Accommodation

There are 153 guest rooms and 43 suites at the Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane, and all have the feel of a smart, well-heeled Mayfair home or apartment.

From the light, bright superior and deluxe rooms with urban views over Mayfair streets or Westminster, to the elegant simplicity of the premier rooms overlooking Hyde Park, all are cosy, comfortably furnished and have everything you need for an urban stay including one of the world’s most comfortable beds.

The hotel’s suite portfolio offers a range of accommodation, enhanced with fireplaces, terraces and stunning views of the city and park. The suites with a terrace – ranging from a Junior Conservatory to the Garden Suite are a little unusual in London and have that priceless commodity in an urban setting – beautifully landscaped semi-private outdoor spaces.

Every suite has a uniqueness about it as evidenced by the Hyde Park Suite, one of three speciality suites, opulently redesigned by Pierre-Yves Rochon to celebrate the property’s 50th anniversary. Located on the ninth floor with a spacious open plan living and dining area, a unique feature is its secluded Glass Lounge with floor to ceiling windows showcasing panoramic views over Hyde Park and beyond.

The Presidential Suite meanwhile has a more classic feel, with floor to ceiling windows looking out over Park Lane and Hyde Park. Situated on the fifth floor, this suite can be configured as a two- or three-bedroom suite for families or friends travelling together. With lounge seating and dining for six, the suite features a private fireplace and beautiful rosewood panelling.

There are several adapted rooms for guests with disabilities and the hotel is wheelchair accessible.

For early arrivals, guests are invited to relax until their rooms are ready in the 10th Floor Lounge.

Style

On the site of the original Four Seasons Inn on the Park, the company’s first European hotel which opened in 1970, this property effectively introduced the United Kingdom to the Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts brand.

It opened in competition to the more traditional, classic Mayfair grande dames and has more than held its own, continually re-inventing its facilities with hidden gems and unexpected additions over the years to meet with changing tastes. The hidden sunken garden terrace for cocktails or snacks on Park Lane is one example - the deeply glamorous, rich-hued public spaces with the nod to the 1930s another as is the rooftop spa which offers treatments looking out over an iconic London skyline. The subtlety and sensitivity of these small touches bring the hotel alive and when coupled with Four Seasons’ friendly yet unobtrusive service, really helps make this hotel stand out.

The hotel’s main restaurant, Amaranto, is a light filled ground floor venue looking out over the property’s sunken and hidden terrace. Featuring a private dining room and a sun-filled semi-private Captain’s Table for an intimate dining experience, the restaurant offers a wide range of global favourites, all served with an Italian twist by Executive Chef Henry Brosi.

To cool down in the summer months, the culinary team serve delicious ice cream sandwiches every weekend whilst the ultimate treat has to be the Dom Pérignon ultimate experience with a special pairing menu.

What We Love

  • The location – on Hamilton Place – within easy walking distance to Knightsbridge, Mayfair, Green Park, Park Lane and Piccadilly but set back enough from the main thoroughfares to ensure a peaceful night’s sleep

  • The legendary Four Seasons service – kind, cordial, efficient, humble and genuine

  • Amaranto - Executive Chef Henry Brosi conjures up unpretentious, delicious Italian fare. You eat here for the food as much as to say “lunch at the Four Seasons” ….
