Millennium Hotel London Mayfair is a 4-star luxury hotel in the Mayfair area of London, England. The hotel is currently closed due to renovation and will reopen in March 2019.

Location[edit]

The hotel is located at 44 Grosvenor Square in Mayfair, near the former Embassy of the United States, London.[1]

History[edit]

The building was designed by architect Richard Seifert and constructed as the Britannia Hotel by Grand Metropolitan Hotels from 1967-9.[2] It has a classical red brick facade facing Grosvenor Square, and a modern concrete, brick and glass facade facing the main entrance, on Adam's Row. The hotel was renamed the Britannia Inter-Continental London in 1981 when Grand Metropolitan acquired Inter-Continental Hotels. The hotel was acquired by Millennium & Copthorne Hotels on October 7, 1996 and renamed Millennium Britannia Hotel.[3] It was renovated in 2000 and again renamed Millennium Hotel London Mayfair.[4]

The hotel comprises 336 bedrooms, several corporate boardrooms and a ballroom.[1]

The hotel's Pine Bar was the site of the poisoning of Alexander Litvinenko in 2006.[5]
