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
Really helpful concierge service on arrival but the reception staff were not helpful. The lounge areas and hallways were nicely decorated but the bedroom furniture was dated and the wood was chipped. The breakfast was basic and expensive at £22 a head. For a £300 room I would expect more. I wouldn't stay here again.
Ate here in July, food and service was superb. Changed menu in October, wasn't as impressed and service although pleasant wasn't as good. Won't return enjoyed it the first time, should've left my experience there
This hotel needs a lot of updating.
I stayed in room 301 and can’t decide whether I was sleeping above a tube, below a flight path, or the rickety lifts were causing the rumbling every two minutes.
The bathroom was particularly poor, with cracked tiles, a jacuzzi bath that didn’t work and numerous hairs left from previous occupants.
There was also no iron in the room, though I was brought one when I rang reception, and none of the plug sockets offered a USB charging port.
I appreciate that it’s Mayfair, and this is probably the cheapest hotel you can stay in, but I unfortunately I don’t think I’ll stay again.
On the plus side, it’s a five minute walk from Green Park and does have a gym, though this isn’t stated on the website.
