TASTE OF MAY­FAIR’S EL­E­GANCE

World Travel Magazine - - Just In - OWENS RACHEL

What does the world’s first ever phone call, Miss Marple and The Jun­gle Book have in com­mon? The Brown’s Ho­tel, of course, and her most il­lus­tri­ous guests Alexan­der Gra­ham Bell, Agatha Christie and Rud­yard Ki­pling. Nes­tled in May­fair, one of Lon­don’s cel­e­brated lo­cales, the glam­orous Brown’s Ho­tel show­cases so­phis­ti­ca­tion and gra­cious hos­pi­tal­ity, hall­marks of the ren­o­va­tion as are the spe­cial at­ten­tion paid to her orig­i­nal fea­tures and de­tails.

You might enjoy book­ing the Ki­pling Suite with its pri­vate chauf­feured Bent­ley Mul­sanne and a cham­pagne wel­come that finds you bask­ing in trop­i­cal colours set off by whim­si­cal paint­ings. Guests of the op­u­lent suites are treated to lit­er­ary lux­ury with a book tour that re­flects the predilec­tions of guests with a re­quest to sub­mit their favourite au­thors and lit­er­ary in­ter­ests be­fore their stay to cre­ate a per­son­alised lit­er­ary ad­ven­ture. Enjoy the hunt for rare ti­tles and first edi­tions of your lit­er­ary heroes.

Your tour cul­mi­nates in the ho­tel li­brary where afternoon tea is served as you dive into the pages At Ber­tram’s Ho­tel by Agatha Christie, a novel based on the ho­tel. The 88-room ho­tel of­fers 29 suites with the per­fect blend of con­tem­po­rary com­fort and tech­nol­ogy while stay­ing true to the ho­tel’s her­itage.
