the LH comment:
It makes a refreshing change to comment about accommodation thats near perfect !
47 Park Hotel, run by the Marriott chain of hotels and classified as a "Grand Residence", offers a very well-appointed place to stay with a high-level of service and one of the most convenient and uber upmarket locations in all London. Guests enjoy the discrete nature of the apartments and the personally tailored service, but this does come at a high price. However, if you want to splash out for a romantic break or a special trip, or if you are visiting on business, these will be ideal. Why not pop around the corner to One Park Lane and pick up a new Mclaren MP4-12C ?
