Athenaeum Hotel & Apartments is a 5-star award-winning historic hotel that has celebrity guests line-up. Originally called Hope House, this architectural beauty attracts a slew of Hollywood stars such as Steven Spielberg, Elizabeth Taylor, Harrison Ford, and Kim Kardashian. This fabulous “home away from home” is on Piccadilly Road, across from Green Park and Queen Elizabeth Buckingham Palace. Although the area is easily accessible to taxi cabs and the Hyde Park Corner tube station, the hotel offers a complimentary bicycle and map for touring.
Henry Pelham Clinton, 6th Duke of Newcastle, built the Athenaeum in 1890, and the new owners converted it into a hotel/flat by 1930. Artwork adorns its walls, making this hotel a Mecca for unique visual elements, considering that the award-winning artist Martin Hubert designed the art Deco style interior. The top-end rooms, suites and apartments have quirky, yet classic designs that are visually appealing. There are en suite bathrooms laced with Italian marble and black granite and plenty of free toiletries. There’s also a personalised in-room massage service available when getting out of your Jacuzzi or after visiting the gym. The Athenaeum Spa specialises in Ayurvedic, REN Moroccan Rose Ritual and Elemis body treatments with facials, scrubs, massages and wraps. There’s also an area with a sauna, Hammam, hot tub and steam room.
The hotel has free WI-FI, Nespresso machines, hypoallergenic bedding, 32 to 43 inch LCD colour TVs with DVD players, 110v and 240v international plugs, Bose docking stations with Hi-Fi systems for your Apple products and smart phones, and minibars with complimentary snacks, alcohol and sodas.
The Rooftop Suite is spacious with a full kitchen, dining area, two and a half bathrooms, TV’s built into the walls, a video/code entry system, turndown service, and a private balcony with panoramic views of London's most iconic landmarks.
The hotel is 8-stories high with a vertical wall garden of exotic plants, flowers and tendrils crawling up one side. Additionally, the garden is lit up by a glowing green light, making it easy to recognise from afar at night, especially after visiting the bars, restaurants, and gaming tables at the Les Ambassadeurs, Playboy Club, Genting Crockfords and Colony Club casinos nearby. Also, the hotel’s concierge service will inform you about what’s playing in the West End theatres and help you set up a hired car valet service to transport you to and from these entertainment venues.
The Athenaeum is known for its award-winning Afternoon Tea that could be delivered to you by the 24-hour room service. Damask Restaurant and the Rooftop Lounge are on site, and both feature a 3-course British cuisine and fine dining. Additionally, the Whiskey Bar and Lounge features the biggest collection of whiskey in London with over 300 worldwide varieties to choose from. Some nearby attractions are the Shepherd Market Outdoor Shopping Mall, Hard Rock Cafe London, Apsley House English Heritage Art Collection Museum, Burger and Lobster, and many ethnic restaurants.
