The Grosvenor House was opened in 1928 (to serve the first transatlantic cruise passengers) on the same site as the original Grosvenor House (demolished in 1927) which was renowned for its 18th century splendour. The old Grosvenor house was built in 1730 and bought by the Grosvenor family in 1806. Until that time it had been the residence for different members of the aristocracy and for for much of the time it was also a Royal residence. Its original address was 33 Upper Grosvenor Street although it did share the frontage along Park Lane and it was notable as being a detached property at that time. In 1916 it was handed over to the government to take control of by the Duke of Westminster.
In 1993 the hotel laid claim to London's first one million pound hotel bill paid by the Qatrai Royal family.
In May 2010 the JW Steakhouse restaurant replaced the former Bord'eaux restaurant.
