Biltmore Hotel poised to open in London

The Biltmore hotel in Mayfair, London, will open next week and become the first European hotel to join Hilton's LXR Hotels & Resorts brand.

Located on Grosvenor Square, the hotel has been developed by Hilton and Millennium & Copthorne Hotels and has undergone a multimillion-pound renovation following its closure last summer.

The luxury hotel will have 257 guest rooms, 51 suites, flagship restaurant The Betterment, alfresco terrace, cocktail bar and lounge, large fitness centre, a 500sqm ballroom with capacity for up to 700 guests, and several smaller meetings suites.

“LXR is designed to bring together the best of luxury in global destinations,” says Patrick Fitzgibbon, Senior Vice President, Development, EMEA, Hilton.

“The Biltmore, Mayfair is a stunning addition to the new collection and prestigious extension to Hilton’s growing luxury portfolio in London.

“Guests will experience first-class service in the heart of Mayfair, and the unique craftsmanship and historic surroundings of the hotel will make for a truly memorable stay.”

LXR is a collection of luxury independent hotels. Its first member, the Habtoor Palace in Dubai, opened last year.

Martin Rinck, Executive Vice President and Global Head Luxury & Lifestyle Group, Hilton said: “LXR properties are truly best-in-class hotels, known for their distinctive character and unrivalled service.”
