We decided to stay at the Park Grand as a change from our normal "large chain" hotel and found a deal on Booking.com which made the price of the stay unbeatable.
We were visiting to see a show and have nearly always stayed in the Kensington and Chelsea area. The Park Grand is no more than a five minute walk from Earls Court Underground station with its excellent links to Central London and beyond.
A change is as good as a rest they say and what a change! Right from the moment the main doors of the hotel were opened for us by the staff the experience just got better and better! We were upgraded, at check in, to a "Club" room and, although the room was a little small, the facilities were excellent.
A well stocked mini bar, microwave, safe and ironing board were all standard fittings in the room and the bed, which was incredibly comfortable, and bathroom were luxurious. Plenty of toiletries and a large flat screen TV complimented the room. Retiring to the room after the show gave us a wonderful night's sleep and, although initially I thought there may be a problem with noise from the hotel corridor, this proved to be unfounded. My only negative comment would be that I found it impossible to control the room temperature by using the controls in the room! It was a little on the warm side but it was no real problem as we had opening windows.
Breakfast the following morning was very satisfying. A buffet style full English, or a continental style if you're less of a glutton than me, with attentive table service set us up well for the day.
The staff at the Park Grand were very, very good right from check in until our departure and the hotel appeared spotlessly clean.
My only regret was that we only stayed the one night! It was certainly the best stay I've EVER had in a London hotel and I will certainly be checking their offers again next time I need to book a stay.
