Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane
“The Four Seasons London underwent a much needed top-to-bottom 2-year renovation and reopened in early 2011 featuring an opulent and elegant 1930s-inspired décor with a modern twist. It is now again one of the top places to stay in London at by both business travelers as well as tourists alike. Having recently stayed there, I completely understand why.”- Trusted Friend Jennifer Rubinstein

Business or pleasure. Set in the heart of London’s Mayfair District, the Four Seasons London at Park Lane is just steps from Hyde Park and Green Park, and within easy walking distance to London’s best shopping and tourist attractions, including Buckingham Palace.

Best time to go
Year-round. There is never a bad time to visit London.
The Four Seasons London at Park Lane looks very non-descriptive (and even boring) from the outside, but this is all forgotten once you enter the opulent black and red lobby.
Good to note
London has one of the best theater productions worldwide. Ask the hotel’s Albermale Theatre Desk to help you snag tickets for some of the best seats at one of the many shows. The hotel’s 10th Floor Lounge, complete with showers, refreshments and light meals, is an excellent spot to freshen up should you arrive before your room is ready or post check-out time before heading to your next destination.
There are plenty of options to choose from among the 193 rooms and suites, including 46 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom suites. Room range from a 276-square foot Superior Room with queen size bed to the 2,098-square foot Presidential Suite that can easily accommodate a family of four. Business travelers and couples should consider the Deluxe King Rooms with a view of the London Eye while families would enjoy the spacious Deluxe Suite with fireplace and separate dining area. For those looking to entertain, reserve the Terrace Suite on the 2nd floor with its pantry and beautifully landscaped outdoor terrace. All the rooms are furnished with a contemporary, warm design in either light colors with sycamore woods or dark colors with walnut panels so you may want to specify your preference when making a reservation. All baths feature double sinks no matter what room size.
Service & vibe
As expected from the Four Seasons Hotels group, the courteous service is flawless and the hotel staff will go out of its way to accommodate the guests requests no matter how small or large.

Spa & Grooming
The hotel’s spa, located on the top floor of the hotel, is open from 6:30 am to 10 pm and offers a number of facials and body treatments as well as manicure and pedicures. One of the spa’s signature treatments is the Four Hands Massage and definitely worth experiencing. Make sure to come early to take advantage of the spa’s steam room, sauna and plunge pool prior to your treatment or leave extra time to relax in one of the relation pods post treatment. Couples should book the private Sky Suite if they want to experience their spa treatments together.
