A Prime Location Amidst Natural Beauty and Culture

Nestled on Berkeley Street, overlooking the lush expanse of Green Park, this nine-story sanctuary is a stone’s throw away from verdant spaces like St James’ Park and Hyde Park. The hotel’s strategic location offers easy access to sophisticated boutiques, West End theaters, and renowned museums, including The Royal Academy.

With 181 keys, comprising 137 rooms and 44 suites, 1 Hotel Mayfair caters to a diverse range of guests. Notably, it boasts the largest one-bedroom Penthouse in Mayfair, offering sweeping views of Green Park.

Culinary Delights and Impeccable Cocktails

Food enthusiasts will be delighted by Dovetale, the ground-floor restaurant helmed by internationally renowned Two Michelin-starred chef Tom Sellers. Adjacent to it, Dover Yard, a signature cocktail bar and lounge, dazzles with a locally-sourced drinks program. For lighter fare and artisanal coffee, head to Neighbours, a lively café during the day and a charming bar by night. All three restaurants have some plant-based as-is options on the menu (although, we hope to see them add more in the future!).

Environmental Responsibility at Its Core

1 Hotel Mayfair has opted for reconstruction over new construction, showcasing a commitment to sustainability. Built to BREEAM Excellent standards, it repurposed 80% of the existing structure to minimize its environmental footprint. Biophilia-inspired design is evident throughout the hotel, with living green-trellised exterior walls, moss walls in guest rooms, British Oak flooring, and Welsh slate bathroom vanities. More than 200 plant species and 1,300 individual plants flourish across the property.
