London Hilton on Park Lane - Luxury Family Stay


stylish family



 When you become parents a lot of things change, from your daily life to planning trips away it's simply not the same anymore, for the better of course. Those quick city breaks in luxury hotels can often feel like they are suddenly out of reach but really this doesn't have to be the case if you find the right place. This is certainly the case with London Hilton on Park Lane where we recently stayed for two nights and offered that great balance of catering for both the needs of adults and kids without the compromise.

Firstly it's location is perfect with Hyde park literally right on it's door step as well as Green Park and short stroll over to Buckingham palace, it's also a fairly quick taxi ride from Paddington if your coming into the City by train and you are met with a warm welcome from the moment you arrive at the doors of the hotel. The check in was extremely easy and our room was ready on arrival with our luggage being sent up by concierge. It's a very tall building with our room being on the 16th floor affording it some of the best views in the city.

We stayed in one of the spacious Park Lane Suites which is perfect for families with a large double room and walk-in wardrobe and separate lounge with a large couch, seating area and space for a roll out bed and cot. The bathroom is also a place of divine relaxation after a long day exploring the city, with a deep bath and separate rain shower I enjoyed a long bubble bath after our first day of travel.

With all suites and executive rooms you also have access to the club lounge which is a great place for adults (and children) to relax in the evening, meet other families and hotel guests over some light meals, canap├ęs and drinks. The suite also had two TV's meaning that when we did want some down time we could pop some cartoons on in the lounge and have a moment to actually read a book. There is also a coffee table perfect for the kids to spend sometime with their sticker books. I often feel what makes a hotel great is the small touches such as fast wifi, silent air con, soft bathrobes and genuine welcoming and friendly staff and Hilton on Park Lane has that all. We also tried the room service on the second night of our stay and the service was very quick and the kids really enjoyed eating pizza in the suite while we treated ourselves to some G&T's with a view.

What we really loved was waking up to such inspiring views across London, in the main bedroom was a large panoramic window and in the lounge another massive window looking out across Hyde Park and being blessed with sunshine over our stay meant a beautiful sunset on both nights. Both mornings we enjoyed a fantastic breakfast with plenty of options for the whole family including gluten free muffins, full English, waffles, pancakes and plenty of fresh fruit and freshly squeezed juices, children under 18 also eat free when staying with their parents.

During our stay the Hilton also arranged a VIP tour of Hamleys which I highly recommend for anyone travelling to the city with kids and wants a more in-depth, fun and entertaining tour of the worlds oldest toys shop. I will be putting a separate post about this very soon. 

The London Hilton on Park Lane also has interconnecting family rooms and when booking a family break with them they will treat you to some exclusive perks including fun activity packs for kids, children tv channels, complimentary wifi and children under 5 eat free in the Podium restaurant. What we loved most was the perfect location, whenever we travel to London that is really important as time is of the essence and John always likes to stop into some of the clothing stores we can't find in London, as London is the perfect place to pick up something special like a new evening dress or prom dress if you have a teenager or shirt and the London Hilton is really the best place to have access to all of that.

  6. I'm very much a premier inn gal (I sleep so well in their beds) but this is another hotel to consider next time we head to London!

    1. I agree we love Premier Inn - very comfy but it's also nice having a bit more room with kids and a change every now and then :)
