The Athenaeum Hotel has a quiet yet enthusiastic world following. Word of mouth promotes this hotel and quite right too. The guest reviews are amazing, as is the location.
With an address on Piccadilly alongside the likes of the Ritz, the Athenaeum Hotel & Apartments is something else entirely: a small, family owned five star hotel. Its reputation has grown to worldwide status while the hotel itself has stayed small and exclusive, just the way its regulars like it. Taking its name from one of the most famous clubs of nearby Pall Mall, the Athenaeum is a home away from home for those with a true passion for London, in-the-know socialites and jet-setters who want warmth and familiarity on every visit.
The regal building looks out on the trees of Green Park, with the splendour of Mayfair and St James's Park around. These most refined of neighbourhoods are home to Bond Street, the Royal Academy of Arts, Piccadilly Circus, and many of London's most celebrated shops, tailors, boutiques, galleries, and restaurants - all within a short walk of the Athenaeum. Green Park Tube Station is also near at hand, providing links in six directions on the Piccadilly, Victoria, and Jubilee lines. There is direct service to Heathrow Airport and the Gatwick Express is just one stop away at Victoria station. For those arriving by car, an off-site valet parking service is available.
The rooms and suites reflect a sole aim of genuine English sophistication, integrating the effortless aesthetic with updated technology including WiFi internet, DVD players, air conditioning, and high pressure showers. Many rooms feature rare views over the park to Buckingham Palace, a crowning feature of this address. For residents in need of greater living space, the 33 apartments occupy a secluded row of Edwardian townhouses connected to the hotel, each with a design as individual as its occupants. A redesign of rooms to even higher 21st century standards is scheduled for completion in May 2009; fortunately, there will be no disruption to guests while this is ongoing. Travellers with pets will be pleased to know that they may be accommodated in both the hotel and the apartments.
Food and drink at the Athenaeum is as distinctive as everything else about the hotel. The restaurant features 'Best of British' specials, offering a new selection of classics at every meal. For the essential afternoon tea, this is the only hotel in the city to work with Laduree of Paris, serving their world famous macaroons, own blend of teas, and house Champagne. For whisky aficionados, on the other hand, the clear highlight is the legendary whisky bar with more than 270 choices.
Visitors can indulge more than just the taste buds in a leading luxury spa for the exclusive use of guests, fully featured with sauna, 24 hour gym, and a lengthy menu of detoxing treatments. An expert hair salon completes the package. This regimen is perfect to prepare for a stress-free event at the hotel, where an entire floor is dedicated to staging meetings for the power brokers and private celebrations to mark the great moments in life. The Athenaeum is truly a world class institution in a small package.
