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 neighborhood, 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 personalized 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, colored toothbrushes, and access to a complimentary non-alcoholic minibar 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, alfresco 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 neighborhoods 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.
“We are delighted to be opening The Biltmore Mayfair, Europe’s first LXR Hotels & Resorts property, on London’s prestigious Grosvenor Square,” said Simon Vincent, President, EMEA, Hilton. “Bringing contemporary luxury to Mayfair, guests will experience outstanding hospitality, including dining by Chef Jason Atherton, in remarkable surroundings that truly capture the spirit of London and British luxury.”
Jason Atherton will oversee food and beverage for the hotel’s extensive event spaces, including the impressive 500-square-meter ballroom, ideal for large-scale events, weddings, or cocktail receptions, with capacity for up to 700 guests. For more intimate functions, the Waterloo and Manhattan Suites can hold up to 80 and 100 guests respectively, while the Kendal Suite lends itself perfectly to up to 40 guests. The hotel also boasts a state-of-the-art fitness suite.
“The exceptional, singular service that is consistent across all LXR Hotels & Resorts, paired with the personalized attention offered by The Biltmore Mayfair is truly unparalleled,” said Feisal Jaffer, Global Head, LXR Hotels & Resorts. “We look forward to creating a distinctive sanctuary from where our guests can experience the best of London.”
