Hotel Introduction
After nearly 175 years, Brown’s has maintained its place as a charming, luxurious, and intimate hotel dedicated to the needs of discerning travellers. The first hotel ever to appear in London, it opened its doors in 1837. It still carries the classic English style that Brown’s is known for, but a 24 million-pound renovation has also brought complete modernization.

Even the dining options at Brown’s are delightfully and exclusively English. Albermarle serves classic English cuisine in an elegant environment, while the English Tea Room has been an afternoon staple since the 1830s. The full-service spa allows guests to unwind with a large variety of pampering treatments.

The 11 Georgian townhouses that make up the property offer a lovely collection of 117 rooms and suites—all individually designed to reflect a warmth and sophistication befitting Brown’s. Soft colours are the perfect backdrop for the upscale furnishings and materials, while the hand-selected artwork, antiques, and books attest to the hotel’s commitment to the little things.

The Albemarle is the recently relaunched gourmet restaurant inside Brown’s Hotel. Executive Chef Lee Streeton has crafted a menu of classic British fare that uses fresh, seasonal ingredients to deliver intensely flavourful dishes that range from light to rich. The elegant décor, including graceful wood panelling and vaulted ceilings, creates an enchanting atmosphere in which to enjoy lunch or dinner. The English Tea Room, home to an award-winning Traditional Afternoon Tea, surrounds guests with decadent food and piano music. The Donovan Bar is a chic, fashionable lounge that pays homage to British photographer Terance Donovan, adorning the walls with over 50 of his signature black-and-white prints.

The Spa at Brown’s Hotel is a tranquil space filled with candles, gentle music, and soothing colours. Three treatment rooms—including a two-person suite—have been appointed with dedicated changing and shower facilities and are temperature controlled for guests’ complete comfort. Choose from an extensive treatment menu featuring indulgences such as massages, facials, body wraps, hand and foot therapies, and beauty essentials.

Hotel Features
Agatha Christie wrote At Bertram’s Hotel while sitting in the English Tea Room, and Rudyard Kipling created The Jungle Book while staying at Brown’s.

The banquette seating area at the Donovan Bar is known as the “naughty corner” because it contains some of the photographer’s more risqué photos.

If business is on your agenda, the six function rooms at Brown’s provide an ideal combination of opulent decorative features such as antique pieces and natural daylight, while also incorporating the technology that professionals require. Whether personal or professional, each event receives individual attention from the dedicated hotel staff.

Superbly positioned on a peaceful 18th-century London street in Mayfair, just a stone’s throw from the Royal Parks and Buckingham Palace, The Rocco Forte Brown’s hotel is the perfect location for exploring some of London’s finest addresses. The hotel is just minutes from the elegant designer stores of Bond Street, the art galleries of Cork Street and St James's, the vibrant theatres of the world-renowned West End and the calm, open spaces of Green Park.

From London Heathrow take the Heathrow Express to Paddington Station and then transfer by tube or train to either Green Park Station (0.2 miles from the hotel) or Piccadilly Circus Station (0.4 miles). From London Gatwick take the Gatwick Express into Victoria Station and then transfer to either Green Park Station or Piccadilly Circus Station.
