Brown's Hotel London

Understated elegance in central Mayfair.

by 19 February 2015

In the heart of Mayfair, one of London's most desired locations, Rocco Forte’s Brown's Hotel has a fascinating history and has hosted many distinguished guests since it opened as London’s first hotel in 1837. The hotel is perfectly positioned, just moments away from the famed Bond Street boutiques, Dover Street Market, The Royal Academy of Arts and many independent art galleries.

Brown's personifies the refined sophistication of modern British luxury drawing in-the-know guests from around the world. The hotel has undergone a renovation at the hands of Olga Polizzi that blended fresh colours, mosaic floors, and antique furnishings with the original historic wooden panelling, gilt mirrors and stained glass. Its ageless good looks, combined with the jazzy glamour of the Donovan Bar and a moving, shaking guest list, have made it one of London’s must-stays.

A distinctive mix of old and new in each of the 117 bedrooms blends exquisite styles and a vintage feel giving a distinctive charm to an otherwise classic hotel. All of the rooms come with complimentary Wi-Fi, interactive entertainment, iPod docking stations as well as bathrooms in Bush hammered limestone, Bisazza mosaic and Carrara marble.

The hotel is also home to one of the best restaurants in London, the HIX Mayfair, where traditional British flavours are handled deftly and with sophistication. Executive Chef Lee Streeton and Director of Food Mark Hix deliver beautiful dishes where every plate is as much of a work of art as the Tracey Emin and Bridget Rileys that hang on the walls. Our menu favourites include mixed beets with Cachel blue and Norfolk treacle tart with clotted cream. 

There is also a traditional tea room, not to be missed, and a bar that serves some of the best cocktails in town.

The Spa at Brown's has a highly commended staff, and treatments including manicures, pedicures and massages. The 24 hour gym is also perfectly suited to those who want to keep-up with fitness whilst travelling.
