Attended a company meetings there. Main room was well laid out but a little warm for me. Plenty of water available. Food and drinks were served after the meeting with drinks readily available and food delivered quickly and in good quantity. The atrium was a little small and echoed a lot but that may have been a mistake on our part based on numbers.

FIVE STAR HOTEL BUT WORTH ONE STAR AFTER OUR STAY!
Money taken out my account without my authorisation for a package I'd already paid £500 for!!!
No explanation made, just an email with a refund invoice. Poor customer service.
Other faults voiced during our stay and no one has had the decency to follow up either.
Very disappointed for such a famous hotel.

Pleasant 5* hotel the hosted a gala reception for the Commonwealth Heads of State conference. Great location in the heart of Mayfair close to Green park and Berkeley Square. Nice décor and decent service. Room arrangement could have been better for our reception as there weren't many tables provided. Food was simple and repetitive canapés and not particularly creative

In 2004, a new era for The May Fair began. Having been bought by the prestigious Edwardian Hotels London, every single room in the hotel was transformed. New wings and floors were added, amid a stylish, modern effusion of glass and leather, marble and gold leaf. Just 30 months and £75 million later, The May Fair could once again announce itself to the world: ‘a hotel like no other’

Still to this day, eminent spaces remain. The Crystal Room’s spectacular Baccarat chandelier glimmers in past and present glory, and the private theatre’s acoustics are still felt to the core. A lavish bar continues to serve the classic and avant-garde, and a fine-dining restaurant still creates the delectable. Above all, 404 luxurious rooms and 12 of the capital’s most spectacular suites provide unforgettable experiences, and the later additions of the Cigar Room and the urban spa retreat ensure that The May Fair still competes in a league of its own.

And so it’s no wonder The May Fair is the official hotel to the British Film Institute and London Fashion Week, with its grand settings playing host to lavish product launches and fashion previews, auditions, dress rehearsals and film premieres.

Famed for hosting outrageous parties overflowing with champagne-infused debauchery in eras past, today The May Fair is celebrated for its elegance and charm. Yet nowhere is, or has ever been, more renowned for its discretion.

Bound by secrets that will never escape, The May Fair is a fortress of tales. But it’s not just discretion and luxury service that keeps guests returning. High security, private entrances and CCTV all ensure that everyone can stay and not be seen – unless of course, that’s exactly what they wish.
