The Biltmore, Mayfair Hotel is a 5-star luxury hotel in the Mayfair area of London, England, near the former Embassy of the United States, London. The hotel was formerly known as the Millennium Hotel London Mayfair. It is currently closed for renovations and will reopen in Spring 2019.
The building was designed by architect Richard Seifert and constructed as the Britannia Hotel by Grand Metropolitan Hotels from 1967-9. 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. It was renovated in 2000 and again renamed Millennium Hotel London Mayfair.
The hotel was renovated again beginning in November 2017, at a cost of £50m. It closed in July 2018, and will reopen in Spring 2019 as The Biltmore, Mayfair Hotel, operated by the LXR Hotels & Resorts luxury division of Hilton Hotels.
