As evidenced by the presence of King George V at its opening in 1927, The May Fair hotel, in the heart of London’s tony neighborhood of the same name, was designed with greatness in mind. Today, a natural complement to May Fair’s endless selection of top restaurants, trendy boutiques and revered arts outlets, the hotel remains an urban Eden for celebrities and international sophisticates.
Now, on the heels of a $150 million renovation that included the addition of 12 new Signature Suites, The May Fair hotel is more exclusive than ever. To showcase the hotel, a new dynamic website has been launched, www.themayfairhotel.co.uk, whose aim it is to introduce the traveler to the true luxury feeling that the hotel casts. The website, which is filled with striking images of The May Fair’s rooms and public spaces, has detailed information for consumers, travel agents and meeting planners, detailing the most minute of characteristics, from information regarding The May Fair Bar, to the renowned gym and spa and Palm Beach Casino, which includes the Gold Room VIP gaming area, featuring a private entrance separate from the casino and hotel.
Along with the website’s arresting imagery, the new site also boasts innovative features such as: the comparison calculator, a function which allows visitors to compare up to three of the hotel’s 12 Signature Suites; suite fact sheets, which offer dimensions, floor plan and specifications; the “Suggest a Suite” option, wherein a hotel representative will contact site visitors to discuss bookings; images and descriptions of every room in the hotel; downloadable restaurant, bar and spa menus; meeting and conference room floor plans; and the ability to make restaurant reservations online. The website also offers online booking and access to last-minute deals.
The new website is also coupled with a new site explicitly featuring The May Fair’s 12 new Signature Suites, each uniquely appointed, from opulent to understated, and designed to host leisure travelers, product launches and business executives with equal ease and grace. At www.themayfairsuites.com, visitors get an up-close look at each suite. Here, step inside the Penthouse Suite’s sprawling limestone bathroom, a calming cocoon of sparkling silver tile complete with a deep sarcophagus tub and soothing rain shower. Other musts on your virtual Penthouse Suite tour include the second bedroom for a peek at its revolving bed and a span of outdoor terrace that is illuminated by night and features unmatched London skyline views
Beneath these beautiful surfaces lies a wealth of world-class amenities and services, which have to be experienced to be believed.
