The May Fair Hotel
Opening during the decadent jazz age of the 20s, the May Fair Hotel, on Stratton Street, Mayfair, has long reigned as a place of entertainment and leisure. Named after the neighbourhood it proudly resides in, it was opened by King George V and Queen Mary to great fan fair.
Over the following decades the hotel rolled with the times, hosting the best jazz bands of the 20s and 30s, installing a private cinema and theatre as the golden age of Hollywood kicked off in the 50s, and opening a lavish bar with a pool of waterfalls and real-life crocodiles in the 60s. You won’t find any exotic animals today, but The Crystal Room bar, opened in 1985, still dazzles under its grand chandelier made by crystal specialists Baccarat, and the May Fair’s renovation in 2004 expanded its grandeur to 404 rooms, 12 suites, and an urban retreat spa.
It still maintains a solid relationship with those in the business of showbiz, as an official partner to the BFI London Film Festival. Clint Eastwood and Matt Damon filmed scenes from Hereafter in the hotel and pop star P!nk used it as the location for two of her music videos.Read More
Their decadently outfitted rooms have also been deemed fit to be the official hotel of London Fashion Week. The Schiaparelli suite inspired by the famous surrealist designer is a particular favourite with fashion editors when they’re in town.
A number of rooms are designed for specific requirements for a more tailored experience. Speak to the booking teams about their family, business class, and accessible rooms to see how they can best accommodate you. In addition, the Curzon Wing can be booked for larger parties requiring more privacy between one suite and two bedrooms.
Between 2012 and 2014, the May Fair was featured in the Cool Brands UK guide three years running for their stylish glass, leather, marble and gold leaf décor, unending list of star guests, and exquisite restaurant, bars, and casino.
