Sir Rocco Forte
Mayfair is in the heart of London and Brown’s Hotel is in the heart of Mayfair, boasting one of the most prestigious addresses in the city. The hotel is located within walking distance of key shopping streets such as Bond Street and Regent Street in addition to major theatres, art galleries and all key central London landmarks. It also sits on the doorstep of the stunning green spaces of Green Park and Hyde Park.
Brown’s Hotel has a fascinating history and has hosted many distinguished guests since it opened as London’s first ever hotel in 1837 and to this day this glamorous, five-star establishment welcomes guests ‘in-the-know’. It is from here that Alexander Graham Bell made the first ever telephone call; President Roosevelt stayed on his honeymoon and both Agatha Christie and Rudyard Kipling were so inspired that they penned many of their novels whilst staying here.
Olga Polizzi, Rocco Forte Hotels’ Director of Design, oversaw a £24-million renovation, which was completed in December 2005.
Brown’s Hotel personifies the refined sophistication of modern British luxury. Each room and suite is individually decorated and many feature antiques and contemporary artworks, creating an elegant and fashionable air. The Donovan Bar and HIX at The Albemarle celebrate British art and cuisine, and The English Tea Room offers an award-winning, quintessential English experience. A luxurious spa and state-of-the-art gymnasium offers a discreet sanctuary within this vibrant city.
117 luxurious guestrooms and suites, of which 29 are suites.
Brown’s Hotel was home to the first hotel restaurant (formerly guests had dined in the privacy of their own suites).
HIX Mayfair specialises in the finest quality British cooking. Executive Chef, Marcus Verberne and Director of Food, Mark Hix, have created an outstanding menu featuring great British classics alongside many lighter fish dishes - all using carefully sourced local, seasonal ingredients. At lunch, the carving trolley serves traditional roasts including Hay-baked salt marsh leg of lamb.
HIX Mayfair is home to an amazing collection of work by leading British artists including Tracey Emin, Michael Landy and Bridget Riley. With its beautiful wood panelling, vaulted ceiling and elegant green banquettes designed by the leading French designer Philippe Hurel, HIX Mayfair offers a truly glamorous, British dining experience.
