Living lavishly in the throes of royalty in London may not be possible for all at Buckingham Palace but The Connaught in Mayfair is an exceptional luxe experience to be added to your list. Located a stone’s throw from Harrods and the infamous Hyde Park, The Connaught boasts a prime location in Mayfair snug between Marble Arch, Bond Street, and Hyde Park Corner stations. The grandest of welcomes and greetings are given by the distinguished doormen as you enter the sleek foyer of beaming opulence and luxury and you’re immediately encapsulated by the grand windows and marble finishes. The Connaught offers an array of rooms, suites, and signature townhouse & apartment stays that deliver a profound level of prestige and excellence through the small details of antique finishes, breathtaking city views, fluffy white robes, and slippers, as well as luxurious toiletries (including a coveted Dyson hairdryer). Room rates can start between 900-1,400 £ for double and single rooms, while suites can start between 1,500- 4,000 £. For signature suites and the apartment, it’s recommended to call or email for further inquiry on price.
While the quarters of your stay are a massive selling point for frequenting The Connaught, they also command excellence in their selection of restaurants and spa amenities. Indulge in the Connaught Patisserie where you can experience a seasonal changing menu of delicious cakes and pastries, especially the ever-so-instagrammable Connaught Hound. For a farm-fresh fair, visit Jean Georges for a relaxed and informal setting for breakfast and all-day dining or an afternoon tea while you bask in the sun-soaked dining area lined with lavish windows and sunroofs. For A Michelin-starred experience, dine in for a glitzy lunch or an unforgettable night out in this blush-shaded and romantic setting at Hélène Darroze.
