Landmark
Park Lane is a major road in the City of Westminster, in Central London. It is part of the London Inner Ring Road and runs from Hyde Park Corner in the south to Marble Arch in the north. It separates Hyde Park to the west from Mayfair to the east. The road has a number of historically important properties and hotels and has been one of the most sought after streets in London, despite being a major traffic thoroughfare.The road, 0.7mi in length, was originally a simple country lane on the boundary of Hyde Park, separated by a brick wall. Aristocratic properties appeared during the late 18th century, including Breadalbene House, Somerset House and Londonderry House. The road grew in popularity during the 19th century after improvements to Hyde Park Corner and more affordable views of the park, which attracted the nouveau riche to the street and led to it becoming one of the most fashionable roads to live on in London. Notable residents included the 1st Duke of Westminster's residence at Grosvenor House, the Dukes of Somerset at Somerset House and the British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli at No. 93. Other historic properties include Dorchester House, Brook House and Dudley House. In the 20th century, Park Lane became well known for its luxury hotels, particularly The Dorchester, completed in 1931, which became closely associated with eminent writers and international film stars. Flats and shops began appearing on the road, including penthouse flats. Several buildings suffered damage during World War II, yet the road still attracted significant development, including the Park Lane Hotel and the London Hilton on Park Lane, and several sports car garages. A number of properties on the road today are owned by some of the wealthiest businessmen from the Middle East and Asia. Current residents include business mogul Mohamed Al-Fayed and former council leader Dame Shirley Porter.

  • 高級住宅與高檔飯店林立,加上寬廣的綠蔭分隔道,還有乾淨整潔的道路,一切一切都那麼似曾相識,這不就是台北市的仁愛路嗎?當然,這裡的地價房價恐怕又勝過仁愛路好幾倍了......  more »

  • Amazing service Very expensive Good range of dishes Dessert range is good Easy to locate Restaurant is dark Well decorated Very busy on a Friday night
  • Wonderfully Friendly staff, delicious breakfast and bang-up drinks made bedside, turn-down service everynight to set the mood for me and my lover, chauffeured us to and from local spots and even let me keep the nice umbrella when we checked out to leave because of the weather. We absolutely enjoyed our stay here. Pricey, yes, but worth the amazing service. And the bar has amazing drinks, too. Would love to come back.
  • It is ideally situated in central London opposite Hyde Park, inside is nice and clean with modern decor. Staff very pleasant and professional.
  • Very classy. Suitable for unforgettable occasions
  • 5 star, say no more, expensive as anything, only for the rich as only the rich with flashy cars get to park outside
