Not to be confused for the incredibly chic London boutique that also bears its name, this Rocco Forte hotel blends its history with modern furnishings designed by Olga Polizzi, featuring suites that feel like an eclectic piece of New England in the heart of Mayfair. Think oatmeal and creams mixed with punches of bold color, loads of books and contemporary accessories and artwork. The hotel first opened its doors in 1837, but aside from the historic facade, lobby and restaurant architecture, the spaces here feel fresh and modern. The Kipling Suite, a recent renovation merging two of the hotel's largest rooms to create one larger penthouse that celebrates English author Rudyard Kipling, is one such venture highlighting the hotels inherent arts culture scene in an unexpected way. A hand-written letter from Kipling penned during one of his stays at the hotel hangs on one wall, and printed English wallpapers and textiles fill the suite. The Kipling Suite is only one of many Rocco Forte's moves to modernize Brown's; Art Weekends, where guests can tour galleries, auction houses museums and more via a walking tour, a newly renovated spa and product line as well as a Nourish program in partnership with chef and nutritionist Madeleine Shaw aimed at offering guests lighter and more nutrient-rich fare at Hix Mayfair, the Donovan Bar and in-room are also exciting new additions. 

  Brown's; 33 Albemarle St, Mayfair W1S 4BP, +44 020 7493 6020.
