The upscale and affluent neighbourhood is known for its displays of luxury. Within its streets are elegant Georgian townhouses, high-end hotels, stylish restaurants, bespoke tailors on Savile Row and the depths of the very expensive Bond Street.
Meanwhile, consumers head to the ever-popular Burlington Arcade and Shepherd Market. Here they usually find a glorious cluster of independent boutiques and traditional pubs. However, those that like cool and modern art galleries usually walk towards the ones that line Cork Street where they may be able to find a piece to take home with them.
What does this say about Mayfair itself? That it caters to the high-end business and leisure traveller. Those that aim for a first-class experience always come here to bathe in the rich glow that emanates from the buildings and streets. Luxury restaurants fill the appetite and deplete the wallet, and boutique stores are always here to offer something special that adds to the high-end flavour.
It’s close proximity to Oxford Street, Regents Street, Leicester Square, Green Park and Hyde Park make it an unbeatable location for guests that want some of the best London attractions in short walking distance from their stylish serviced apartment. They can wake up and head out to the tailors on Saville Row to get that personal suit, do some more shopping on Oxford Street, eat lunch at one of the many expensive restaurants, spend the afternoon watching a play in the West End and then walk around Hyde Park in the evening before turning back into their serviced apartment.
It’s not surprising to find out that Mayfair has always been an area of absolute luxury. In fact, the whole area was originally part of the manor of Eia and remained largely rural until the early 18th century when developments started to happen that would make Mayfair what it is today.
For starters, it became well known for the annual "May Fair" that took place from the years 1686 to 1764 in Shepherd Market. Like any gathering that happened over a period of years, the fair itself grew unpopular. So much so that the Grosvenor family (who would become the heirs of the opulent Duke of Westminster baronage) acquired the land through marriage and developed it under the watchful eye of Thomas Barlow. These constructions and work would include parts that are still there today like Hanover Square, Berkeley Square and Grosvenor Square.
By the end of the classy 18th century, most of what is now Mayfair was built with upper-class housing. While some areas of London would lose their high status over years of decline, Mayfair has always been an area of prestige. As the British aristocracy lost its influence at the start of the 20th century, the area became more commercial as many of the opulent houses were converted into offices for business headquarters and various embassies around the world.
While Mayfair does retain a substantial vast amount of high-end properties, luxury shops and restaurants, and high-end hotels throughout Piccadilly and Park Lane, it has still managed to conform to the values of the modern world without losing its lush appeal. In fact, its status of exuberance and style has been commemorated on the London Monopoly board as being the most expensive square for property on the game.
While it’s certainly not a business hub in the same way that Canary Wharf is, Mayfair still packs a punch. High-end offices are the residences of private equity firms, law firms, accountants, charity institutions and more. But if anything, it’s the likes of the tailors and suitors that make it appealing to the business traveller. The corporate hot shots can be found here getting measured for the perfect suit that encapsulates their status. A Saville Row suit is a gateway card to the big meetings and being taken seriously in the biggest office. If a client walks into a meeting with a suit like that, then they mean business.
The residents of this area alone contribute 2.5 billion to the UK economy, which includes 2,000 millionaires. Again, while it may not be a financial stronghold, its retail and residents are what make the business life in Mayfair possible and make it a top spot for an office rental or an apartment that exudes the warmth and luxurious glow.
Our serviced apartments add their own mix to the business travel experience. Their fully equipped and lavishly furnished interiors are the ideal home to enter after a long day in the office. They guarantee all guests the utilities they require to live like a local and to work remotely if needs be. Their high-end attributes are what makes them so likeable, and having a fully equipped kitchen, free Wi-Fi and the possibility of concierge services and gym access more than complete the experience. With comfort and convenience taken care of, business travel has never been easier in Mayfair.
The Mayfair area is infamous for its high-end feel, and the apartments in the area more than complement that reputation. With the streets lined with luxury buildings and lavish designs, choosing somewhere to stay in one of London’s most wealthy and extravagant neighbourhoods is often quite difficult. But considering the size of the neighbourhood, the choice can be reduced substantially.
There are many options to think about; be it leisure or corporate apartments to studios, 1 bedroom, and 2 bedroom apartments - making sure that any group can be well catered for. The old streets offer plenty of comforts and can keep guests close to the likes of Bond Street, Green Park, Oxford Circus, and Hyde Park. Those that don’t want to be near such things can go deeper into the area and have a more residential feel as opposed to a busy atmosphere.
Overall, our extensive portfolio will more than accommodate for travellers looking to stay in Mayfair for the short and long term.

The weather in Mayfair is much like the rest of London, which is also like the rest of the UK; in short, it can be difficult to predict. The city of London is known for its cold winters (where temperatures fall below freezing), but also for its hot summers where temperatures can reach average highs of 24 degrees (or 35 degrees, like in 2019). But it’s fair to say that British summers are notoriously unpredictable, so wet-weather clothing is essential at any time of the year. The month of September is often a good time to visit as well, as the temperature is usually still warm, whilst being a little cooler than August in the evenings, making for a more comfortable stay.
So, overall, whether a guest is in Mayfair for business or leisure, the weather will hold many surprises for them.
