Beautiful historic hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Perfect location, excellent place to stay!!from OFreasier
NOT a Five Star Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
It just didn't feel clean. I have stayed at another hotel in London that claimed to be five stars (the Howard--Swissotel), and that hotel was MUCH cleaner and newer. It was a bit more expensive but worth it.
The only good thing about the Sheraton Park Lane is the location. It is very close to the tube (I would say three blocks). It is also close to a grocery store and a Starbucks. The location is very safe. Overall, I wouldn't recommend the place unless they renovate all the rooms.

OK Hotel not worth Rack Ratefrom sdcarver
Not worth itfrom A TripAdvisor Member
To start - the room was a large suit consisting of two rooms - both were very worn and smelled stale. I mean - it was ok for a 3 star or so, but that's about it. The AC was basically a very light fan that only worked in one room - I know other rooms didn't have AC or it just didn't work at all. I will give very high marks to the bathroom though - which was huge, modern and worked great.
The location is Great ! in very safe place, very close to tube (like 3 blocks) and we just walked to a lot of shopping and sights.
The Staff is really bad - very unhelpful. I see a lot of other reviews here that say the same thing - it was very true. The conceirge was almost funny in how unhelpful he was - no effort or care - and other staff members were not much better. The common areas are very stately and very nice however - I just had very bad experiences with the staff in these areas.
I guess I would say that if you are actually paying full rates - it's just not worth it - you can get nicer places with nicer staff. If you are using points or a very discounted rate - it may be worth the chance. However I know I won't use my money or points here again.
Great Stay in early Septemberfrom kg92253
The room came with an honor bar but i called down and asked them if I could use it for personal items and they sent housekeeping up and cleaned it out. I was able to use it all week that waywhich is nice with the little market down the street. it was an excellent location across from the park and close to the Green Park tube. Housekeeping was great and the room condition was quite acceptable. I would stay here again and recommend this hotel to others.
Top Local Tips for London
A night to remember The Grill Room at the Dorchester is spectacular for an all-out, money-is-no object celevbration evening. During dinner, ask them to hold a spot for you on the Promonade. This lobby bar/ peacock alley is a n experience not to be missed
Dont go broke eating in London Near Victoria station, there is a small place to get a pastie. It says "CORNISH ..?" The sign is red with gold lettering. They are fabulous and not unlike a portable pot pie in US. Better though and delicious. I would be fat as a cow if I lived in London. Also, out the back entrance of the Park Lane Sheraton, walk up the back alley, turn right...walk down a street which winds around to the right. Take another right and there is a very small place with pasta dishes etc in the window. Its where EVERYONE!!!!!!! goes. Cook is Portuguese with a easy smile. Get a espresso machiatto....I am the pickiest coffee person and this is the place for espresso. You can breakfast or lunch. Limo drivers for the world's wealthiest industrialists go here , along with the uptight Embassy types Brits donning their pin stripes. Warning...they will trip over you to get a good view of themselves in the mirror. Affordable food which is rare in London.
Personal Security I found it amazing that a Sheraton in the center of London would offer a stifling hot room with a window directly off a flat roof that did not lock! I left the window open over night but I certainly woudn't recommend this hotel to women traveling alone or anyone concerned for their personal security. A very low standard for the price and location.
