WHERE London’s Mayfair district in central London.
THE VIBE Contemporary luxury.
THE ROOM Our Park Lane suite features great touches like walk-in closet, spacious bathroom with separate bathtub, walk-in shower and Peter Thomas Roth amenities. In the living room, bouquets of fresh hydrangea and calla lilies and an impressive view of Hyde Park and the London skyline make this hotel a complete immersion in London’s action.
DINNER For amazing 360 degree views of London (and a fun game of spotting the iconic landmarks – ‘look there’s Buckingham Palace’, ‘look there’s the Shard’, ‘look there’s the Walkie-Talkie’) and a dedicated and informative staff, Galvin at Windows, the Michelin-star restaurant and bar atop the London Hilton Park Lane does not disappoint. Begin with the cured Loch Fyne salmon with Dorset crab, fennel compote, and sharp lemon dressing followed by a pan fried fillet of Cornish John Dory, bull’s heart tomato, and sauce vierge. Finish with the stunning nougat parfait with caramelised bananas muscovado meringues and black pepper ice cream.
SPA Spa To You, the cozy hotel spa offers a range of treatments, and may just be the hotel’s best kept secret. We had one of our best facials ever (really!) courtesy of Oceane, our therapist.
DON’T MISS The custard filled almond croissants with a cup of cappuccino for breakfast at Podium Restaurant and bar.
