London Hilton on Park Lane is a hotel which is situated on Park Lane, a road that borders Hyde Park and it is part of Mayfair, this is one of the hot spots in London. This hotel is perfectly situated for shopping around London’s top places, you are not far from Knightsbridge where you can find Harrods and also Oxford street is close too. London Hilton on Park Lane is the tallest building within Mayfair and you can have amazing 360 views of London, especially at the top floor restaurant and bar. It is a 5-minute walk from Hyde Park Corner tube station and a stone’s throw away from Hyde Park and Green Park. Green Park will lead you into Buckingham Palace which is about a 13-minute walk away.
The building understandably is huge for Mayfair, boasting, with 453 spacious guest rooms, including 56 suites. So when I walked in I was instantly hit by the multi colour carpet. For me the reception area is the heart and soul of any hotel, it is a clear statement about what the hotels message is. London Hilton on the Park Lane was intriguing, opulent and very modern. For those that stay make sure to have a look at the staircase behind the lift, you can have plenty of nice photo opportunities here.
I stayed in a deluxe room and mine was located on the 17th floor overlooking the city of London towards Knightsbridge. By day and night, it was lovely taking in this city, through the large window. I liked the seating area where you could just sit with a cup of tea and take in London. The mini bar was a tad tricky to find but it was nice that it was tucked away. I also liked how the wardrobe space was sufficient in space. The bed was cosy and once again nice to be sitting around taking in that view. For those on business, it was nice to have a trouser press. The TV with BT sports and on-demand movies was a handy added touch.
The bathroom was very clean, nice and modern. The exclusive products were nice and it was good to see the hotel had a proper hairdryer to use. I liked the wooden sink, it was unusual to see something different in a hotel bathroom.
At London Hilton on Park Lane, guests can choose from one of three restaurants which offer a range of elegant dining experiences. Dine on modern French haute cuisine and take in 360° views of London on the 28th-floor of Michelin – starred Galvin at Windows Restaurant and Bar. I did experience this restaurant and the views, food and service were all amazing. Make sure if you go to have a cocktail too at the bar and soak up those views.
For dining with a Tiki twist, Trader Vic’s is a tropical Polynesian-inspired escape and home to the Mai Tai cocktail. I experienced this as well and it was a very different, fun and quirky experience.
Podium Restaurant and Bar – Breakfast
The Podium bar and restaurant is also the area where breakfast was served. The breakfast room was huge and offered a quintessentially English experience. It is well presented, with a lot of food choices. I liked the separate coffee bar, and it was nice to have good coffee.
I am a lover of Asian food, so the Japanese section of soups was great to have as an option. The number of fresh juices available was a perfectly healthy start to my day. I liked also the selection of fresh fruits, nuts, figs and dates which I do not see often at breakfast in hotels. The amount of pastry choice was also impressive. Make sure you take time for breakfast, which opens at 7 am.
