"There are hotels to suit all upmarket tastes from modern to traditional, within minutes of Grosvenor Square"
Grosvenor Square is the second largest in London and takes its name from the Duke of Westminster's ancestral name. The Duke was one of the area's most ennobled residents (aside from the Regent at Buckingham Palace of course). The Duke, otherwise known as Sir Richard Grosvenor, developed the area in 1721, building the very grand Grosvenor House on the site whereGrosvenor House Hotel now stands.
Throughout the 18th and 19th centuries the Square was one of the most desirable addresses in London, with nobility such as The Earl of Derby building huge ostentatious houses to rival their neighbours. Plans were put in place by architect Colen Campbell to produce a palatial east side to the square featuring thirty Corinthian columns, but this rather over the top plan never came to fruition.
"A very American place - John Adams plaque - Eisenhower Statue - Roosevelt Memorial - Eagle Squadron Memorial - September 11 Memorial Garden"
The square has also had a notable transatlantic connection, for which it was briefly dubbed 'Little America', with American political leaders such as John Adams (the second president of the United States) and US ambassador Adlai Stevenson living and dying in the area. Dwight Eisenhower also established the square as an American naval base. The square is now home to many embassies and the American embassy has been proven to cause the most controversy, the building itself was designed by a modern architect, Eero Saarinen and did not sit easily with the Georgian town houses lining the rest of the square, and since 2001 the embassy has had anti-terrorist devices installed around it and the road nearby closed to avoid attacks, which caused public outcry that more wasn't done for nearby embassies.
The square has also survived protests for the Vietnam War in 1968, been immortalised as the setting for some of Oscar Wilde's best plays and witnessed fabulous parties held by the Bentley Boys in the 1920s. Although in recent years the square has been used primarily for official buildings rather than residential houses and the hedonistic parties have moved to other areas of Mayfair, it still offers visitors a glimpse into London's Victorian past and is well worth a walk around.
If you wish to stay near Grosvenor Square, you could take a rather expensive room in the Grosvenor House Hotel, which stands on the site of Duke of Westminster's original residence. Traditionally refined service, elegant bedrooms and historical secrets will ensure you have an intriguing and relaxing stay.
"Glamorous and sophisticated elegant, Claridge’s hotel attracts the true connoisseur of luxury"
Just off the square on Brook Street, is Claridges Hotel. This Brit style art deco hotel has a global reputation for 5 star quality accommodation. If you cannot afford the room costs then at least try the Afternoon tea.
If you find traditional English style a little fussy, you may prefer the minimal chic of the very stylish Metropolitan Hotel nearby. If you can't afford to splurge on Rihanna's favourite London hotel, The Washington Mayfair Hotel provides a slightly cheaper, mid-range option with classic contemporary interiors, just a few minutes walk from the square. Or you can stay in the Radisson Edwardian Berkshire Hotel, another reliable mid-range option, well placed for shops and attractions.
The Square is well placed for transport, with Marble Arch and Bond Street tube stations just a few minutes walk away. Both service the Central line; from which you can easily explore the rest of London. If you are arriving at the square from further afield, Green Park tube station is just a ten-minute walk away, which services the Jubilee, Victoria and Piccadilly lines. From here you have direct links to Victoria Station (where the Gatwick Express Train terminates); King's Cross St Pancras Station (where the Eurostar terminates); and Heathrow Airport, which can be reached via the Piccadilly line.
Once you have arrived at the Square you will find yourself at the heart of Mayfair, just down the road from major shopping districts Oxford Circus, Regent Street and Bond Street, London's Theatreland District near Piccadilly and London's largest green space Hyde Park. So if you want to party like the Bentley boys or simply live like one of the square's nobility you can fully experience this luxurious area.
Some one was asking are there any cheap hotels near to Grosvenor Square and of course the US Embassy.
Well of course this landmark in Mayfair, an uber expensive London area and has hotels to suit. However, all is not lost, if you are on a medium city budget then have a look at nearby Marylebone ( easy walk away) and Marble Arch (again an easy walk).
For rock bottom budget hotels near Grosvenor Square, then Paddington will be your ideal solution. About a 20 minute walk away.
