Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane reopened in January 2011, following an extensive refurbishment.
What’s it like?
Engulfed by lush greenery, this exquisite property aesthetically blends architectural elements from the 1930s into a contemporary frame. The thing that impressed me the most was the warm homelike feel the ambience emitted, which is crucial for road warriors like me.
Where is it?
Located in the heart of Mayfair, this Four Seasons Hotel is close to Hyde Park and Knightsbridge. During evenings I would stroll to one of the parks nearby to unwind from a long day of meetings.
I stayed in the Westminster suite that opened to spectacular city views. Alike the Four Seasons accommodations worldwide, this one too was minimalistic yet modern — just the way I like. The detailing of the walnut veneer panels and sienna walls is worth mentioning. The 196-key hotel offers 149 guestrooms and 47 suites. Their speciality suites are spread across categories such as Terrace suite, Garden suite, Hyde Park suite and the Presidential suite among others.
Food and drink
Amaranto Restaurant is undoubtedly one of my top recommendations in London for fine Italian dining. My favourite here was Scottish blue lobster that I enjoyed with a glass of red wine. For afternoon tea you can head to Amaranto Lounge that’s wrapped in Mayfair’s tradition and opulence. However, what caught my fancy during the stay was the Amaranto Bar. Adorning a striking red interior, this bar is known for its negroni trolley experience that tweaks the iconic cocktail into something experimental.
The meeting facilities at Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane are spread across 796 sqm space. It is ideal for big gatherings. The lounge on the tenth floor can be utilised for private cocktails and small events.
indulge in a wellness therapy whilst taking in the sweeping sight of Hyde Park from the glass-walled rooftop spa. Services at the hotel range from speciality massages to organic body treatments and facials available in great packages.
Verdict: A Mayfair address that should be on every business traveller’s list of top accommodations in the UK.
Price Upwards of £856/ ₹79,000
