The Biltmore, Mayfair is set to open as LXR Hotels & Resorts‘ first UK property, following an agreement between Hilton and Millennium & Copthorne Hotels. The luxury hotel, situated in a prime location in the heart of Mayfair on Grosvenor Square, London, will open for business in Spring 2019, marking the new brand’s European debut.
The hotel, which will be known as The Biltmore, Mayfair – LXR Hotels & Resorts, has undergone a multi-million-pound redevelopment following its closure in early July 2018. Designed by Goddard Littlefair, the hotel will offer 257 luxuriously appointed guest rooms, many with views over Grosvenor Square, as well as 51 highly curated and beautifully designed suites, which will reflect the property’s origin as a sophisticated London private residence.
LXR is a collection of independent hotels distinguished by an unrivalled commitment to personalised attention and luxurious, yet locally immersive experiences for guests. Last year, the collection welcomed its maiden hotel in Dubai at Habtoor Palace, a 234-guest room luxury hotel situated on Sheikh Zayed Road.
Patrick Fitzgibbon, SVP, Development, EMEA, Hilton, said: “LXR is designed to bring together the best of luxury in global destinations. The Biltmore, Mayfair is a stunning addition to the new collection and prestigious extension to Hilton’s growing luxury portfolio in London. Guests will experience first-class service in the heart of Mayfair, and the unique craftsmanship and historic surroundings of the hotel will make for a truly memorable stay.”
“The Biltmore, Mayfair will be fit for royalty, well-travelled guests from around the world and senior corporate executives, ” said Tan Kian Seng, Interim Group CEO of Millennium & Copthorne Hotels plc.
