Plush velvets and flamboyant grandeur in a well-equipped Mayfair palace.
Once a part of the Radisson Group, this hotel has moved away from the chain's traditional image and adopted its own uniquely flamboyant identity. The 406 bedrooms feature deeply textured fabrics, Catalan-designed furniture and beautiful Sicilian marble bathrooms. Headboards are a key feature and are bold, quilted or squared in leather or plush fabric; beds are fitted with Vi-Sprung mattresses and covered in more pillows than anyone could ever need, so sleeping like a baby is guaranteed. Wi-Fi is free, and Phillips digital systems provide entertainment. For guests who wish to spoil themselves, twelve signature suites are decked out in brazen colors and styles for the modern-day dandy, and one Penthouse Suite sits alone for the ultimate in privacy. The May Fair does not claim to be anything but exclusive, and high-rolling guests have access to the Palm Beach Casino in the former Grand Art Deco Ballroom, which features one of the largest gaming rooms in London and offers a wide variety of games including American roulette, blackjack and three card poker into the wee hours. The hotel is also home to the largest private screening room in the capital.
