The oldest hotel in London, and one of the most historic, Brown’s opened in 1837. It’s been known for its understated elegance and quintessential Englishness ever since. Luxury, privacy and impeccable service define this Mayfair institution. An in-the-know kind of place, it has been patronised often and at length by British royalty, presidents and prime ministers, and famous writers.
Winston Churchill said, "I never stay in hotels. I stay at Brown's.” Which sums up its spirit perfectly. Today, its Georgian architecture and period detail have been given a 21st-century twist with contemporary decor by Olga Polizzi, modern art by Tracey Emin, and innovative British food by Mark Hix.
From its Mayfair position, Brown’s has Bond Street, Piccadilly, two royal parks and all the pleasures of W1 at its well-heeled feet
