This morning the city of London came alive for us, a dramatic change from the slow Sunday pace of yesterday. The weather was crisp and overcast, yet again pleasant. We walked 5-6 blocks to Fortnum and Mason where we had an elegant breakfast. We could hear the Lord Mayor of London delivering a speech in the adjoining dining room. His voice carried …
This morning we awakened early and enjoyed a morning pot of tea for me and coffee for JoRina. The concierge provided us with directions to Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. We walked a short 5-7 blocks to church before the people of London stirred. Mass was peaceful and moving for both of us. After Mass we found a nice bakery on Piccadilly St …
Although our flight was comfortable, we were very tired when we landed. Our Smith's Airport driver didn't even blink at the sight of the luggage. We swiftly went through immigration and customs, and met the driver at the information booth as planned. London's traffic is such that it took 1 hr to travel the 16 miles to our hotel. The hotel was …
Where to start? Well, I was unable to blog yesterday for several reasons. One, I was utterly exhausted, and two, the internet was not working in our room. Although they have
tried to repair it, it still does not work and I am currently downstairs in the business center.
Hopefully my memory will be clear enough to recount what we did …
It was hot and humid when we hit London but we knew we weren't really staying ... so we could ignore it. We made the long walk from to the Train, then from the Train to Terminal 4, then from Terminal 4 to the Hilton. We were very sweaty by the time we arrived; odd in London. When we reached the Hilton, we did not see Kyla waiting for us (she was …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton London Green Park
I've stayed in quite a number of upscale hotels in London and this was the worst experience I've had. There are two (related) problems. The rooms do not have air conditioning -- which I think is extraordinary for a Hilton. This means if you want to be cool in the summer, you need to leave the window open. And here's the second problem -- the street noise is unbearable. I stayed two nights and had awful, interrupted sleep. The traffic is really loud and relentless.
Green Park Hilton in London
Lovely old style hotel. Rooms are small but comfortable. Hotel is on a quiet street just off Piccadilly. Great location for theater and sightseeing. You can walk just about everywhere. Green Park tube is on the Heathrow line. No a/c in summer. We did not care because it was winter.
Some Negatives Some Positives
The rooms were very nicely furnished and extremely clean. Street noise is a problem on the front side of the building w/ the windows are very old and do not mute any noise. Choose a room in the back if you want to sleep. The location was great, w/in walking distance to many attractions and right near the Green Park Tube Stop. The concierge service was terrible and were not able to provide any useful information, in fact none of them seemed to be from the area. The staff really needs to be better trained before this hotel can really consider itself to be rated the way it is. There are other Hiltons in the area that should be considered before this one.
No in-room safe
We stayed at the Hilton Green Park for 5 nights in March. The only negative is that none of the rooms have in-room safes. We opted to use a safety deposit box provided by the hotel, but it was inconvenient.
Each time we wanted to access the box, we had to wait at the reception desk (which was usually quite busy). The staff was friendly, the location was convenient (2-3 blocks to Green Park Underground station), and the breakfast was great. The rooms were nicely furnished.
