Grosvenor House, A JW Marriott Hotel

Classic style in glamorous Mayfair
VERIFIED LUXURY
Grosvenor House, the first JW Marriott brand hotel to set up shop in the United Kingdom, occupies a stately building on the site of a former townhouse belonging to the Grosvenor family (also known as the Dukes of Westminster) on Park Lane overlooking Hyde Park in Central London.

The hotel originally opened in 1929 but was rebranded as a Marriott in 2008, preceding a head-to-toe renovation. One of the larger hotels in the area with 420 spacious rooms and 74 suites, Grosvenor House offers a contemporary décor that’s well-suited to international travelers, featuring crisp linens, dark wood furnishings and cool marble bathrooms stocked with Aromatherapy Associates toiletries.

Our Inspector's Highlights
• The hotel’s Mayfair location means you’re minutes from some of the city’s best shopping on Oxford Street as well as museums and attractions like The National Gallery and Big Ben.

• Despite its storied heritage dating back to 1929, Grosvenor House, A JW Marriott Hotel boasts a classic contemporary design style that’s well suited to international business travelers and those who appreciate a touch of British club-style without the stuffiness.

• A spacious fitness center ensures that you’ll be able to keep you with your workout routine during your stay at this London hotel. Or opt for a brisk jog through nearby Hyde Park.

• For a taste of traditional London, head to The Park Room and its adjacent Library. These spaces replicate traditional British stately home environs and serve as a spot for enjoying casual international bites throughout the day as well as the setting for a full afternoon tea.

• With over 60,000 square feet of meeting space, the hotel is a prime spot for conventions and business gatherings.
Things to Know
• The Great Room, one of the hotel’s largest meeting spaces, used to house the ice rink where Queen Elizabeth II learned to skate.

• The best time of year to drop in this Park Lane hotel is in the summer. London sports rather gloomy and chilly weather most of the year whereas the summers are warm but not overly hot.

• If you’re looking for a quick breakfast on the go instead of indulging in a full English at JW Steakhouse, the Park Lane Market offers a wide selection of coffee drinks and small pastries.
The Rooms
• Rooms boast a cream and yellow color scheme with dark red and green accents, which add a touch of British taste to the space.

• King-sized beds are dressed with crisp linens while dark wood and leather furnishings like a work desk and oversized armchair let you spread out.

• Room amenities, which include an iron and ironing board, bottled water, a safe and a stocked mini-bar, ensure that you’ll feel at home during your stay in London.

• We also especially like the sleek and cool white marble bathrooms stocked with Aromatherapy Associates toiletries — after a long day of shopping, donning your robe and taking a nice long bath is just what’s needed.
The Restaurants
• True to the American hotel chain’s heritage, you’ll find juicy steaks, classic salads and traditional chophouse dishes at the airy JW Steakhouse located on the ground floor.

• For something a bit more Brit-influenced, dig into oysters and game terrines at Corrigan’s Mayfair, helmed by celebrated chef Richard Corrigan.

• The Park Room serves casual lunch and dinner fare while The Library re-creates a posh British literary milieu for light bites throughout the day.

• The Red Bar sets the stage for cocktails, or you can knock back a jigger of whiskey at the aptly named Bourbon Bar.
