January 9, 2019 3:12pm
LONDON and MCLEAN, Va. - The Biltmore, Mayfair is set to open as LXR Hotels & Resorts' first UK property, following an agreement between Hilton (NYSE: HLT) and Millennium & Copthorne Hotels plc (LSE: MLC). The luxury hotel, situated in a super prime location in the heart of Mayfair on Grosvenor Square, will open for business in Spring 2019, marking the new brand’s European debut.
The hotel, which will be known as The Biltmore, Mayfair – LXR Hotels & Resorts, has undergone a multimillion-pound redevelopment following its closure in early July 2018. The hotel will offer 257 luxuriously appointed guest rooms, many with views over Grosvenor Square, as well as 51 highly curated and beautifully designed suites, which will reflect the property’s origin as a sophisticated and elegant London private residence.
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 distinguished by an unrivalled commitment to personalised attention and luxurious yet locally immersive experiences for guests. Last year, the collection welcomed its maiden hotel in Dubai at Habtoor Palace, a 234-guest room luxury hotel situated on Sheikh Zayed Road.
Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, Development, EMEA, Hilton, 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.”
Mr Tan Kian Seng, Interim Group Chief Executive Officer of Millennium & Copthorne Hotels plc, commented: “We are excited to introduce our flagship hotel, The Biltmore, Mayfair, in conjunction with Hilton’s new luxury collection – LXR Hotels & Resorts. This hotel located on the prestigious Grosvenor Square in Mayfair, has undergone a complete refurbishment. With its prime location, bespoke products, and quintessential services under LXR, The Biltmore, Mayfair will be fit for royalty, well-travelled guests from around the world and senior corporate executives. We look forward to welcoming our first customers in the coming spring.”
