THE BEAUMONT HOTEL
History & Story
The Beaumont is an independent, five-star hotel, much praised for its outstanding levels of personal service. The architecturally Protected 1926 building is in the heart of Mayfair, within a few minutes’ walk of London’s finest art galleries and luxury shopping. The hotel’s position on a quiet, historic garden square, yet so close to all that is happening in London, is oft-mentioned as one of the most appealing aspects of the hotel. Evoking the elegance and personalised hospitality of pre-war Mayfair, it is grand in style and yet warm and welcoming.
The interior design of The Beaumont has been realised by Richmond International, in close collaboration with Jeremy King.
Main Strengths, Special Touch
The Beaumont is praised for its “timeless, old-world elegance with a wicked edge”. The intimate size of the hotel – only 73 rooms – means every guest benefits from a very personal touch. In addition to its magnificent location, The Beaumont boasts a number of distinctive features: The American Bar and The Colony Grill Room have quickly become a magnet for London’s people ‘in the know’, whilst The Cub Room is a cosy private bar and lounge exclusively for the hotel’s guests.
The Beaumont is superbly located in the heart of Mayfair on a quiet, landscaped square, yet within sight of Selfridges and a few minutes’ stroll from the luxury shops on Duke Street, Mount Street, South Audley Street and Bond Street, the green spaces of Grosvenor Square, Berkeley Square and Hyde Park, and Mayfair’s many art galleries.
