The Connaught, London
Classic Luxury Hotel | City Setting
Carlos Place, London, W1Y 6AL, England
The Connaught has a hundred-year tradition of providing premium comfort and attentive service, and its recent renovation ensures that while its signature style and commitment to luxury never change, it keeps pace with evolving technology. Since its inception in 1897, the Connaught has had only six general managers, which explains how a hotel of this stature also guarantees personal, thoughtful service.
The dining and lounge options at the Connaught include two outstanding restaurants and two chic bars. Many hotels offer concierge service, but few do it in the splendid manner of the Connaught. The concierge and butler staff tag-team all efforts to ensure that guests’ needs both internal and external to the hotel are met. As soon as you check into a suite, your personal butler meets you at your room to introduce all of the luxury inside; all butlers are also expertly trained in technology.
The rooms and suites are decorated with en eye to both classic and modern details and given the Adam-style interior treatment, focusing on formality, symmetry, and simplicity. Every room includes luxurious touches such as personal 24-hour butler service, unpacking service on arrival and packing service upon departure, fresh fruit and flowers, and luxury bathroom amenities from Asprey. Subtly integrated technology includes iPod docking stations, flat-screen televisions with international TV channels, and Wi-Fi or broadband Internet access.
Hélène Darroze at the Connaught is the hotel’s newest restaurant offering. Its eponymous chef, drawing inspiration from her native France, has already earned one Michelin star for the gourmet eatery. Espelette is a casual, bistro-style restaurant that serves clean, simple cuisine from southern France. The Connaught Bar, with its Edwardian-style architecture and decorative details ranging from Cubist to 1920s Irish, is a stylish destination for a beverage or a bite to eat. The Coberg Bar creates a chic, intimate ambience in which to sip a fine wine or cocktail.
The hotel was built in 1897 and christened the Coberg Hotel after Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg. In 1917 it was renamed the Connaught after Queen Victoria’s third son, Prince Arthur, the Duke of Connaught.
Two refined event spaces are ideal for business meetings or exclusive gatherings. The Georgian Room, which hosts private parties for up to 12 guests, presents an elegant décor courtesy of celebrated designer Guy Oliver. With space for up to 40 people, the Regency Room hosts larger meetings and soirees in spacious, luxurious style.
The Connaught commands a discreetly grand position on the corner of Mount Street and Carlos Place, right in the heart of London's prestigious Mayfair Village. Berkeley Square, Grosvenor Square, Bond Street, Park Lane and Hyde Park are all just moments away, as are many of London’s finest art galleries, coveted fashion boutiques and world-renowned tourist attractions.
