ABOUT THE HOTEL
The official hotel of London Fashion Week and the London Film Festival, The May Fair Hotel is perfectly located just North of Piccadilly, in easy walking distance from abundant fine dining, sight-seeing and the shops of Bond street, Saville Row, and Oxford street.
THE SUITE EXPERIENCE
A huge terrace, cool leather sofas and a sumptuous bedroom may be enough to satisfy normally. But the Ebony Suite sets new standards for opulence with its bathrooms, where amenities include two Toto Washlet toilets from Japan, with the heated seat, and integrated push-button bidet with massage and drying capabilities. Add to this a dedicated hair and make-up area, a shower that sprays you from all directions and speaks multiple languages and a luxuriant bathtub that glows in all the colours of the rainbow.
At Quince restaurant, Chef Silvena Rowe bring the flavours of the Middle East to London, by plundering 500 year old recipes from the Ottoman Empire, reviving them with an eye to healthy eating, and serving them family style.
A sumptuous retreat with the feel of a jade rainforest in the heart of Europe’s largest city, the spa offers an array of treatments for men and women inspired by the scents and tastes of the seasons.
