The arrival of The Beaumont in 2015 was a hotly anticipated event in the Mayfair hotel scene. Much time and money were spent on the physical building, complete with the much talked about ROOM, a suite which, according to the hotel, allowed the renowned sculptor Sir Antony Gormley to create a cave like space for the occupant to withdraw and completely unwind.
The owners themselves are London restaurant celebrities in their own right: Chris Corbin and Jeremy King, who own some of London’s most popular and stylish dining venues. The pressure was on from the beginning for them to produce a show-stopper for their first venture into the hotel business.
This hotel will appeal to pretty much every luxury traveller. It has an awful lot going for it, first and foremost being its near perfect location in Mayfair, just the merest hop from Selfridges and the designer boutiques of Bond Street. However, as perfect and as beautiful as it is, there are some school-boy flaws in the creation of what should otherwise be the most glittering of hotel gems (as outlined below). But rather like that fabulous pair of Louboutins that you just had to have but pinch you ever so slightly, you forgive them because they are quite simply, gorgeous. The same can be said for The Beaumont.
Personally, I like this hotel a lot. The ambience and decor are sophisticated Americana, 1920s style. The polished wood throughout flows through the elegant bar and the restaurant and is very inviting and ritzy. And I’m obviously not alone in feeling this way: the venues are booked solid every night. If you’re looking for something fresh and new, head to The Beaumont. You won’t be disappointed.
