London like any cosmopolitan city is home to a wide array of hotels to accommodate all types of travel; from short business stay to leisure and relaxation.
One very captivating hotel in the heart of London Westminster is the luxury 5-star Brown’s Hotel in Mayfair. Founded in 1837 it is situated in the center of Mayfair and provides fantastic access to the famous Bond Street, Regents Park, Hyde Park, the crown jewellers Garrard’s, the Royal Academy of Art and the world famous galleries of St James. Brown’s Hotel is a stone throw from the London Underground as well as other forms of transportation.
James and Sarah Brown are the proud founders of Brown’s Hotel. In 1889, they purchased St George’s Hotel in Albemarle Street which backed onto Brown’s and combined the two hotels. The historic mark of this merger is still visible to this day as the entrance of the hotel proudly embraces two mosaic panels in blue and gold representing the legend of St George and Brown.
The hotel has been host to many notable personalities over the years one being Alexander Graham Bell in 1876, on his travels to demonstrate his new invention the telephone. Brown’s hotel hosted the first ever successful telephone call in Britain.
The hotel underwent a £24 million refurbishment in 2004, a year after it became part of Rocco Forte collection of Luxury hotels and reopened in December 2005.
