London’s Luxury Hotel Scene
London has long been well renowned for its world-class luxury hotel scene, boasting an impressive arsenal of award-winning high-end establishments. With more and more openings each year, the capital’s locals and visitors to the city are treated to brand-new arrivals regularly, with new places popping up at a rapid rate.
We’ve taken a look at some of this year’s openings that we here at Blend Group are especially excited about sending our valued clientele to.
1 Hotel Mayfair
Having opened in mid-July, we love 1 Hotel Mayfair not only because it’s a unique high-end hotel, but because of its eco-focused ethos and impact. Overlooking Green Park and housed within a renovated and reconstructed old building, the hotel has been described as London’s ‘first mission-driven sustainable luxury hotel’, having reduced its reliance on carbon by 4,200 tonnes and used sustainably sourced and recycled materials throughout construction.
Quality has in no way been compromised, with guests able to stay in luxurious Terrace, Skyline and Penthouse suites, as well as dine in the on-site Dovetale restaurant, which is overseen by double Michelin-starred chef Tom Sellers.
Mandarin Oriental Mayfair
Also boasting prime real estate in London’s Mayfair neighbourhood is the city’s second Mandarin Oriental hotel. Sitting on Hanover Square, the current home of Vogue House, the luxury powerhouse has stylish neighbours and an even more stylish interior, as designed by Tokyo-based studio Curiosity. Following the success of the Mandarin Oriental Knightsbridge, the Mayfair edition will come with exceptionally high expectations.
Raffles London At The OWO
Freshly opened this summer, Raffles London sits proudly in the historic Old War Office building (OWO). With a past associated with wartime leaders, the intelligence and espionage services and crime writers, the OWO has been meticulously restored to take on its new role of home to this luxury hotel.
Situated in Whitehall, and within walking distance of Buckingham Palace, Westminster and Covent Garden, Raffles London is taking reservations from October. Amongst the world-class facilities is the Guerlain Spa, masterminded by the legendary French beauty brand and instantly making the new hotel one of London’s premiere wellness spots.
