Living it up in London, England
Despite "living in the lap of luxury", I didn't sleep well. I think I was tired but full of adrenalin after an anxiety ridden day. That plus the fact that the alarm woke me up at 4.45am and I couldn’t turn the darn repeater off. I had followed the directions and …
Today we visited Parliament at Westminster Palace. We were extremely fortunate to have a high ranking contact in the House of Lords. Lord Ian McColl, a member of the House of Lords, is Judge Hay's brother. He was kind enough to give us a guided tour of the entire palace. We started in the Robing Room. This is the room where Her Majesty The Queen is …
The flight to London was rather painful. I had a hour and a half layover in Minneapolis, where there was a copious of snow on the ground. We departed at 9:45 p.m. and landed at 11:00 a.m. I planned on taking the Heathrow Express (a modern high-speed train directly to the city) into town. Right after I purchased my ticket however, I was informed …
Arrival "When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford" - Samuel Johnson What a great quote about London. There is so much to see it is almost overpowering. I have been to many big cities in my lifetime but there are none that I have wanted to visit more than London. A lot of that comes from my …

Historical Traveler Reviews Washington Mayfair Hotel London
I got ugraded
I stay frequently at the Hotel. on my last visit they upgraded me to one of their state rooms without any extra charge! When asked why, well becuase it was the 5th time I was staying with them and this was there way of saying thank you. Well this is my way! Thanks Annette
Home away from Home
The Hotel was an excellent find, a stones throw from Green Park, Bond Street, Oxford Street and Theatreland - what more could you want, saved so much on travel. It was our first time in London and we found that the concierge was excellent and made our trip even more memorable and the rest of the staff were very accomodating, made us feel at home. The breakfast buffet and the restuarant are highly recommended as well.
Mind Blowing Food & Service
I went to the Madissons Bar the other night on a date. Had a lovely time with my girlfriend in the bar - Great pianist, setting the perfect romantic atmosphere. We then went for candlelight dinner in their restaurant....WOW.....what an experience. the best salmon I have ever had complimented by excellent service. We had such a good time that we decided not to take the train home and stayed the night. What a lovely good night sleep!!! YOU MUST GO.....
The Wonderful Washington
What a fantastic find! The Washington is a privately owned hotel, right in the center of London. We were able to get to the theatre and see all the sights. very easily from here. Upgrade if possible to one of the mini suites - the jacuzzis are great!! Everyone was so friendly and helpful and not stuck up.
Love the Washington!!
Wonderful hotel, in a excellent location. The service was brilliant, and so was the room. I advise you to eat in the restaurant aswell!!!
A hidden Gem
The Washington Mayfair is a hidden gem in the heart of London. We stayed for 2 nights and were very impressed by the size of the rooms, quality of food and especially the staff. Location was ideal to get around London and see all the major sites and we found it well worth the visit. Would recommend it to anyone.
The Washington Mayfair Hotel is great!
The Washington Mayfair Hotel is a great place to stay near Piccadilly Circus. It's one block off the main road so it's quite, yet convenient to many fine restaurants and shops. The tube is a short walk from the hotel so all of London is practically at your doorstep. The food is great esp. breakfast. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There's a Kinkos, and Starbucks just up the road. You can catch a Hop-on-hop-off tour bus nearby as well. A 25 minute taxi ride from Heathrow to the hotel is around $50.00. After a long flight with lots of luggage it's worth it. This hotel is a hidden gem in London.
Best Hotel in London
After looking around and comparing pricing / location ratio. This is the hotel that resulted in the best accomodation, direclty in the middle of everything.
We stayed at the Washington for a week in early May. The room and breakfast was excellent and the staff was helpful. We loved the location in Mayfair as it was central to many attractions either by foot or a couple of tube stops. Quiet neighbourood with many high-end restaurants nearby. Internet access (Kinko's) very close by for homesick travellers!
Excellent location. Close to all amenities and attractions. Staff very friendly. Food above average. We felt as though nothing was too much trouble. Not too over the top and we felt at home.
