The hotel offers guests an elegant dining experience in the Tiger Green Brasserie, which serves modern fusion cuisine. The Berry Bar & Lounge specialises in cocktails made from the most quintessentially British spirit, gin, and also serves a range of afternoon teas in comfortable, colourful surrounds. Mayfair is the centre of fine dining in London, so it is worth exploring beyond the hotel. Mirabelle is the Michelin starred restaurant where Johnny Depp and partner Vanessa Paradis once spent £17,000 on one meal, but not all customers are expected to be so flush. The Hard Rock Cafe, just a five-minute walk from the hotel offers a cheaper, family friendly alternative, or you can try Italian restaurant Tempo in Curzon Street nearby if you want something a little more sophisticated. For those on a shoestring budget, you can treat yourself to an artful sandwich at The Rose Bakery, or you can pop to the Starbucks, Caffe Nero or Prêt a Manger cafes nearby, where you can also get free Wi-fi.
The hotel is well located to see the best of central London, to the west you can walk to Oxford Circus, Regent Street or Bond Street, a shopping area that includes over two miles of high street and designer shops; pop in to Fortnum & Masons for a mouthwatering afternoon tea; or Piccadilly where you can keep kids entertained in the Trocadero amusement arcade, or see grisly and wondrous sights in Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum. To the east, you are just a ten-minute walk away from royal residence Buckingham Palace, where you can watch the Changing of the Guard and see the guards' famous bearskin hats. You can also reach department stores Harrods and Harvey Nichols, which are both ten minutes walk away or visit London's largest green space, Hyde Park, where you can go horse riding, ride the Serpentine's solar powered shuttle boat or just take a picnic.
If you head north, you will come across many of Mayfair's renowned fine art galleries tucked away in the winding streets. You can also visit the Royal Academy of Arts, which is home to Constables, Turners and Hockneys alike. You can also watch something thought provoking at the Curzon art house cinema or visit the Marble Arch built by John Nash in 1833.
The hotel is very well located for transport, just two minutes walk from Green Park tube station, 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. If you are driving to the hotel, it is situated just off the main A4 road, which can be accessed via the M4 and M25; however, guests should note that the hotel is in the congestion charge zone.
If you choose to stay at this hotel, you definitely won't be disappointed in the location, although if you were hoping to stay somewhere with a bit of traditional English eccentricity you may find this a bit too modern. Guests should be aware that rooms near hotel lifts can be noisy and the lifts are small, so disabled customers may wish to request a room on the ground floor, and those with a lot of luggage may need to engage the porter's services. This hotel is also 100% non-smoking and no pets are allowed, so it's best to leave the family dog at home.
