The northern border of Mayfair is marked by Oxford Street which has a huge variety of shops and stores and is one of the highest densities of shops in Europe. Just on the opposite side of Hyde Park Corner is the large open area of Hyde Park and the upmarket area of Knightsbridge, perhaps best known for being home to the Harrods department Store. Nightlife is all around but but at its best just the other side of Regent Street which is just over half a mile to the east. The hotel is within a small triangular area at the end of Park Lane where no less than 7 5 star hotels can be found within 300 yards of this spot.

The Four Season Hotel underwent a £70 million pound refurbishment project starting in last quarter of 2008 and lasting for 2 years. This was the biggest renovation the hotel had undergone since it opened and involved being stripped right back to its internal structure. The project saw a new two-story extension to the North West elevation, on the ground level a black granite porte cochere , internal gardens, restoration of the double height Atrium, a grand staircase, a rooftop extension, a rooftop spa and new lift cores. Pierre-Yves Rochon was the interior designer and Reardon Smith handled the design development. Eric Parry Associates designed the rooftop spa. The end result was a drop in bedroom capacity from 219 to 192 and an increase in the number of suites from 29 to 45.
