Why We Like This Place

  • An air of elegance pervades this historic hotel. The Crystal Ballroom features Austrian crystal chandeliers, cathedral windows and gold leaf, and is ideal for your wedding ceremony. Picture cocktails and hors d’oeuvres by the fireplace in the exquisite hotel lobby or in the intimate London Grill. The Mayfair Ballroom is spacious enough for dining and dancing, and even boasts a stage.
  • You and your guests will enjoy a comfortable stay in opulent guest rooms and suites. They provide an organic bamboo bathrobe and slippers so that you can cozy up and savor the experience, plus the luxury beds with down duvets ensure you’ll get your beauty sleep!
  • Service is top priority. Whether you’re hungry for a midnight snack, need a little loosening up, or want to work off your pre-wedding jitters, their in-room dining service and the hotel’s fitness room are available around the clock—and you can have a massage in your own room.
