The 404-room hotel completed a $150 million renovation[4] in November 2006 that updated the hotel, which opened in 1927 with King George V and Queen Mary in attendance.[5] The building also houses the May Fair Theatre, which opened in 1963.[6][7]

A blue plaque unveiled in 2005 on the building commemorates dance band leader Bert Ambrose, who performed regularly at the hotel.[8] In June 2019, the hotel joined the Radisson Collection brand of luxury hotels.[9]
