LONDON — Sheraton Hotels & Resorts has designated the Sheraton Grand London Park Lane, admitting it to the brand’s premier tier of hotels, it was announced July 25.
Joining 32 other Sheraton Grand properties worldwide, the Sheraton Grand London Park Lane will start a new chapter in its 90-year history this October, following a multi-million dollar renovation. Sheraton Grand is one of many initiatives currently underway for Sheraton 2020, a comprehensive plan designed to solidify Sheraton’s brand.
Having originally opened in 1927, the 303-room Sheraton Grand London Park Lane has undergone a transformation of its guestrooms and public spaces, combining modern touches with restoration to retain the property’s original Art Deco look.
The renovation added 43 Sheraton Club rooms and suites, which offer access to the Sheraton Club Lounge offering complimentary breakfast, drinks and snacks during the day, a taste of The Palm Court afternoon tea, a full bar and evening canapés. For business travellers, the Club Rooms and suites also include complimentary use of a private meeting room within the Sheraton Club Lounge, which can seat up to eight people.
In addition to the Club rooms, the hotel’s 21 suites have been reconfigured, with select rooms offering the option to connect adjoining suites. The hotel’s Grand Suite comprises an entrance lobby, master bedroom and bathroom, and living and dining areas. Rooms are interconnected with double-width, sliding pocket doors, enabling the entire suite to be opened into a single space.
On the food and beverage side, the hotel serves breakfast, afternoon tea, dinner and cocktails, as well as menu additions through Paired, the Sheraton brand’s food and beverage program offering small plates and bar snacks served alongside suggested premium wines and local craft beers.
The property also features a new Italian restaurant, Mercante, for hotel guests and visitors alike, as well as the Smith & Whistle bar, opened last year.
