The London Hilton on Park Lane Hotel is a hotel situated on Park Lane, overlooking Hyde Park in the exclusive Mayfair district of London. It is 101 metres (331 ft) tall, has 28 storeys and 453 rooms including 56 suites. It was completed in 1963 and was designed by William B. Tabler Architects. It is a concrete framed building, and it is regarded by some[who?] as an insensitive intrusion on the park.
Queen Elizabeth II, whose garden in Buckingham Palace is overlooked by the hotel, opposed its construction and has made a point of never attending a function staged in the hotel. Regardless, her sister and other members of the Royal Family have visited the property regularly.
A fire broke out in the hotel on 1 July 2011. There were no fatalities or injuries, and damage was limited to a few of the lower floors.
The hotel has won the following awards:
- "Best Business Hotel in the UK 2011" by UK Business Traveller Magazine.
- "Best Hotel in Europe 2010" by German Business Traveller Magazine.
- "England's leading business hotel 2009" by World Travel Awards Europe.
