The Mayfair Hotel



The Mayfair Hotel

A hotel steeped in celebrity history and style

Location: Stratton Street, Mayfair, W1J 8LT

Description: The May Fair is a legendary luxury hotel with a glamorous past - it was first opened by King George V and Queen Mary in 1927 on the site of what was once the Duke of Devonshire's London home.

It offers over 400 luxury hotel bedrooms, including 12 of the capital's most memorable hotel suites, a discreet spa, a fine-dining restaurant and the quintessential London Casino.

In the 1950s it was owned by the American Danziger brothers, film impresarios who founded the New Elstree Studios and made a succession of smash hit films.

The hotel completed a $150 million renovation in November 2006.

Recent celebrities to stay here include Paris Hilton, Peaches Geldof (who gets to stay for free), Ronan Keating, Michael Owen, Whitney Houston, Louis Walsh, Lindsay Lohan, Ashley and Cheryl Cole.

Paris Hilton stays in the distinctly pink Schiaparelli Suite. Named after the Thirties fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli, it's a lofty, open-plan room with plenty of full-length mirrors and Chinese silk. All suites also come with their own butler; Paris Hilton's took her shopping at Harrods.

Whitney Houston has favoured the Azure Suite, which has gold-leaf tiles on the bathroom walls and its own kitchen, while the penthouse has an 80ft roof terrace.
