The Athenaeum Hotel & Residences (HotelSwaps)

The Athenaeum is a historic building with an interesting story not confined to hotels. It started as an extravagant private mansion called the Hope House in 1850, before it was converted into a private art gallery. The Hope House then became a gentlemen's club during the Victorian era before it was again transformed into an art-deco apartment building in the 1930's.

There is a fitness center and a spa that offers all kinds of treatments and packages. With Hyde Park, Green Park, and St. James's Park all within walking distance, guests wanting to take a stroll or go for a bike ride have plenty of options.

The Athenaeum Hotel & Residences in Mayfair, just opposite Green Park, is one of London’s only remaining family-run five-star hotels. An independent spirit is therefore present throughout every aspect of the hotel’s operations. It was recently fully renovated, reinventing itself as a casual luxury hotel with modern design elements and contemporary furnishings. The hotel's restaurant, The Galvin at the Athenaeum, is the brainchild of two brothers and Michelin-starred chefs, Chris and Jeff Galvin. The restaurant offers homegrown British produce in an effort to support local farmers and take a refreshing step away from classical French cuisine in favor of British classics. The Athenaeum's bar is known for its famous whiskey collection but also features signature cocktails that make it a destination in its own right.
