  • No.22 The World's 50 Best Hotels 2023

Built in 1897 in London’s opulent Mayfair, The Connaught has long been a bastion of refined elegance amidst the English capital’s ever-expanding luxury hotel market. It’s all about discreet opulence across all the spaces in the hotel, masterminded by British designer Guy Oliver. Its 121 rooms follow suit, where traditional features are met with subtle contemporary touches. The hotel is also home to a vast array of stunning artwork. At almost every turn, you’ll run into pieces from Barbara Hepworth, Graham Sutherland, Damien Hirst, Tadao Ando or Louise Bourgeois, among many others. Alongside its refined accommodation, The Connaught’s crown jewels lay in its enviable lineup of bars and restaurants, many of which are destinations in their own right. Between exemplary French fare at Hélène Darroze’s eponymous three-star Michelin restaurant and Martinis at the hotel’s flagship cocktail spot – twice ranked The World’s Best Bar –, it’s certainly one of London’s best hotel F&B offerings. With its complete hospitality package, it's easy to see why The Connaught is the desired stay of many an artist, fashion designer and international superstar.
