This was the fourth or fifth stay at the Intercontinental Park Lane. The staff are always very polite and welcoming, the bedrooms have always been spotlessly clean. the bed as with other Intercontinentals is super comfortable - like sleeping on a cloud, always a good nights sleep after a long journey.
The hotel is located in a superb position, close to shopping in Knightsbridge, Buckingham Palace and Hyde Park are over the road, and most of central London is within easy walking distance. Hyde Park tube and buses are right outside the front door.
I have eaten at Theo Randall maybe 4 or 5 times, the food and service are always excellent. This time we also ate at The Cookbook Cafe, also an excellent choice.
Mostly positives, but a few minor negatives, mainly in the detail. If you are an Intercontinental Ambassador (as I am), this location only uogrades one room category, many other locations upgrade to best available rooms.
As noted previously Ambassadors are supposed to be given a few perks:
Bottled water refreshed daily, but not here, you'll need to ask for it.
A bowl of fruit is supposed to be provided, as previously noted 3 apples dont make a bowl of fruit, but here they do.
Welcome gift - here consists of a packet of shortbread, at other locations this has been, a candleholder, a silk shoe bag, a bottle of wine (not a half bottle), a pack of custom greeting cards or a custom souvenir plate.
Not much to grumble about? Well the room rate on Trooping of the Colour weekend was £700+ per night!
This would have been a 5* review, but because of the minor negatives its 4*. However, I will return again, this is an excellent hotel.
