Two of London's highest hotel-profile openings for 2014 are now open for business.
Located in the heart of Mayfair, the art décor-inspired Beaumont features the 100-seat Colony Grill Room, American bar, private dining for 48, spa for residents-only and the Crouching Man, a habitable one-bedroom sculpture created by artist Antony Gormley.
The interior has been created by Richmond, working in conjunction with Jeremy King.
General manager is Paul Brackley, while the kitchen is overseen by executive chef Paul Bates and Colony Grill Room head chef, Lee Ward.
Starting rate is £395, including continental breakfast.
Meanwhile, located on the South Bank, the Mondrian incorporates the Sea Containers restaurants head by New York's Seamus Mullen working alongside executive chef Luke Rayment; Dandelyan, a cocktail bar overseen by Ryan Chetiyawardana; a spa with six treatment rooms and 56-seat screening room.
The hotel, which features a dramatic, handcrafted copper hull sweeping from the entrance through the lobby into restaurant, is the first Mondrian branded hotel outside the US and joins two other properties in London from Morgans, the Sanderson and St Martins Lane. Its interior has been created by Tom Dixon.
General manager of the hotel is Anne Golden, who is also regional vice-president of Morgans Hotel Group.
Starting rate at the Mondrian is £195 plus VAT.
