The Biltmore, Mayfair is set to open in September as LXR Hotels & Resorts first UK property. The luxury hotel will be located in the heart of Mayfair on Grosvenor Square.

After a multi-million-pound redevelopment, following its closure in early July 2018, the hotel will offer 257 guest rooms and 51 suites. LXR Hotels & Resorts is Hilton's luxury brand.

Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, EMEA, Hilton, said: "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."

The Biltmore will contain modern restaurants headed by internationally-renowned chefs, a year-round alfresco terrace, an exclusive cocktail bar and a large gymtech fitness suite. 

An impressive 500 square metre ballroom is ideal for large events, with capacity for up to 700 guests for a cocktail reception. 

For smaller events, the Waterloo and Manhattan Suites are suited to more intimate receptions of up to 100 guests, and the Kendal Suite is ideal for small groups of 25 guests or boardroom meetings.

Tan Kian Seng, interim group chief executive officer of Millennium & Copthorne Hotels plc, commented: "With its prime location, bespoke products, and quintessential services under LXR, The Biltmore, Mayfair will be fit for royalty, well-travelled guests from around the world and senior corporate executives."
