InterContinental London Park Lane

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 April 2012

I just came back from a trip to London. I have stayed at this hotel before. The location is excellent, the rooms are very nice, food is great. Everything you would expect from an Intercontinental. However, this time the people at the hotel made a difference. I had a family emergency and needed to extend my stay. The hotel was fully booked, however, they arranged for me to move to another close-by hotel, where i was expected since the reservation was made on my behalf. What really made the difference for me, was that the reservations team knew that it was a medical emergency and that i did not have any time to spend. in the most caring and thoughtful manner they arranged everything for me so i didn't have to worry about anything. Needless to say that i checked back in to the Intercontinental, after rooms were available cause they really made us feel at home. So thanks Lauren from reservations for being great on a difficult day for us. i also have only the best to say about everyone working there. Always eager to help, with a smile!

Stayed in this hotel for a business trip very recently. In many ways, the hotel fits the purpose of the stay - it is designed more for business than for leisure/family. In fact, throughout my 3 days there, I have not seen a single child! While that makes the hotel 'professional', it does lack a slight warmth and human touch.

Hotel is not big, which is good for business purpose. The rooms are also relatively small, in my views. However, it has everything you need - a good size table, a nice comfortable bed, bright bathroom with amenities, electric plugs in all the right places. Nothing to complain. Went up to the Club, and that wowed me :) Lovely view of vast expanse of Hyde Park, big and airy space at the Club with good facilities, cosy and intimate.

Breakfast at the Cafe was good, although the quality of food at the same place at dinner was not! There is a nice looking Italian restaurant at the lobby level too - did not try it, so can't comment on the quality.

I didn't get out of the hotel much so can't comment on the location. It is in a quiet part of a street, but taxi is easy to hail so no worries. Harrods is just a 5GBP ride, though I was told there is a station (Hyde Park Corner) next to the hotel.

In conclusion - a lovely hotel to stay in London although expensive. Would prefer it to be a bit more personal and warm, but it is definitely a good business hotel to stay in and to meet people.

Location is well

Stayed here during the London Marathon and the start of our honeymoon. The hotel is great and room was very comfortable. Bose sound system and big LCD tv. Only negative was the cost of breakfast which was £20 each

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in April 2012 as an anniversary gift to ourselves.

The plus points
1. The staff are really really nice, friendly without being over bearing
2. The location is superb just at Hyde Park on the corner of Park Lane and Picadilly
3. The breakfast. Definitely quality over quantity. The 'egg chef' was a real nice guy.
4. The feel and ambience of the whole place from the minute the doors are opened for you.

The negatives
1. I was not greeted at check-in as a Priority Club member. Not a huge deal but we did say when upgrading to get Lounge access via email that it was for a special occasion (our silver wedding anniversary). Some hotels may have thrown a gesture such as a bottle of wine or a fruit basket but Intercontinental did not even acknowledge the reason for our visit which was a little disappointing.
2. Access to the Club Lounge is way over priced. The view is one of the bes in London but for the price I expect more. I have travelled the world on business and stayed in many hotels including Intercon, and always the bar is open. Not so at Intercon Park Lane. At £95 + vat per night this was a huge disappointment - the beer, wine and champagne were not available before 5:30pm and prmptly removed at 7:30 on the nose. Who wants tea and coffee after an evening in London! It would have been nice to have had the option of a night cap!

Restaurant
there are two award winning restaurants on site. We only dined at Theo Randall's. For those not in the know Theo was head chef at the River Cafe and has made a good TV career for himself. Many celebrity restaurants are over-priced and frankly disappointing. Not so Theo Randall's. Yes it is expensive but hey it's Park Lane so yo expect it. But the quality of the food and the service is worth every penny. I have a gluten allergy but the staff could not have taken any better care of me and it ws clear they were prepared for my questons. The only thing that could have been bettered was if Theo was in the kitchen but even he needs a night off i guess!

I work for Hospitality industry so my expectations are very high. This hotel is wonderful. Excellent service from both Front Office and Concierge desk. Excellent location central to just about anything you may want to see in London. Overall an amazing exprience. We had breakfast on most days, drinks at the bar and my sister utilized laundry service. We also has car sevices arranged to and from the airport. i cant say enough about everyone being so willing and earger to help out.
