For a very special stay in London, the award winning five-star Beaumont Hotel takes some beating. The hotel's stunning Art Deco building overlooks Brown Hart Gardens located on Balderton Street, a surprisingly quiet road away from all the tourists in the heart of Mayfair and the whole of London for that matter.
Packed with beautiful Art Deco features, the hotel features 50 rooms and 23 suites and studios. The finest suite is The Roosevelt, photo above, which occupies the whole of the fifth floor. Superior rooms have balconies that overlook Mayfair.
By far the most unique and unusual suite in the hotel is the Antony Gormley designed Room. Resembling a giant squatting transformer modelled from Lego from the outside and dominating the left-hand side of the building, the suite’s interior features a lush sitting room with Gormley framed drawings, a marbled bathroom and a bedroom featuring huge wood-panels stretching all the way up into the statue’s square skull. Paradise for art lovers.
Almost unbelievably, the hotel's building began life as a multi-story car park in 1925, having said that Wimperis and Simpson’s design has been noted by Historic England as highly ambitious for a car park of that time. It is now grade II listed.
The Beaumont's glamorous Colony Grill Room has established itself as a firm favourite on the London dining scene, while the Magritte Bar, the hotel's 'American bar' serves classic cocktails and stylish snacks. Guests also enjoy exclusive access to the Cub Room, plus a refined spa, gym and salon. Service, as you would expect at such a prestigious hotel, is always superb.
The hotel is very close to Selfridges on Oxford Street, perfect if you enjoy a spot of shopping and is just a few minutes’ walk from Bond Street Tube station. This makes it very easy for you to explore the rest of the capital, whether that's a stroll in one of the parks or visiting one of the capital's numerous world class attractions.
