Reviewed 11 September 2009

I too attended a networking event at the Mayfair recently held in the stunning Penthouse Suite.

Staff were friendly, helpful and attentive and the food was great with the best King Prawns I've ever tasted.

I don't know what the normal guest rooms are like but from the rest of the hotel they must be of a high standard. The only downside to my visit was seeing Peaches Geldof!! ;-p

We had a gorgeous penthouse room with splendid views over the city.
The decoration was trendy, yet warm and comfortable.
The friendly smiling staff were always happy to help and did their work with lots of care and thought.

I've stayed at the May Fair several times and it's been mostly ok.

First the good:

Great location, very nice bar and restaurant and great service in both. Rooms are good and have B&O televisions and free Wi-Fi.

The bad:

The rooms overlooking Berkeley Street are ridiculously noisy at night between midnight and 4am. When I stayed in June I specifically asked NOT to have one of these rooms, but was given one anyway. Having a four year old in tow I didn't complain until the next day. We got a smaller room that was ok, but absolutely quiet enough.

At checkout, the assistant manager only gave me £20 off the bill when I insisted that the room rates were different. He was rubbish and in complete contrast to the excellent staff in the restaurant and bar.

Other times I've stayed on my own or for a wedding and apart from the noisy rooms all has been fine (and weekend rates are pretty good).

The moment you walk in you know that this hotel experience is going to be a an excellent one. The website clearly gives justice to the style and ambience a real statement! You are made to feel like a VIP as soon as you check in, the staff are attentive and nothing is a problem. when you arrive at your room the theme continues with attention to detail (KIng Deluxe Room) is superb from the B&O TV, Ipod Doc, comfortable Bed and quality fixtures and fittings. I did feel like a King! albeit for one night. The May Fair bar is a great place to take in the atmosphere of the Hotel, a real buzz!! and if your hungry the Amber Restaurant I would suggest you try if you're not venturing out.

First of all: If you're looking for a quit business hotel don't bother looking into the May Fair. The last years the hotel has become a celebrity hot spot and therefore the hotel is buzzin'. The location is very central, just of piccadilly and close to all the shops and parks. Our deluxe room (621) was large for London standards and fitted a nice kingsize bed. Bathroom with separete shower, nice and spacious.
The staff was overall very friendly, the doormen were helpfull keeping the photographers ands fans outside...

Nice and trendy bar with great food (take the bento box for two) and some nice wines by the glass (try the Villa Maria Sauv Blanc, best sauv for the buck in imho).

We skipped the hotelbreakfast and tried some places in the neighborhood (try napket snob food, great!)
