A contemporary take on classic English style in one of London's most loved hotels.
Quintessential Englishness is the signature of this top London hotel. The Connaught has always attracted guests with the understated class that the nation is famed for. A hushed elegance and feeling of premium comfort provided by quality British service is illustrated by the high ratio of staff to guests. From the outside the building doesn’t even look much like a hotel, with its red brick façade fitting perfectly with its Mayfair neighbors. In fact, the hotel has never sought to be fashionable; instead it has the feel of a grand country house transplanted to London. Marble fireplaces, oak paneling and wonderfully ornate ceilings in the public areas add to the atmosphere. Rooms and suites have undergone refurbishment by leading designer Guy Oliver, who has painted the walls in a range of period colors, including peppermint green with silver leaf and Edwardian slate. Bathrooms have been fitted with Grecian Thassos marble, solid nickel taps and enameled cast iron baths. While tradition is very much to the fore, the needs of the 21st century are not forgotten with Wi-Fi access and divine treatments at Aman Spa. Dining and drinking options include French cuisine at Hélène Darroze at the Connaught, the bistro-style Espelette and the clubby Connaught Bar.
