Right Venues, together with Maybourne Hotel Group, co-hosted a showcase of Maybourne Hotel Group’s iconic properties at Harvey Nichols, Manchester on Thursday 23rd July.
The event was attended by a variety of Conference, Event and Meeting organisers from across the North West.
It was Maybourne’s first event of this type outside London and was an excellent opportunity for the group to bring their renowned properties to a clientele outside the Central London area. Maybourne has three iconic properties in sought after locations in Central London.
Claridges, the fabulous art deco property, situated in the heart of Mayfair has 230 rooms and 67 suites, 9 meeting and conference rooms catering from 4 to 450 guests, including the iconic Claridges Ballroom. The property has an envious selection of bars and restaurants, including Gordon Ramsey’s, the Fumoir and the Reading Room serving the renowned Afternoon Tea. The hotel has recently had a refurbishment, with contributions from famous designers including Diane von Furstenberg, further celebrating the inimitable style that is Claridges.
The Connaught, Maybourne’s exclusive property in Mayfair, close to Hyde Park has 33 suites and 121 rooms, 6 meeting and conference rooms catering from 4 to 200 guests. With a variety of bars and restaurants including, the Coburg Bar, the Connaught Bar and Helene Darroze at the Connaught, the renowned French Chef with two Michelin stars. The more contemporary of the three properties, the Connaught is a perfect blend of state-of-the art technology, modern elegance and sumptuous décor.
The Berkeley, is more traditional in décor. Situated in the heart of Knightsbridge, The Berkeley has 214 rooms and 65 suites, 6 meeting and conference rooms catering from 10 to 450 guests, including The Ballroom which accommodates 400, ideal for both private and corporate functions. The Berkeley offers 4 restaurants and bars, including Marcus Wareing at The Berkeley and the famous Blue Bar. The jewel in its crown is the rooftop pool, more than a rarity in the heart of London.
“Claridges, The Connaught and The Berkeley are three exceptional properties. It was a privilege to collaborate with Maybourne in showcasing the properties to clients outside of London. The attendance of Corrado Bogni Head Concierge at The Connaught was particularly well received and added a special touch to the event. Maybourne’s exclusive properties form part of a growing portfolio of premium properties that are increasingly being requested by our clients,” says Liz Ackland, Managing Director of Right Venues.
