I booked the Valentine package, see their website for details, this includes;

- Red rose
- Card
- Selfridges voucher
- Chocolates
- Bottle of champagne
- Disposable camera
- Valentine dinner
- Midnight feast

Upon entering the staff do their very best to welcome you, after checking-in, reception called to see if the room was OK and asked if we needed anything else.

The room was a little cosy (as expected in London), we had a "classic double", everything was very clean, the bathroom in white marble, with a heated floor and mist free mirror. There was plenty of storage space, tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryer, plus everything you'd expect of an expensive London hotel.

Dinner was in their resturatant, again the staff were very attentive, the food was great (from a special set menu).

Didnt have time to try the midnight feast, but it sounded great. The only black mark, was the loss of our breakfast order, it was collected, as a newspaper was on the door in the morning, a quick call to reception fixed it.

Overall a great way to spend valentine's day with your special lady.

We stayed in the Chesterfield for a short valentines break and we weren't disappointed. The standard room was not overly large, but clean and well appointed (although a little chilly to begin with). A courtesy call from reception after 5 mins was a nice touch. The hotel was quiet and the staff were very attentive. One disappointment was the restaurant. We dined there on our arrival night for convinience and the food was distinctly average, and overpriced (£90+ for two starters, two mains, coffee and a bottle of wine). The wine list was comprehensive, but again, very pricey even for London. On this basis we didn't have breakfast throughout our stay, opting for the Pret round the corner.
Overall a well located, clean, attentive hotel let down by an average restaurant.

Excellent.... !!! The staff in the hotel are just sensational. I can not ever remember having such a welcoming and helpful group of people outside of a Japanese hotel - from the check in staff to the maids and housekeeping people this place is totally customer centric. It is a small boutique hotel with a quite good restaurant and a bar that is open 24/7. The rooms are small, but well appointed. And of course its location in the heart of Mayfair just a quick walk from Picadilly, Bond St, etc is not to be beaten. I will stay at this hotel again without any hesitation.

My wife and I spent four nights at the Chesterfield Mayfair - and did I make points for picking the hotel!!! Must admit - I made the reservations after looking at reviews on this site - and this seemed like the best value. I was on business and actually spent one night here a week prior to my wife's arrival just to make sure the reviews were correct - YES. We do not understand why it is not rated 5 stars - perhaps it is a bit smaller than typical 5 stars. We took advantage of their Mayfair Weekend special found on their website - check it out. Anyway - heated marble floors in the bathroom, wonderfully decorated bedroom, clean up service 2 times a day in the room, wonderful, cozy bar, absolutely WONDERFUL Full English Breakfast (make sure you ask for it to be included in your stay). The Maitre D in the restaurant could not have been more helpful. Have them deliver it to your room if you like. I tried to find a staff member who was not in a good mood - unable to - like a cruise - all in a good mood and helpful. Location is also GREAT. Located in a quiet area of Mayfair - highest real estate prices in London. A few blocks off beaten path - quiet. Walking distance to New Hyde Park (wish I had my bike there), we walked to two plays. Discount shopping about a 10 minute walk north (mile long set of shops). Fell in love with a pub two blocks away (Lion something) - take a left out of the hotel and you run into it. Pub meals are excellent - and great piano player on Saturday night. Less than 10 minute walk to the tube - and sightseeing bus stop. I cannot even begin to explain how this hotel's location is right in the thick of things. It is about 3 blocks from Princess Di's Hairdresser - Nickie Clark. Careful - the gym that is included in the hotel (a block away) is closed on weekends. We really cannot wait to go back - hope they don't raise the prices too much with all this great feedback I've read on this site. Have FUN!!!

My daughter and I stayed just one night at The Chesterfield and took advantage of the promotion found on the hotel's website that included a full breakfast. The hotel was warm, clean, safe and very British. Breakfast was a huge cold buffet as well as hot offerings from the kitchen; a real treat. Though not the least expensive room in the city, for about $200, it was, for two of us, worth every penny. Plus we got to leave our bags there the next day while we were out exploring.

Frankly not much to add to what has already been said. Met up with a good friend in London and decided to stay here. It is a very nice property in a upscale part of London, but aside from the attentiveness of the staff (which isn't a bad thing) there was NO snobbiness. In spite of our being there on a "drinking weekend" we got no sideways glances or the like. Mind you we weren't in the room with chainsaws or anything, just a few jars of ale is all.

My only even remotely negative comment is that the hotel is a bit further from theatres, main sites etc. But if you want to be close to Green Park and Hyde Park (morning walk or run - lovely) it is ideal. Best of all - the hotel is a tremendous value compared to others of its ilk. Go Chesterfield!

My wife and I stayed at the Chesterfield Mayfair for two nights in January. The hotel is wonderfully located for the West End, for shopping and for the major tourist attractions. It can all be done on foot if you are of average fitness. You see so much more on foot.

From the moment the door was opened for us to the moment we left, the experience was delightful.

We had a standard room and although not huge, it was beautifully decorated and appointed.

We were not able to experience the delights of the dining room as dining for both nights had been pre-arranged but we will certainly try it next time.

The breakfast was excellent with the full English being prepared to order.

However, the thing which places this hotel at the top of my list is the staff. Every member of staff was friendly and highly efficient. Nothing was too much trouble and the attention to detail was exceptional.

The only slight niggle was the prices in the bar with two gin and tonics costing £15.50.

If you are not sure where to stay in London, try the Chesterfield. You will not be disappointed.
