1 Hotels has opened reservations for its UK flagship and first European destination, located in the heart of London’s historic Mayfair.
Anticipated to open on 13 July 2023, the nine-story sustainable sanctuary, 1 Hotel Mayfair, overlooks Green Park, and is steps away from the world-class galleries, sophisticated boutiques, first-class restaurants and renowned emporia of Bond Street, Berkeley Square and Piccadilly.
1 Hotel Mayfair consciously creates an unexpected fusion of sustainability and luxury in the fashionable heart of London’s most exclusive hospitality district, while within walking distance of capital highlights such as The Royal Academy, the West End theatre district, and Buckingham Palace.

“We are delighted to bring nature and our mission of sustainable luxury to Mayfair, the very heart of London, one of the most important travel markets in the world,” said Barry Sternlicht, 1 Hotels Founder and Chairman of SH Hotels & Resorts. “We are thrilled to bring our unique fusion of fresh comfort, conscious sustainability, exceptional bespoke service, understated elegance, wellness and nutrition to London.”
“We’ve reimagined the traditional luxury hotel experience for Mayfair by infusing our love for nature with effortless sophistication,” said Raul Leal, CEO of SH Hotels & Resorts. “With this opening we celebrate our distinctive brand’s entry into Europe and the dynamic and culturally rich city of London.”
Opting for reconstruction over new construction, this urban oasis, built to BREEAM Excellent standards, utilised 80% of the existing structure, which was repurposed to minimise adverse environmental impact. Living green-trellised exterior walls transform former hard surfaces into natural vertical landscapes.
Atop the building, two new complete floors were added and introduce 35 suites with floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive outdoor spaces overlooking Green Park, one of London’s eight Royal Parks. The double-height Green Park Penthouse Suite features a sprawling footprint of 274 square-metres which makes it the largest 1 Bedroom Suite in Mayfair. The Green Park Penthouse can be further expanded to 2 bedrooms at 304 square-metres (and 3 bedrooms at 340 square-metres). It features a wrap-around terrace and retractable sliding doors that open fully to sweeping and dramatic park views.
All 181 rooms including 44 suites invite guests to rest, revive and restore in an enveloping nest, warmly welcomed by walls lined with native British moss and more than 200 local and regional plant species thriving throughout the property. At every interior turn, guests encounter works exclusively commissioned from nature-influenced local artists designed to provoke a sense of closer connection to the venerable landscape of Britain.
The property features a restaurant under two Michelin-starred chef Tom Sellers, a cocktail bar, cafe and The Bamford Wellness Spa.
Online, reservations are being accepted from 1 August 2023.
