Hotel Introduction
It’s rare for a five-star luxury hotel to be family owned, but the Athenaem boasts both the upscale amenities that sophisticated travellers desire, as well as a distinctly welcoming atmosphere that comes from its family dynamic. Overlooking Green Park, guests reap the benefits of a beautiful tree-filled surrounding while being immersed in exciting Central London.

The 123 rooms and suites offer a wide variety of styles, allowing you to choose the accommodation that best suits your needs. The Athenaem also provides 33 one- and two-bedroom townhouses connected to the hotel, perfect for families or longer stays. The apartments, rooms, and suites are each decorated in a unique style, though all are elegant and include all modern essentials such as plasma TVs, wireless Internet service, and CD and DVD players.

The ground floor of the hotel recently experienced an opulent overhaul, making it an even more luxurious spot to relax with a drink or conduct business. Other lovely amenities inside the Athenaem include sumptuous dining and elegant tea service, an indulgent spa, and an entire floor dedicated to meetings and events.

Dining
The Athenaem takes British fare to a whole new level. Calling it “essentially English,” the hotel serves up delightful dishes such as Roast Organic South Down Lamb and Steak and Ale Pie that change seasonally. Tea time is where the Athenaem really shines, providing considerable options such as herbal and infused teas, delectable sandwiches, fresh scones and crumpets, homemade jam, clotted cream, tea cakes, homemade pastries, and even champagne.

Spa
The spa and salon is provided solely for the pleasure of hotel guests alone and is an ideal venue to rejuvenate after a hectic day of sightseeing and shopping. The 24-hour gym provides a full-body workout, while amenities such as a Jacuzzi, sauna, and steam room relax you. A long list of treatments—all performed with products from Aromatherapy Associates—includes delights such as massages, facials, body wraps, manicures, pedicures, and more.

Hotel Features
The Athenaem takes tea seriously, and even with stiff competition throughout the city, it received the Top London Afternoon Tea 2008 Award of Excellence from The Tea Guild.

The Whisky Bar at the Athenaem boasts a selection of over 270 whiskies, including labels from all over the world and even distilleries that no longer produce.

Meetings
You’ll find everything you need to conduct business at the Athenaem, where one full floor is dedicated to meetings and events. Confidentiality is assured through private entrances, while the graceful décor—including silk wall coverings and walnut accents—sets an elegant mood. Tools such as broadband access and plasma screens ensure all events go off without a hitch.

Location
The hotel is situated in the heart of Mayfair, opposite Green Park and within easy walking distance from the West End. From the nearby tube station, Green Park, it is only 5 stops to the City and 1 stop from Victoria station from where you can get a shuttle train to London Gatwick airport. London Heathrow is also easily reached by just one tube from Green Park, while London's other airports are also within driving distance. Valet parking is available from the hotel.
