The visually-striking property was originally conceptualized as an upscale parking garage.
Vibe and atmosphereWhile grandiose in style, the beautifully appointed rooms and public areas are intimately welcoming. The glam Colony sports noir-esque murals from artist John Mattos, while modern-day Hemingways and Fitzgeralds make the stylishly sober American Bar their permanent writing nook.
Overall look and feel of the roomsRooms and suites at The Beaumont have been designed with the guests' comfort foremost in mind. They feature floor-to-ceiling sliding doors that close the rooms off from their private entrance halls, have opulent mosaic and marble bathrooms, and are adorned with vintage art, photography and books.
Service styleMixing traditional hospitality with elegance and grace, The Beaumont knows how to deliver classic service with seasoned staffers. Valets will help you unpack your bags after checking in; event organizers can organize intimate dinner parties in the exclusive Cub Room; and gentlemen stop by the Salon for a traditional wet shave before a night out on the town.
Preferred room typeMayfair Suites are generously spacious and have remarkable views of the Brown Hart Gardens. Silks, velvets, bronze detailing and subtle geometric period patterns create a calm relaxing environment perfect for business or pleasure.
Unique property featuresConceived by artist Antony Gormley, ROOM is an inhabitable art installation extending from atop the hotel. Open the thick velvet curtains and adjust to the subtle darkness as you melt into the cloud-white bed that's seemingly floating in the middle of the one-bedroom suite.
What goes on thereThe former hot spot for 70s playboys is reemerging as an upscale hang. Men suit up to smoke cigars with the British elite at the legendary Annabel's; trendsetters hunt for designer frocks at Duke Street Emporium and Whistles; and artists like Ai Weiwei premiere their latest works at the Royal Academy of Arts.
