The May Fair Hotel, a London Icon, Joins Radisson Collection
- The launch coincides with Radisson Collection’s first anniversary since its introduction to the Radisson Hotel Group brand architecture
- Edwardian Hotels London and Radisson Hotel Group are also announcing their intention for a 10 year extension to their strategic partnership
Radisson Hotel Group, one of the largest and most dynamic hotel groups in the world, is proud to announce that The May Fair Hotel – an iconic London property – has become the first in England to join the group’s collection of its most exceptional hotels.
The May Fair Hotel has become the latest addition to Radisson Collection, the group’s compilation of premium lifestyle properties, offering a high end stay in one of London’s most desirable districts. The hotel joins at the ideal time, as the launch coincides with Radisson Collection’s first anniversary since its introduction to the Radisson Hotel Group brand architecture.
The hotel quickly became a playground for London’s high society following a tour of inspection by King George V and Queen Mary in the Roaring 20s. Later it was owned by Hollywood impresarios, the Danziger brothers, when the hotel then took a larger-than-life legacy to new heights. Today, while its eminent spaces and glimmering Baccarat chandeliers remain, the hotel has transformed into a contemporary boutique getaway – known for its timeless elegance and charm.
The announcement coincides with parties finalizing the documentation on a 10 year extension to the partnership agreement between Radisson Hotel Group and Edwardian Hotels London, who own and operate The May Fair Hotel and 11 Radisson Blu Edwardian properties, now taking Edwardian Hotels London’s Master Franchise through to 2063.
Federico J. González-Tejera, President & CEO of Radisson Hospitality AB and Chairman of the Radisson Hotel Group Global Steering Committee, said: “We are immensely proud to welcome an iconic hotel like The May Fair Hotel into the Radisson Collection family and we are thrilled to have an in-principle agreement on a further extension of our strategic partnership with Edwardian Hotels London for an additional 10 years taking us through to 2063. From its unbeatable location to its culinary flair and luxurious wellness facilities, everything about The May Fair Hotel is set up to deliver an exceptional guest experience. We created Radisson Collection with the ambition to bring our guests a unique global collection of hotels that offer an exceptional experience of effortless, contemporary living - while making sure each property reflects the individual character of its location. In this respect, The May Fair Hotel could not be a better fit.”
Jasminder Singh OBE, Chairman and CEO of Edwardian Hotels London, said: “I am delighted that The May Fair Hotel has been recognised as London’s first hotel in the Radisson Collection and we look forward to the next phase of our long-standing strategic partnership with Radisson Hotel Group. This is testament to our unwavering commitment to guest service and is recognition of The May Fair Hotel’s preeminent position in the UK’s competitive luxury hotel market.”
The May Fair Hotel has one of the largest and most diverse selections of guestroom, with 37 luxury suites and more than 400 rooms. Guests have access to the serene May Fair Spa & Gym, as well as 11 state-of-the art meeting and event spaces to accommodate business travelers. The hotel also boasts an impressive food and beverage offering, with May Fair Kitchen showcasing the best of Spanish and Italian small plates, the award-winning May Fair Bar offering a phenomenal cocktail list, and the sleek May Fair Terrace providing a more intimate experience.
Located in the heart of London’s cultural scene, The May Fair Hotel is perfectly located in a gracious haven near to a wealth of elegant stores, designer boutiques and renowned galleries. For over a decade it has been the official partner of London Fashion Week and the BFI Film Festival – as well as partnering with the Victoria & Albert Museum to offer a bespoke hotel package and cocktails dedicated to Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams Exhibition.
The longstanding relationship between Radisson Hotel Group and Edwardian Hotels London has strengthened under the new ownership by Jin Jiang International Holdings Co., Ltd. The collaboration has enabled Edwardian Hotels London to further promote its brand and portfolio of properties internationally.
