Overview

A stylish room at a four-star Art Deco hotel in London's salubrious Mayfair, with breakfast included

The Lowdown

London’s chic Mayfair has long been a favorite with visitors to the city for its upscale atmosphere and proximity to top sights. At The Washington Mayfair Hotel, you’ll enjoy a heft dose of both. Constructed in 1913, this modern abode maintains much of the style and opulence of its Art Deco origins. Its restaurant serves high-end international cuisine, as well as delicious afternoon teas of finely crafted cakes, sandwiches and scones with lavish helpings of clotted cream. At the bar, you’ll find an extensive list of wines, champagnes and cocktails, while the large bedrooms are light and elegant.
You’ll also be perfectly located for exploring the bustling capital. The hotel is just a stone’s throw from such major attractions as Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace and Bond Street, and a short walk from the top shopping and entertainment areas of Oxford Street, Regent Street and Shaftesbury Avenue. So whether you’re here to soak up some sumptuous surroundings or experience the best of what London has to offer, you won’t be disappointed.

Rooms

Superior rooms offer an elegant space, with dark-wood furnishings and a leather king-sized bed. The luxurious en-suite bathroom has both a bath and power shower.

Dining

Madisons Restaurant offers a classic menu and excellent wine list. The food is a mixture of nostalgic British and modern international flavors, offering an easy dining choice in the heart of Mayfair. Afternoon tea is popular here, and Madisons Bar is a stylish spot for relaxed drinks.

Location

The hotel is located on Curzon Street, one of the most fashionable addresses in Mayfair. Just doors away is the Curzon Mayfair Cinema, London’s swankiest picture house, complete with royal box and wine bar. Green Park station is a few minutes’ walk from the hotel entrance and Hyde Park is not much further. Staying here, you’re also excellently positioned for reaching the shops of Regent Street and Oxford Circus, as well as Fortnum & Mason on Piccadilly.

Awful

Avoid this hotel. I just tried to write a review on their Facebook page and it’s only accepting good reviews, not negative reviews.

Upon arrival, the staff were nice enough to let me and my wife have afternoon tea after 5pm. That is the only Good thing they did.

Afterwards we noticed things weren’t up to standard because the tv didn’t work, the bath tap was broken and their was “grease” around the bath rim. Also when we came in from our night out, we couldn’t get into our room because the key didn’t work.

The duty manager initially offered a discount on an upgraded room for our next visit ? Why would I come back to hotel of such bad standard ?

He then only offered to deduct breakfast from our bill as a means to make up for their shabby crap hotel. He then proceeded to say to me that if only I’d told them sooner, like when I checked in, he would have upgraded our room.

When I spend close to £300 for 1 night, I expect the general mod cons to be working !!!!!

I could have spent 1 night in a travelodge, the bill would have been astronomically cheaper and I’m sure that the bath plug would have been working.

I have sent an email to the general manager and I am expecting feedback at some point next week.

Awful standard. Avoid at all costs.

room was far too small, not that clean and the staff not that friendly, very difficult to understand them or having a conversation or trying to solve a problem. as usual they took my credit card and charged £100
by checkout they said they charge it back. but this doesn’t happen, after 10 days i called them and then they did it. not very trustable i think. breakfast was just a bit more than nothing and what they had wasn’t that good... so, all of them speak a very bad english what was really not very helpful during my stay. it wasn’t my first stay, but in hope they turned into friendly and a better english i booked again... now, never again...

Nice but room for improvement

Myself and my partner stayed here for one night. Upon check in and throughout the staff were lovely and couldn’t do enough for us.

The room was nice upon a first glance but when you had a more in depth look it was rather dusty in obvious places, the cupboard had a loose handle and there was a bitten apple left in the mini fridge. We didn’t mention this to the hotel staff as we aren’t too fussy and don’t like to complain really. For the amount of time we spent in the room it wasn’t a huge issue for us. The rooms could do with a bit of a more thorough, final check over before guests are due in. I think the hotel nightly rate is a lot of money for the standard of rooms provided.

The reception area, bar and restaurant were lovely. The breakfast was fabulous, one of the nicest breakfasts I have had during a hotel stay.

Location was brilliant. Really easy to get about to local attractions and it is tucked away on a quiet street. Very impressive.

Web site was difficult to understand and navigate and before I knew it I mistakenly booked two rooms for the same night that I was making my reservation, not for the nights I wished to stay. i know how to use a computer and had never had anything like this happen to me before. When I called to ask if they could simply apply these charges to the nights I wanted I received a flat out "no" they were completely inflexible, and i was charged the full charge for the two rooms I didn't want. Just unbelievable. Needless to say I am not going to stay there for the dates I need, and I am going to my company's legal team to see if there is any recourse. It's absolutely shocking that they would not simply apply the charges to the nights I wish to stay instead, perhaps with a small fee for the trouble.
