If there were a 10 Star hotel, The Parkes would qualify
First of all look at the review ratings of tripadvisor, it doesnt get any better, its amazing that this hotel can make even the most negative people happy, I do not see one bad review on this site for the parkes, that says alot, because even the satisfied people will look for something to complain about.
Let me say that this Hotel, and the service is like it used to be, everybody wanting to help you, and being there for you if you do need it. They insisted they would go to Mc Donalds for me, so they did, they insisted they would get us a raincoat, and umbrella.
They talked with our touristy questions forever, and really had a friendship with all the staff at the Parkes hotel. The service is almost too good to be true till we stayed there for last week. I normally dont write reviews, but just had to for this excellent hotel. Its not like a Marriot over by the London Eye, where you have lots of people.
This hotel is in a expensive neighborhood near Harrods, and all the resteraunts here are wonderful, you are further away from the tourists and all the people here on this street. The subway is real close to walk too. I have attached images of our room, remember that this is just a standard double, and it was absolutely the most gorgeaus room I ever had.
This was for our honeymoon stay, and all the staff was very kind to us, they didnt want us to go.
The bathroom had a heated marble floor, wow it felt so good, I looked forward to using the bathroom and the huge shower head, all the shampoos and lotion were big large colorful bottles of real good stuff, you can tell good stuff because it smells good and works great. This room had more alcohol that I have ever seen, even though we dont drink, there were lots of candy and soft drink goodies for us in the stocked mini bar. Plent of room to walk around, The Parkes hotel is not one of those hotels that you hear are small rooms, look at my image of our room, it was huge with seperate sitting area, the bed was the best part, a huge cal king with the softest of linen.
This hotel has real maids and butlers, they are not just hotel maids. They do it all for you, they speak great english too. Most of the staff are foreign from delightful countries such as Italy and England.
The only reason it cant be a 5 star is because they dont have a resteraunt, but thats better because they in room menu shows about 10 different resteraunts that they can go to for you.
This hotel and the staff were amazing, we would recommend this over any hotel in London, the service is way beyond 5 star here, I cant see any other hotel paying so much attention to their guests then the Pakes.
Please, If you are looking to stay in London, stay here, you will love it like we did,
Expect about $300USD a night, about 145GBP.
You can email me if you want more info, We went to alot of great resteraunts near by that I can recommend too.
