I have stayed at this great little hotel from Jan 2006 to May 2007 for a total of 11 business trips (81 days in total) and it became a home away from home for me because of the people, the attitude, and the hotel.
People at the Parkes: Fantastic is all I can say. Friendly and helpful in every matter, and they make you feel like you are part of their family. Always providing great recommenations, and sound advice to get around London.
The hotel itself: Great small hotel, I stayed in a single, double, and a one bedroom suite. the single is great size for European standards, the beds are extremely comfortable. They do not have a restaurant, but they have a room service menu that you can order from a variety of great restaurnts in the vicinity.
Leave your shoes out at night, and they are cleaned and polished every day for you.
Rooms are nicely done and very clean. Great location to Harrods and other dept stores. walking distance to Hyde Park.
They do not have a business centre, but the staff will print , fax things for you. The internet works fine in the rooms, but I had colleagues tell me that they had trouble connecting.
Overall I would say its a great hotel for business travel, but an even great hotel to take that significant other one.
