酒店建于1973年，但皮卡迪利大街116号的传奇远不仅于此。说起建筑的历史，可以追溯到1850年，一开始它是国会议员Hope先生的私人宅邸，Hope先生艺术品位不凡，在自己的宅邸中收藏了大量大师级艺术品，据 说连大文豪狄更斯都羡慕不已。这里也一度跻身欧洲 最好的私人艺术收藏之家的行列。后来，Hope先生的后代将宅邸卖给了当时时尚年轻的雅典娜俱乐部。雅典娜俱乐部与同时期维多利亚时代的绅士俱乐部有所不同，上门的多是国会议员，“雅典娜”这个词源自希腊智慧女神雅 典娜，也常被翻译成“图书馆”，这里在当时就受到与文学科学和艺术有关的绅士的特别青睐。
后来随着俱乐部的解散，这座宅邸变成了豪华的装饰 艺术公寓。四十年后，雅典娜和相邻的维多利亚式联排别墅被英国娱乐集团The Rank收购。这家娱乐公司把公寓改建 成酒店，以便让到伦敦工作室拍片的大明星们可以在此下榻。从此以后，雅典娜酒店便与好莱坞明星们结下了不解 之缘。伊丽莎白・泰勒罗素・克洛乐队Take That史蒂 文・斯皮尔伯格都是这里的常客。
