1 Hotels is set to bring its first sustainable, nature-driven destination to Europe next month. Located in London’s historic Mayfair neighborhood overlooking Green Park, the nine-story 1 Hotel Mayfair was designed by GA Group in collaboration with SH Hotels & Resorts’ in-house design team.
“We’ve reimagined the traditional luxury hotel experience for Mayfair by infusing our love for nature with effortless sophistication,” says Raul Leal, CEO of SH Hotels & Resorts. “With this opening, we celebrate our distinctive brand’s entry into Europe and the dynamic and culturally rich city of London.”
Shying away new construction, the property, which was built to BREEAM Excellent standards, utilizes 80 percent of an existing structure to minimize its negative environmental impact.
Exterior walls are covered with living greenery, converting hard façades into vertical landscapes. A parking lot has also been converted into a outdoor public space to further integrate guests with natural, as well as the local community.
1 Hotel Mayfair features 181 guestrooms, including 44 suites. At nearly 2,950 square feet, the double-height Green Park Penthouse Suite boasts the title of the largest one-bedroom suite in Mayfair. The lavish accommodation is also expandable—reaching 3,272 square feet as two bedrooms and 3,659 square feet at three bedrooms.
Ground-floor restaurant Dovetail is helmed by Michelin-starred chef Tom Sellers, while cocktail bar Dover Yard and coffee bar Neighbours Cafe offer two additional onsite food and beverage options.
1 Hotels also launched its flagship property, 1 Hotel Hanalei Bay, in Hawaii earlier this year.
