Notes: From Wikipedia, construction on the Britannia Hotel, which faces Grosvenor Square in London, England, was completed in 1969. After acquisition by Inter-Continental Hotels, it became Britannia Inter-Continenal London in 1981.
After another acquisition in 1996, the Britannia became the Millennium Britannia Hotel and after 2000 renovations became the Millennium Hotel London Mayfair. More renovations were made in 2017-18 and the hotel became The Biltmore Mayfair. Click here for the hotel's current website (2021).
The hotel's Pine Bar was the site of the 2006 poisoning of Russian defector Alexander Litvinenko, who later died from the attack.
