Chesterfield Mayfair Hotel Review

Deep in the heart of Mayfair, the former town house of the Earl of Chesterfield welcomes guests in wood-and-leather public rooms that match the dark-wood furnishings in the bedrooms—small, but like fashion magazine spreads, with bold designer wallpaper or tones of fawn and gray. There are bargains to be had if you book online in advance, and the service is excellent. One neat little detail: the honey at breakfast comes from the hotel's own hives—on the roof!

    Chesterfield Mayfair Review

    This hotel was a huge disappointment. First off, the rooms were the size of a matchbox. You have to hold your breath to pass between the beds and the dresser. Secondly, I didn't find the staff all the helpful as everyone says they are. We had a keyboard in our room that was supposed to allow you access to the internet through your television. It didn't work. The bellhop told me that batteries in it were dead and then never replaced them. Each time I wanted to check my email I had to go down to the basement to use the computers in the "business area". But lastly, and this I really resent, the hotel staff automatically adds a 1 pound donation to a local charity to your bill. They don't tell you they are going to do this, they just do it. While I am sure the charity is worthwhile, I still would like to be the one to decide whether or not I am going to donate. I don't need the hotel staff to make that decision for me. When you question it at check out, the very rude front desk staff do their VERY best to embarrass you into keeping it on the statement. That's a disgrace as far as I'm concerned. Definitely will not stay here again.
