. The comfy leather Chesterfield sofas, rich claret and emerald and wood-panelling complete the elegant yet cosy member’s club vibe.
The hotel’s understated elegance and serenity have proven a winning formula, winning The Chesterfield a spot in the list of top 25 hotels in the UK, as voted at the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards 2016.

A magnificent flagship for London. Timeless!

I stayed her a decade ago on Buisness due to the location. This was the first time I had returned to this part of London. Well it didn't disappoint. They still have the traditional footman to meet you from your car, its a blast from the passed and put a smile on my face every time. Its situated in a prime part of the city, nothing is more than a short walk away. The rooms are perfectly appointment. I would highly recommend getting a suit. they are enormous, and exquisitely appointed. I don't think there is a London hotel to rival the luxury or service. The food is also superb. I will make sure I don't leave it so long next time.

Pretty Good Experience

We had a 3 night stay in the extremely pleasant Phillipe Suite.
Housekeeping staff were excellent and flexible, reception were professional and attentive and the hotel is located in my opinion- the best area of London.

I found the Continental Breakfast choice to be limited, the toast and tea were served cold but that is a First World Problem and it did not ruin the stay.

Concierge were at hand with advice, door staff with a brolly and weather forecast too!

All in all a pretty good option but not the best...

Only one thing bothered me during our stay-
My wife required her coat from our car which had been valet parked, she enquired as to how to obtain it at the reception desk. Put simply the response was "It's in the car park, I'll have to walk and get it" and a look of - I am not walking to your car to get the coat-
My wife did not expect him too but she did expect a solution, taxi? Directions?.
My wife intended to pay any expenses and accompany him but the sole response was as unhelpfull as you could get!
My wife thought, come on, give me a solution, give me the details and I'll go and get it but no, the chap just turned away to give something else his better served attention.

London is unindated with good hotels charging £500 plus per night, most are good and worth the money but it is strange how sometimes it is the bad points that linger in ones memory.

Thank you all concerned.

Wonderful!

My wife and I stayed three nights at the Chesterfield last week. We've visited London many times over the years and stayed at many hotels. This is the best!

It is right in the middle of Mayfair and within walking distance of many of London's attractions. It is a short walk to Shepherds Market which is a lovely, quiet area with some great restaurants and a long and interesting history.

All the staff we met at the Chesterfield were friendly, helpful and professional. Checking in and checking out was efficient. Our room was clean, attractive, relaxing and very quiet - no traffic noise and no noise from within the hotel. The bed was very comfortable and the room had everything you could expect from an excellent hotel. Breakfasts were splendid!

This is a hotel that has obviously worked very hard to get its service to customers exactly right; all the details have been thought about carefully. This is not part of a big chain of swish, modern, mass-market hotels. This hotel has a history, substance, charm, quality and character. You can get cheaper and you can get (much) more expensive hotel accommodation In London; I'm not sure you could get much better.

Not only is this hotel extraordinarily beautiful and very comfortable, you are welcomed into the beautiful marble foyer as though the staff's favorite guest has returned. My room was beautifully appointed, with a gorgeous marble bath. Each night my bed was turned down, with a chocolate on my pillow. The Chesterfield is conveniently located to dining and nightlife and beautiful streets to stroll, yet nestled on a quiet street of gorgeous front doors and exquisite architecture. Tea at The Chesterfield is top notch. the sandwiches were perfection and the champagne flowed. The pastries were colorful and tasted as good as they looked. We went to the bar/lounge afterward to listen to the piano player. Wonderful way to pass the afternoon away before dinner. The staff is professional and caring and look to make your stay memorable and positive. The only thing about my stay that made me sad was when it was time to leave. You can pay much more for an exquisite hotel with a professional staff, but at The Chesterfield you don't have to. Loved every moment of my stay. Hope to return soon.

Myself and my wife came for afternoon tea for our anniversary on Thursday. We loved every minute of it. The staff were so friendly and attentive our waiter Eryk was fantastic. We loved the selection of teas and the cakes so much we kept asking for more! They truly blew us away when they came out with a special anniversary cupcake plate and the candyman gave my wife a red carnation flower. Her smile hasn’t subsided since this moment. We will definitely be back.
