Location

Heart of London

Green Park and Buckingham Palace are only 5 minutes' walk from the front door of the hotel. Walk within minutes to Hyde Park, Winter Wonderland, Big Ben, Parliament Square, Downing Street, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus and more.

Mayfair's handsome architecture has made it a prime, very exclusive, location. For nearly 300 years the most influential people in the land have enjoyed its elegant squares, broad Georgian thoroughfares and beautiful parks. Mayfair's parks and gardens are some of the most beautiful and original in all of London, such as the Grosvenor, Hanover and Berkeley Squares. The US Embassy and many other diplomatic buildings are situated in Mayfair. A bustling social hub, Mayfair is full of people from all over the world. Beautiful squares make it a peaceful haven, not to mention a stunning place in which to live, work and shop.Samuel Johnson once famously said, "The man who is tired of London... is tired of life." Find out why even in winter this is true. A center of theatre and business, of history and the avant garde, London offers the perfect setting to experience everything from art and literature to science and commerce. If in the words of another famous Londoner "All the world's a stage" then London is certainly the perfect theater to study the world.
