Rated 2 out of 5 by pa61 The room was not up to Sheraton Standards
The service and the staff were great. However, the air conditioner in the room was under sized and therefore the room never cooled properly. Also, the room was not of the quality or cleanliness that I would expect from Sheraton Hotels.

I am a platinum member of the SPG programme, the reception was dreadful I haven't been recognised as a member by an incompetent receptionist and I had the same treatment when I asked to talk to the manager. I was left 40 minutes waiting for my suite to be ready (with two small children) without being offered any alternative arrangement in the meantime.
At departure we went down for breakfast at 0630 and I asked the front desk to get my luggage down from the room, at 0700 when we were ready for departure the luggage wasn't down yet and when I asked te front desk the reply was "I am waiting for the concierge to get back to me". Finally after ten more minutes I got my suitcases brought down, while we were all ready to be driven to the airport. I have never met such a quantity of unprofessional employees at a Starwood hotel, it seems to me that the Park Lane is like a training ground for people coming from elsewhere, thus lowering the standards dramatically. I would favour the chance to talk to the hotel GM to express my disappointment with the service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Apple95 Wonderful hospitality.
This hotel offers warm hospitality.
Though, the facility needs tone updated. The water temperature in the shower for actuate so quickly from ice cold to extremely hot. Still the location is superb, ans staff member is kindly attentive.

The staff & Room service is terrific. Absolutely zero SPG recognition and the rooms allocated to us are always terrible old squeaky and not fresh at all. I'm an SPG Platinum and that's what you get at this hotel. It's simply pathetic!

Exceptional hotel in the centre of London, that has little extra special touch.
Scrumptious breakfast in a beautiful old dining room to start your day off in style and a great night's sleep in very comfortable, super king size beds.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Stevieb23 Very Disappointed
I have stayed at this hotel twice before and had great experiences.
This time I booked myself here for 3 nights, booked rooms for 4 other colleagues, and booked a meeting room in the hotel.
The meeting room was great.
The hotel room....
First off let me say that I have stayed over 400 nights in Starwood hotels and I have never asked to change rooms before.
I get amazing treatment and great rooms as a perk of being a platinum member.
Not here. Not this time. The first room I checked into was on the 3rd floor with a view of a brick wall 6 feet from the window. It smelled like mildew. They moved me to a tiny room on the second floor that hasn't seen a renovation since the Churchill era.
There is something in the air in the room that is making me constantly cough and sneeze.I do not have allergies, so that is alarming. I have had a horrible sleep
They tell me they are fully booked and can't do anything for me but send up a guy with an air freshener spray.
As a platinum guest, I should have got a better room to start with. As a hotel guest, I should have got more help than that.
On top of that, they have managed to alter my SPG profile with someone else's name now attached to it.
I will not be coming back, I will not be recommending this hotel.
I travel the world with Starwood hotels, and until today, I have never been disappointed.
And that is too bad, because my first two stays here were great.

Perfectly located at a walking distance from high-end shopping areas, Hyde and Green Parks and with easy access to public transport. Staff was friendly and ready to assist. The rooms should be looked at by an interior designer.

Excellent location, really great, that was the most important thing in my last trip. Room very small and basic, expected a little more for a Sheraton, but good for sleep with minimum comfort. Staff helpful. Would come back.

We have booked the Park Lane Hotel because its situation is perfect :near the typiccal touristic locations so you can visit all them by walk. It's tea ceremony is outstanding. We certainly come back when we are in London.

Yes, a splendid stay indeed. The Park Lane is a warm and hospitable hotel. All menbers of the staff are extremely kind and helpful. This year we especially liked to see the young female concierge receive her golden keys!

Old hotel but nice.
King size bedroom is ok, single bedroom defintely too small.
Great location, staff is friendly and very professional.
On my last stay there was no more coffee kettle in the room, that I found a minus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by czazza1 Last minute booking
We booked this hotel at the last minute for an overnight stay and it was a nice, pleasant stay. The only recommendation is for wi-fi to be made available in all the rooms as we were not able to access wi-fi in our room.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Felix43 This hotel needs modernisation
Hotel is in a great location however for the price the rooms do need a makeover - also the staff service is very slow and during the event we attended very unprofessional and could do with a great deal more training

Rated 3 out of 5 by haa7491 Good location and classic rich architecture
The hotel in general is good. But rooms need another look. house keeping staff needs training and supervision.
Resurants and food are excellent.
No SPG recognition. In general only giving discount at the resturant.

Rated 1 out of 5 by cookie49 The room was a closet!!!
We used our starwood points and what a waste!!!! The room had to be the smallest in the hotel. The air conditioner didn"t work and we had no view at all. I would think they would treat gold star wood guest better.

Location is spectacular at this property which could be one of Starwood's Crown Jewels in Europe but which is dusty and in tatters. A shadow of its former glory, someone could turn this into a premier destination.

The hotel met all of our needs. I read some of the poor reviews on line but frankly we had no issues.
Location was great. Service in the hotel was very good. When I come back to London, I will stay here again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ParkLaneLondonNeverAgain HARD TO BELIEVE
It was my first stay with a Starwood Hotel in London and hard to believe. Beside that the property including the rooms are old, the service lacks even more.
Very disappointing and depressing for GBP 299.00!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Traveller13 Great location
The hotel was very good, location excellent. The only criticism would be that in order to boil the kettle in the room you had to get down on your knees under the desk to plug it in! Otherwise first class.

everything about the hotel is fine except the dated accommodation for the price. If you use cash & points or just points, then it's great. Also, the hotel is in a very good location for sightseeing.
