Sheraton Grand London Park Lane opened its doors to the guests during the glamour of 1920s and has since been the epitome of Mayfair’s grandeur.
What’s it like?
This stunning hotel is one of London’s finest Art Deco-inspired architectures. As soon as I entered the hotel, I was teleported to the bygone era of London, steeped in sophistication and magnificence. The property’s ballroom is classified as a grade II listed (particularly important buildings or structure of more than special interest) building.
Where is it?
Located in the heart of Mayfair, the hotel overlooks Green Park and is close to historic landmarks such as Buckingham Palace.
I stayed in a Grand Park View suite that is bathed in fine luxury and old-world charm, highlighting the hotel’s rich heritage. Being an admirer of subtlety, I was completely in awe of the earthy tones and chic furnishing — the meticulousness with which the entire suite has been designed is worth mentioning. Post my hectic day packed with meetings, I spent some time gazing at beauty of Green Park whilst enjoying a cup of freshly brewed espresso from the Nespresso machine in my suite. Guests staying here can access to the Club Lounge. The Sheraton Grand London Park Lane has around 305 guestrooms spread across categories such as Deluxe, Superior, Sheraton Club rooms; and Art Deco, Park View, Grand Park View and Grand suites.
Food and Drink
Some of the popular Park Lane F&B outlets can be found here. I enjoyed a lavish Italian meal at Mercante, which is a good spot for networking. The food was well-grounded in flavours and suited my palate well. One can also relax at Caffe Musetti with freshly baked pastries, salads, sandwiches and coffee. My absolute favourite was Art Deco themed The Palm Court comprising marble floor, tapestries and a regal ceiling design. This restaurant is widely known for its traditional afternoon teas. There is also Smith & Whistle, a retro style decorated bar where you can enjoy a variety of cocktails and martinis.
Sheraton Grand London Park Lane’s meeting venues make it an ideal MICE pick. The largest event space is The Ballroom which can seat up to 650 guests for dinner. Then there is Tudor Rose Room, ideal for small corporate settings; and The Oak Room, inspired by the 13th century English Inn for an intimate family gathering.
As a wellness enthusiast, I would run to the 24-hour fitness centre at the hotel for a workout in the evenings.
Verdict: The hotel aesthetically blends its rich heritage with modern elements.
