Built in 1920, the grand Art Deco-style Park Lane Hotel with a white-stone façade and red mansard roof is set on Piccadilly in the exclusive central London area of Mayfair, half a mile from Buckingham Palace. For dedicated shoppers, Harrods and Harvey Nichols are half a mile away in Knightsbridge; and Oxford Street is one mile away. Sightseers will find the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey both one and a half miles and St Paul's Cathedral three miles from the hotel. Green Park is the closest Underground train station and London Heathrow Airport is 15 miles from the hotel, an approximate driving time of 45 minutes. Please note: Pets are not permitted at this property.
A pied-à-terre for Bond Street shoppers and businesspeople, the hotel offers in-room spa and salon services and has its own hair salon. The 1,000-square-metre ballroom glitters with Art Deco mirrors and is decorated in silver and mauve hues. Classic British television programmes such as “Jeeves and Wooster” and “Brideshead Revisited” were filmed here. Situated at the heart of the hotel, the Palm Court serves morning coffee, evening cocktails, and afternoon tea with live harp music at weekends. With its vaulted stained-glass ceiling, plush sofas, and palm trees, it is one of the hotel's most notable Art Deco highlights. The Citrus Restaurant, with marbled floors and views over leafy Green Park, offers Mediterranean dishes such as Wild Mushroom and Herb Risotto; breakfast is served against a backdrop of delicately carved vines and wood panelling in Bracewells Restaurant. The Tchibo Coffee Shop, with a separate entrance to Piccadilly, offers coffee, tea, and snacks.
The 305 high-ceiling guestrooms laid out over 8 floors have views of Green Park or leafy Mayfair and boast original fireplaces. The understated decor complements the Art Deco features. All rooms have a separate sitting area and desk; beds feature 100-percent combed-cotton sheets and goose-feather and down pillows as standard. They are equipped with high-speed wireless Internet access, climate control and satellite television with pay movies and premium channels. The marble bathrooms come with complimentary bathrobes, slippers, toiletries, and hair dryers.
