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.
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.
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.
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.
How to Get There
You're in London, you just want to be in the middle of it all so that you can get out and explore this wonderful city. You don't need a hotel with loads of amenities and that's what we have here - a really well located place with nice rooms, bar, restaurant and very helpful staff. Expensive but, hey, it's Mayfair baby.
Rooms were clean but small. Staff helpful but not not overly friendly. Good central location though. Breakfast overpriced so we visited tesco express across street for fresh morning croissants. Would stay again but only if got same cheap online price.
Stayed here for a short 2 day stays. The room size is small, but i expected already. When i got into the room the bad was not tidied nicely and the mattress fells like it has been there for ages. On the second days, there was a flying small insect in the room.
Breakfast was so regular...nothing special.
Overall, i would say spend a bid more on your budget, you would get better hotel experience somewhere else.
Food was nice enough, but if you swerve bread and dessert, you're going to be walking into Chinatown straight afterwards for a main course!
For reference I had the lamb croquettes to start. Not setting the world on fire but nice enough. Got for dainty bites out of two croquettes.
The sea bass followed, again two very small pieces; nicely seasoned but ultimately unsatisfying.
This was a two course deal with a glass of wine. I chose the merlot and it was below average.
Great location; quiet and convenient. The hotel room was small but adequate. In general the hotel is a little outdated but I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a good deal in a great area.
