LONDON—Sheraton Hotels & Resorts, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, has designated the Sheraton Grand London Park Lane, welcoming it to the brand’s premier tier of hotels. Joining 32 other Sheraton Grand properties worldwide, the hotel will start a new chapter in its 90-year history this October, following a multimillion-dollar top-to-bottom renovation, according to the brand.
“Following a stunning renovation on this Art Deco hotel in the heart of Mayfair, we are very proud to welcome the Sheraton Grand London Park Lane into this premier tier of hotels as it represents the Sheraton brand’s new elevated and customized approach to design,” said Elena Mendez, VP, Sheraton, Westin and SSB brands in Europe, Africa and Middle East. “The designation of the Sheraton Grand status heralds in a new era for the renovated hotel, becoming one of London’s emblematic historic hotels once again, further reinforcing Sheraton as a trusted voice in global travel.”
Having originally opened in 1927, the 303-room property underwent a complete transformation of its guestrooms and public spaces, combining modernity with restoration to retain the original art deco facade. The renovation features the addition of 43 Sheraton Club rooms and suites, which give guests access to the Sheraton Club Lounge.
Additionally, the hotel’s 21 suites were reconfigured to maximize space, with select rooms offering the option to connect adjoining suites, allowing for larger family travel. The hotel’s Grand Suite is comprised of an entrance lobby, master bedroom and bathroom, and living and dining areas. Rooms are interconnected with double-width, sliding pocket doors, enabling the entire suite to be opened into a single space, the brand said.
