The Park Lane Hotel is a 5 Star hotel on Piccadilly, London.

The hotel was built in the 1920s in the Grand Art Deco Style by Sir Bracewell Smith. The building is a fine example with a mansard roof and Portland stone facade. The building is Grade II listed.

It has 302 bedrooms on eight floors with the front overlooking Green Park towards Buckingham Palace.

The hotel was bought by ITT Sheraton in April 1996 for $70 million.[1] ITT Sheraton was itself bought by Starwood Hotels in 1998. The Park Lane Hotel continues to be operated by Starwood's Sheraton brand, though the hotel has never used the Sheraton name.

The hotel is featured in the films The End of the Affair, The Winds of War and The Golden Compass.
