The Millennium Hotel London Mayfair, which was closed for renovation last year, will reopen as The Biltmore, Mayfair under Hilton’s new LXR Hotels & Resorts luxury hotel collection.

The luxury hotel, situated in a prime location in the heart of Mayfair on Grosvenor Square, will open for business in Spring 2019, marking the new brand’s European debut.

Designed by Goddard Littlefair, the hotel will offer 257 rooms, many with views over Grosvenor Square, as well as 51 suites.

The refurbishment, which is estimated to cost approximately £50 million, started in November 2017 and the hotel was closed entirely at the beginning of July 2018.

Hilton Senior Vice President (Development, EMEA) Patrick Fitzgibbon said: “LXR is designed to bring together the best of luxury in global destinations. 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, Mayfair will feature new culinary concepts headed by internationally-renowned chefs, an all-year round alfresco terrace, an exclusive cocktail bar and a large gymtech fitness suite.

The hotel will also house a 500 sq. m ballroom with a capacity for up to 700 guests. For smaller functions, the Waterloo and Manhattan Suites are suited to more intimate receptions of up to 100 guests, while the Kendal Suite lends itself perfectly to small groups of 25 guests or boardroom meetings. Martin Rinck, executive vice president and global head Luxury & Lifestyle Group, Hilton said: “LXR properties are truly best-in-class hotels, known for their distinctive character and unrivalled service. We are incredibly excited that The Biltmore, Mayfair will bring to life everything that the brand stands for by joining as the first LXR hotel in Europe.”

LXR is a collection of independent hotels. Last year, the collection welcomed its maiden hotel in Dubai at Habtoor Palace, a 234-guest room luxury hotel situated on Sheikh Zayed Road.