Stay there for 4 night from the 31st of December and really enjoy my stay !Booked this hotel through lastminute.fr following the review of the Tripadvisor user of the November 19 (If I followed the other review, I would never have been at this hotel), and was really happy of my choice !First of all situation is great, within a short walk, all is near the hotel : piccadilly, soho, covent gardern, oxford street.But the more important is not here, it is the recent refurbishment that is really astonishing and change this hotel from an old style hotel to a stylish place. First of all the public areas are the best with a very stylish and comtemporary design, very impressive (dark wood panels, luxury furnitures) and a new restaurant and bar (the tiger) very nice.The rooms (I get a standard one) are very comtemporary also but a little bit without personality : white walls, light woods, clear carpets... But you feel very good in them and above all they are very clean. I never seen a cleaner hotel since I came in London (and it was the 11th time). The bathroom are new too and the water pressure was astonishing : we never lack of hot water. Bath amentities very stylish.Regarding the rooms, we had the pleasure the 2nd night to be upgraded free because we had the hilton hhonors card (it's free !) from our standard room to a deluxe room.Las review said "Standard Room was great, delux must be out of this world !". One the one hand, it's not all true. Standard room is really great, but deluxe room is just a little bit better. Not so bigger, all the same decoration (really the same), deluxe is only a king bed, a plant and better bathroom amenities (from carven !). If you have to pay it, I'm not sure it really worth the price. But on the other hand I think that deluxe rooms have better views and places (our one was on the 1st floor facing the street, very quiet, and with a balcony !). I've heard it's only Â£20 more, so it can be cool to take it. Only bad point : no bathrobe and slippers neither a miniber.Another great point : the hilton breakfast was perfect and in the ver stylish tiger bar, it was a very good start for the day. The room service (use it the last night) wasn't so expensive but very fine.Only bad points : one lift didn't work during our stay, you get only standard TV channels plus SkyNews. I've heard there will be soon satellite channels but for the moment they have a problem. Another important bad point is that there is not A/C in the hotel ! Better avoid to choose it during summer ! Only a fan in the room... For a 4*, it's not cool !An important thing is that the staff is the best I ever had in a London Hotel, and I already came more than 10 times in the Capital. Never had to complaint from him. In every hotel I came before had little problems (red carnation hotels staff was the worst for almost everything, radisson edwardian the rudest while Le Meridien was too distant). Was a real pleasure !In conclusion, very stylish hotel due to the astonishing refurbishment, marvellous staff but be carefull if you want A/C : it is nota available here !(And sorry for my bad english)
Amazing refurb. All New
Standard Room was great, delux must be out of this world! Fantastic design through out the hotel. Service good, helpful and well mannered.
Did not eat in the new Brasserie and Bar, but the new decor looked simply brilliant. Location Mayfair, ideal.
Stayed in an "executive" room in November 2002. The room was small, in an appalling decorative state, stains on the carpets and walls, water dripped from the aircon, the bathroom was grubby (ashtray still had ash in it despite being a non-smoking room), plumbing lousy. The view from the bedroom window overlooked a series of back alleys and roofs that were covered in rubbish. The dining room also was in a very shabby state. All credit to Hilton they took note of our comments and invited us back FOC. The manager said (in a letter) that the hotel was due for a major refurbishment. Well, by March 15th 2003 this certainly hadn't happened. We were given a suite, admittedly large, but again the room was in a poor state, cupboard and draw fronts were loose, the knob of the bath-taps parted company on first use and there were fast food wrappers and remnants of the previous occupants food in the cupboard and refrigerator. The staff seem polite and fiendly enough.Sorry, but even given a second chance I couldn't recommend this place to anyone.
Not worth the money
This hotel is really not what you expect from 4 star at £140 per night. The room I had was small and tatty. No fridge. The television was lower than the bed making viewing and changing channel from bed impossible. The sink tap was difficult to turn and the water sprayed everywhere. The shower could not be said to spray at all - more of a dribble. Overall, a depressing place to stay.
Quiet & Excellent Location
I stayed at the Green Park once in January and again in February of of this year and am on my way over again and will be spending two days there next week. The location of this hotel is excellent. Just off Piccadilly and the Green Park tube station, you can get anywhere with relative ease. It is on a side street that is NOT a major route to anywhere so it is quite quiet for London. I actually slept the entire night through. The common rooms are charming and very comfortable for chatting, reading or sipping an afternoon "cuppa" or sherry. I would recommend this hotel.
It was better before Hilton bought it
We have stayed at the Green Park in the past and were quite pleased but things have changed. We were quoted the room price in dollars and charged in pounds. Hilton refused to admit the error and adjust the bill. Alas, we won't be returning. Another good hotel killed by a chain.
