First opened in 1927 by King George V, the hotel was later bought by Hollywood’s Danziger brothers, who introduced star-studded opulence and debauchery – including a pool bar with live caiman crocodiles. But their lasting and most important legacy was The May Fair Theatre, a 201-seat private screening room that makes the hotel the natural choice as the Official Hotel of the 64th BFI London Film Festival in partnership with American Express.

Just like its neighbourhood, The May Fair Hotel embraces and embodies the essence of culture, entertainment and gastronomy – all under one roof. May Fair Bar is the scene for cocktail collaborations and pop-up residencies, whilst contemporary dining is enjoyed at award-winning flagship restaurant May Fair Kitchen. Dynamic atmospheres are contrasted by harmony in the 404 spacious bedrooms and suites, as well as in the tranquil May Fair Spa. A five-star hotel with an incredible location, The May Fair is a short walk from Bond Street and Green Park.
