Argent sign contract for Westbury Hotel in Mayfair


Argent have signed a 3 year building services maintenance contract for the Westbury Hotel in Mayfair which includes their steam room and sauna.

During the Olympics, the Westbury will be entertaining high profile VIP guests under strict security, which requires all our engineers to be CRB checked. Many of our public sector contracts require high security checks and we were happy to be able to comply with this requirement.

The 5 star Westbury Hotel in Mayfair, London was opened in 1955 by the Polo playing Phipps family.

In 1999, Cola Holdings acquired The Westbury Mayfair and set in motion some radical changes, such as a multi-million pound refurbishment to all of its 246 bedrooms & suites. Later in 2009, the group launched Washington House, a brand new state-of-the-art 800 square meter venue, which is ideal for corporate functions and glamourous lifestyle events.

The Westbury has played host to a wide range of VIP guests, such as TRH Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, Duchess of York, HH Prince Dimitri of Russia, HH Princess Olga, Countess Rosslyn, President Mikhail Gorbachev, Carla Bruni Sarkozy, and repeat guests such as Andreas and Vivienne Westwood, Gillian Anderson, Anthony Head, Martha Fiennes, Bob Geldof, Nicky Haslam, Brian Ferry, Martina Navratilova, Brian Friedman, pop acts Girls Aloud, Pixie Lott and JLS.

The Westbury has also staged the fashion shows of Anna Roza, Jean Paul Gaultier and has hosted The Old Vics theatrical phenomenon The Twenty Four Hour Plays Celebrity Gala, as well as prime-time TV shows.

Since 1955 the hotel has expanded tremendously. The Westbury now offers 246 bedrooms, of which 20 are suites where guests can be pampered with special amenities and exceptional service. The Westbury Hotel also boasts the charismatic, charming and opulent Polo Bar, which was voted Best Hotel Bar of the Year in 2010.
