The Park Tower Knightsbridge Hotel is a luxury 5-star hotel in London, England. It is situated at 101 Knightsbridge near Hyde Park, in the Belgravian district of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Its restaurant One-O-One, headed by chef Pascal Proyart, has been voted "Best Fish Restaurant" by Harden's Guide for five consecutive years.
The building was designed by Richard Seifert and was opened on 21 June 1973 as the Sheraton Park Tower by Prime Minister Edward Heath. It has a close similarity to the tower of Elmbank Gardens, an office block in Glasgow which Seifert's practice designed around the same period.
When Starwood Hotels bought Sheraton, they moved the hotel from their Sheraton division to The Luxury Collection division, but somewhat confusingly kept the Sheraton name on the hotel for many years until it was renamed in 2013, for its 40th anniversary, as The Park Tower Knightsbridge. The hotel is owned by Mahdi Al Tajir, an Emirati businessman and former diplomat.
