“Very nice.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

We booked a double room with an extra single bed to be added for our daughter who was staying with us.
All members of staff were very friendly and efficient. I left my gloves in reception on check in, only realising when we were ready to leave in the evening. This wasn't a problem as they were safely stored with the concierge. They were quickly returned. Many thanks.
We had a lovely room with a very comfortable king size bed. The put up bed was also comfortable, so we all slept soundly.
The bathroom was nice with a lovely selection of toiletries. The bath was soon filled with lots of lovely bubbles and the soap smelt divine. My husband and daughter loved the traditional style shower.
The usual selection of teas and coffees are provided. The mini bar is also full of lots of treats. Too expensive for me I'm afraid. (£6 for a can of Sprite is not something I'd pay even if I won the Lottery!)
We received apples and water as a gift from the Manager, which was unexpected. A very nice, & tasty, surprise.
The Bose Wave System was a nice extra. We played our music via the iphone, while getting ready to go out. (We liked the fact that it had a restricted noise level.) It was a pity the speaker in our neighbours bathroom didn't have this facility. They had it on full and we could hear their choice of TV programme all morning, even though we had our bathroom door closed and our own TV on!
This was the only fault we could find through out our stay. Noisy neighbours!
Excellent location with great staff.
Would we stay here again? Yes. If the price was right.

Recognition of Royal Ambassador status was good here. It was standard for London (no club lounge access, no going the extra mile, you get what you're entitled to and not one thing more) but the staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. I had a friend visit me for a meal with a cranky unruly 5 year old and the staff dealt with it perfectly.

Hotel is older, but it's updated really well. All in all a pleasant stay, for London. I would love if England would catch up with the rest of the world in terms of hotel hospitality, but what can you do?

I stayed here for one night in November. Here are my thoughts:

The front desk upon check in recognised my Plat Ambassador status and upgraded my room to a Deluxe, on the top floor, overlooking Green Park. Check in was pleasant and efficient.

My room was very cosy, completely clean and a pleasant place to spend time in. I had a balcony which I could step out onto to look at the views of London, including the House of Parliament. I would rate the room very highly. Although not large, it was immaculate and would recommend. Good amenities were present and correct in the room as one would expect of a 5 star hotel.

I took a few drinks in the hotel's Gin bar. I sampled the Prudence gin cocktail, which was made with gin, basil and citrus. Very good flavours, and properly prepared. The young man behind the bar had a good attitude and was friendly. I tried a Club sandwich at the bar. It was well executed, although not that special; fries were a little limp.

Overall, my impressions of this hotel are very good, and would hope to return. My only minor moan would be that I requested a copy of the Mail newspaper; it was not outside my door in the morning; I telephoned reception to request, and a copy of the Times was delivered. This was a little odd.

In summary, I was very pleased with my stay, and enjoyed the use of my room immensely. Top points included the spectacular view from my room on the top floor.

Have had two really enjoyable stays at the Intercon Park Lane, most recently for a 3 night stay during my honeymoon in late October 2013. The lobby, restaurants and rooms are fantastic (especially after 2011 renovations), and the staff have been helpful and cheery on both occasions. The Guest Relations team wrote us a lovely congratulatory card, was a really nice touch.

We were checked in early (well before midday), which was great after travelling long haul. Rooms are nicely appointed with great bathrooms and I think I had the best hotel sleep ever on their super comfortable beds. We used the in-house Elemis Spa this time, is excellent and reasonably priced for a high end spa.

The location is perfect for travellers - Hyde Park, Knightsbridge, Oxford St, Piccadilly, Buckingham Palace are all walking distance - but I noticed there are also a lot of business clients too.

Really great hotel. It's a higher end option, but I highly recommend it for business or holiday travellers.

I stayed here for a business trip, and for the money it cost, I really expected more of a wow factor. The rooms are nice, nothing more, and not especially spacious. The staff are extremely pleasant but if you want a drink in the bar you can expect to wait a while for it. It is very well located for central London but next time I stay in London, I'll try somewhere else. I wasn't blown away by any means.

Great location, friendly and helpful staff (especially, the door man his name I believe is Panny who greets us by name!) and breakfast was so delicious. Due to flight timing we requested early check-in which was provided to us in a welcoming way unlike other hotels. As a new Ambassador (you need to pay for membership) the internet was complimentary. Room size is reasonable in London standards. Will definitely comeback here.
