THE DEBUT property of 1 Hotel’s mission driven portfolio, 1 Hotel Mayfair arrives just in time for the demanding summer season, offering vacationers and staycationers alike, a tranquil escape from the energetic capital.
Overlooking the open spaces of St James Park, Hyde Park and Green Park, the latest addition to London’s ever-growing luxury hotel roster is an impressive culmination of 137 rooms and 44 suites, including the largest one-bedroom penthouse in Mayfair.
Situated within the heart of the vibrant west end, visitors are spoilt for choice when it comes to local amenities, but with a ground floor restaurant – Dovetale – run by two starred Michelin chef Tom Sellers, as well as an in house spa, cafe and cocktail bar, there is little reason to leave the residence.
Continuing to epitomise a modern approach to luxury, 1 Hotels erected their latest jewel with sustainability firmly in mind. Built to a BREEAM excellent standard, the hotel impressively utilised 80% of the pre-existing structure, and embraced biophillia-inspired design and practices, including living walls and plant beds in each bedroom.
