We just sent four nights at this Startwood property. Best thing: the location next to Hyde Park within easy walking distance of Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace and inexpensive cab or tube rides to most other tourist sites and businesses in central London. The hotel is close to the Green Park tube stop which means a straight shot from Heathrow Airport without changing trains which saves a lot of money over either a taxi or express train to Paddington station.
Second best quality of property: beautiful public areas -- make sure you have drinks or dessert in the main bar\lounge area with it's over-stuffed couches and chairs, marble columns and deep wood paneling. The afternoon tea is superb as well.
The one down side are the rooms which, frankly, have cheap furniture and not much character. They just generally do not live up to the public areas though they were clean and reasonably quiet even on the 2nd floor where we stayed.
As just about always with Starwood properties, the staff were attentive, friendly and helpful. The head concierge, Stuart, was especially helpful on several occasions -- both knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile. However, the other concierge staff did make mistakes -- not telling us that the big flea market on Nottinghill was on SATURDAY and not SUNDAY and not knowing anything at all about the Jane Austen home and museum in Chawton.

- The Sheraton Park Lane Hotel is centrally located near Buckingham Palace and stroll over to the boutiques of Bond Street, Knightsbridge, and London's West End theatres. As evening falls enjoy a conversation over a world famous English afternoon tea at the Palm Court, or experience a Mayfair local Smith & Whistle. From 1st September 2014, The Park Lane Hotel will be undergoing a transformation. We are very excited to be making a major investment in the hotel which will result in completely renovated guest rooms and public areas. During this period, the hotel will remain open and will continue to offer all of its current services. ... more less
