The Biltmore Mayfair opens its doors today as Europe’s first LXR Hotels & Resorts property — Hilton’s collection of luxury hotels. The 307-room hotel combines exquisite contemporary accommodation, stunning views across the gardens of Grosvenor Square and innovative culinary concepts by Michelin-starred restaurateur Jason Atherton, creating the ultimate urban sanctuary in the heart of Mayfair.
A new jewel in the prestigious neighbourhood, the hotel unites 20th century grandeur with modern architectural details. Guests looking for an elegant escape can book into one of the 57 beautifully designed suites where, for special occasions, they can enjoy personalised embroidered pillowcases and monogrammed bathrobes. Quintessentially British amenities by Penhaligon’s are provided in all bathrooms. Instead of a traditional minibar, guests who book one of the hotel’s eight signature suites will have access to a quilted, leather-encased cabinet holding full-size bottles of champagne. Even the hotel’s youngest residents will feel perfectly pampered in the signature suites with their own bathrobes, coloured toothbrushes and access to a complimentary non-alcoholic mini bar throughout their stay.
The Biltmore Mayfair, is also home to the capital’s most sought-after new restaurant concepts from world-renowned restaurateur Jason Atherton:
The Betterment features a seasonally driven menu, from locally sourced fish and meats that are wood-fired to signature salads and plant-based dishes.
The Pine Bar operates as a sophisticated bar with classic cocktails, exceptional wines and delicious bar snacks, including home-cured charcuterie.
The Tea Lounge, located within the hotel lobby, is ideal to enjoy one of London’s finest afternoon teas and indulge in a selection of homemade sandwiches. Guests can also enjoy sweet delicacies including a Dorset spice apple cake and lemon and lavender macarons in the Writer’s Corner.
Finally, within the heart of the hotel is The Terrace. Open all year round, the relaxed, al fresco area is surrounded by stunning floral arrangements, sweeping greenery and glimmering fairy lights, making it the perfect spot to drink and dine under the stars.
With a host of iconic landmarks and neighbourhoods on its doorstep, including the home of bespoke tailoring, Savile Row, and exclusive retailers on Bond Street — the hotel is a decadent retreat to experience the best that London has to offer.
