The Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane  is an absolute oasis in the heart of London’s Mayfair District. While the location is superb, the real treat is the hotel itself. Think luxury travel at it’s best.

According to internationally reknown decorator, Pierre-Yves Rochon, who oversaw the recent renovation, the goal was  “clubby contemporary.”  “The guest rooms were inspired by staterooms on luxury passenger ships.“  There’s a modern take on traditional .   .   .   with a splash of Art Deco.”

It’s quite simply the impeccable attention to detail. That says it all, as even the hallways grab your attention and make you pause.

Pure luxury is what you want in a 5 star hotel if you love luxury travel. Pure luxury is what you get at this The Four Seasons jewell, plus a whole lot more.

Modern and surprisingly large bathrooms, complete with two sinks and television built into the mirror, are a surprise. Where else in London do you find such spacious rooms and bathrooms?  Nothing old or stuffy at The Park Lane.

We were traveling with our 13 year old granddaughter.    In advance of our arrival, the concierge arranged a horseback ride through Hyde Park. Imagine a young equestrian arriving at stables with cobblestone streets hundreds of years old!

While Four Seasons is known for being kid friendly, our experience was personalized beyond expectation. Stay tuned for more about our culinary adventures in an upcoming post.

Of course, no visit to London is complete without afternoon tea, and we enjoyed this wonderful English tradition in the Amaranto lounge. Cozy and intimate, with piano music in the background and a lit fireplace, this was the ultimate way to end a sightseeing filled day in London.

Unfortunately, our trip came to an end too soon. We will be back and on our list will be a ride in the hotel’s  Rolls Royce or Bentley to dinner or the theater. Take my word for it, this is as close to royal treatment as it gets!

NOTE
