The Sheraton Park Lane Hotel is situated on Piccadilly just 200 metres from Park Lane's luxury shops and restaurants and close to Green Park, Hyde Park and the Ritz. Buckingham Palace is also close by, which gives a good idea of how exclusive the neighbourhood is, when the Queen lives practically next door.
The hotel's location is good for access to Theatreland, Covent Garden shops, Soho nightlife and Leicester Square's cinemas whilst Bond Street is only a few minutes easy walk. For an impressive choice of restaurants, Chinatown is close by and the iconic sights of Westminster, including the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and Big Ben clock tower are within 15 minutes walk, as is the River Thames, where you can take a speedboat tour of the city if you want to see a different side of London.
The Park Lane hotel offers 305 deluxe bedrooms and suites, which all feature the patented Sheraton 'Sweet Sleeper' bed, for a very comfy stay. Rooms are an elegant, considerately designed mix of original features such as fireplaces and Art Dec style marble bathrooms, and modern styling, with bold colours and all the technology the modern traveller requires. Rooms are available in Classic, Executive and Suite styles, and all include air conditioning, Sheraton Shine by Bliss toiletries, 32" HD plasma-screen TVs with over 40 channels and in-room movies, a large desk area, phone and voicemail service, wired and wireless high-speed internet access and more.
The Park Lane hotel is also the home of the world famous Palm Court Lounge, an area resplendent with Chinoiserie murals, antique furnishings and complete with a resident harpist, for a refined drink in relaxed surroundings and the Citrus Restaurant, which offers contemporary Mediterranean cuisine, with ultra-chic decor. The hotel also has a state of the art gym, with cardio and strength equipment and a choice of TV or music whilst you work out, and in-room beauty treatments are also available for a more relaxing way to power down and unwind. A extensive range of extra facilities are also available to cater for all guest needs, including a concierge, secretarial services, laundry, 24-hour room service, a currency exchange, business centre and much more, so whether you have a wrinkled shirt or need to send a fax, the friendly and attentive hotel staff can help you with any problems.
The Park Lane Hotel also has excellent transport links from its very central location. With Green Park tube station just a five-minute walk away. From Green Park you can directly access Heathrow Airport on the Piccadilly line and King's Cross St Pancras Station for travel on the Eurostar. The Victoria line also runs from the station, to Victoria Station, where you can catch the Gatwick Express Train to the airport in about 25 minutes. This makes the hotel perfect for those visiting from overseas, but the transport links also allow for further exploration of this fascinating city.
The Park Lane Hotel is one of London's pricier hotels, but for the stylish surroundings, convenient location and excellent service, you definitely get what you pay for and a little extra on top. If you can afford to, it is worth upgrading to an Executive room for a little extra luxury and stunning views over nearby Green Park. Rooms on the higher floors are a better choice, not just for views of the city, but to avoid the noise of the tube trains, which can sometimes be heard on the first floor.
