“Beautiful Schiaparelli Suite”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

I stayed at the May Fair Hotel last May as part of my good friend's Hen weekend. We stayed in the Schiaparelli Suite which was beautiful. The suite was very retro and was pink and gold- such beautiful decor. The hotel staff were friendly and accommodated us. We had a really great time.

Fantastic celebrations. Six adults in total.
Service was brilliant, attentive but not over the top.
Sandwiches, cakes kept being top up constantly & fresh boxed up of what we all liked for taking home. Enjoyed the sweeties offered as we left as well.
Considering visiting here again for further celebration & recommended to many.

Stayed here with my husband as a Friday night treat. We had a deluxe room which was very small. Although we checked in after 6pm, the minibar was almost empty & we had to request several times for it to be restocked. Bathroom was a fair size with bathtub & overhead shower. We dined at Quince, food was average but pricey. Our room rate did not include breakfast & we noticed that breakfast prices were quite excessive. We checked out & had breakfast at a nearby cafe! Overall, a tastefully decorated hotel, with a great bar but small rooms & very average service!

Stayed here on my wedding night and the hotel could not do enough to make it special. Upon arrival I was greeted by a friendly doorman who took my bags and showed me in. While checking in I was upgraded to a suite as it was a special occasion. I was taken up to my room and showed around, and my bags followed quickly behind. The room was amazing, spacious, clean and very comfy. The bathroom was HUGE. As it was my wedding day I got changed into my dress and made my way to reception where a lovely man named Jeremy informed me that he had arranged for a chauffeur driven Mercedes to take me to my wedding. An absolutely perfect surprise. The day went well and my new husband and I arrived back to the hotel where everyone I had seen previously that morning enquired about the day and wished us well. When we got back to our room there was a card and a bottle of champagne waiting for us. Small touches which really made our day that bit more special and memorable. We ordered room service which arrived quickly and was hot, cooked well and super delicious. Probably the best steak I have ever had. The bed was luxurious and we had a fantastic sleep. All in all, the best stay I have had, anywhere in the world. Thank you so much for making our day so wonderful. I will definitely be returning.

Great hotel in a brilliant location. Bar is fantastic, pretty busy, but always a good atmosphere Not the cheapest you'll find but value for money, and real quality in terms of service and staff. Always worth a visit when looking for a place that's something special.

The hotel is in a very convenient location for all the main London attractions, the room was clean and spacious and the hotel facilities were impossible to fault. However, it was the unobtrusive attention of the staff that really made the holiday for us. It was a special birthday for my wife, and the hotel sent up flowers, champagne,strawberries in chocolate and beautiful orchids. And they upgraded our room. Really impressive! Nothing was too much trouble, even though the hotel was very busy with Easter visitors.
The only down side was the racket in the corridor outside our room as noisy and inconsiderate clubbers returned to their room further along at any time from 3.30am to 5.15am ! We didn't complain to the hotel about this, however.
As an international business traveller I have stayed at Marriotts and Intercontinentals in various cities, but none can compete with the standard of service we experienced at The May Fair.
This is the first- and probably last- time I have posted a review on Tripadvisor. I just felt I should compliment the hotel in this forum.
We will be back.
