Enhancing its stellar reputation, the Mandarin Oriental tonight (23 November) plays host to C&IT's exclusive Brand Book Live event, an annual roundtable gathering of corporate and agency event planners.

The Asian hotel group's only UK propery overlooks Hyde Park and Knightsbridge and features 167 rooms, including 26 suites.

Dining options include the double-Michelin-starred Dinner by Heston Blumenthal and French bistro Bar Boulud, while the Mandarin Bar and Rosebery Lounge both serve cocktails and the latter afternoon tea.

Event spaces at the property include a ballroom – where the Queen learned to dance with her sister – with 24-carat guilding and floor-to-ceiling windows, and five further meeting spaces, capable of hosting 650 delegates in total. The Royal Suite can also be transformed into an executive boardroom.

Elsewhere, the award-winning spa boasts a heated pool, fitness centra and offers a range of treatments across eight private rooms.
