The location of Brown's Hotel, on a peaceful 18th-century London street in the heart of Mayfair is unrivalled. The hotel is just minutes from the elegant designer stores of Bond Street, the art galleries of Cork Street and St James's, the vibrant theatres of the West End and the calm, open spaces of Green Park, not to mention the City and Knightsbridge, which are both a short taxi ride away.
More importantly, the Brown's Hotel is playing a central role in the emergence of Mayfair as a hip part of London. Further along Albemarle Street, creative director Jade Jagger has injected youth and glamour into crown jewellers Garrard, while its sister Asprey (which is just around the corner in New Bond Street) has recently reopened to great acclaim. In addition, two of London's newest and most high-profile restaurants, Sketch and The Wolseley, are within walking distance of the hotel.
However, you will still find old favourites close at hand. Just a minute's stroll from Brown's is Piccadilly, where you'll find the Royal Academy of Arts and the internationally famous food emporium Fortnum & Mason, together with the exclusive shops of the charming Burlington Arcade. The world-famous galleries of St James's are to be found just south of Piccadilly.
Head west along Piccadilly and if you wander south through the lush expanse of Green Park, you will reach Buckingham Palace. A little further to the west is Hyde Park and the Serpentine Lake, plus the famous shopping area of Knightsbridge. Here, you will find Harvey Nichols and a feast of excellent, top-quality shops including, of course, the inimitable Harrods.
Eastwards along Piccadilly is vibrant Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square, the heart of London's theatreland, and beyond, to the north, Soho and Chinatown. A short walk further on brings you to Covent Garden with its opera house, restaurants and covered market.
For those staying at Brown's on business, the hotel is just a taxi ride away from the City and 20 minutes on the new Jubilee underground line to Canary Wharf.
