After leaving Sydney at 12.30pm Tuesday 18th December 2012 we made it to our hotel at approximately 9.30am Wednesday 19th December (which equates to 8.30pm Wednesday 19th December 2012. We had been on the road for 32 hours. We were exhausted, looked like death warmed up and I believe we may have actually smelt as well.

Saturday was disembarkation day which is always sad. Needless to say, packing to go home is never as enjoyable as when you're preparing to leave on vacation. We had a great time on this cruise. The first week was quiet and relaxing with all the sea days, and it was a little hard to change gears when all of the port days arrived at the end, but we …

Jet lag tore me from slumber quite early this morning. I tossed and turned in bed until 6:30am, when I could take it no more, and went to shower and fetch an early breakfast. I have discovered a delicious new cereal here called Flakes and Fruit. Its basically a much tastier version of Raisin Bran, as instead of just raisins it has ...

This was really interesting. The tour took us around the spots where Jack killed the innocent women. Of course many of the places no longer, apart from one. We stood on the actual spot where the body was found. We also had a drink at ...

Historical Traveler Reviews London Hilton on Park Lane
We were going up to London to catch a show and to buy our wedding rings so "A Night at the London Hilton" just seemed the right thing to do.
My partner and I were very disappointed in the level of service offered at this Hilton hotel. In particular, the service by the restaurant manger in Trader Vics. We expected the Hilton to be one of the best hotels in London, but left with the impression that this chain of hotels has lost it's sparkle. We would definitely not consider a Hilton hotel when booking accomodation in the future and my partner and I travel a lot.
Great View but stuffy and over-priced
Stayed on business.
The "discounted" room rate was high at £150 b&b. The rack rate was astronomical. Rooms were a bit old fashioned but comfortable.
Great views of London and good conference catering. Breakfast was excellent. Lift service could be slow at peak times.
Bar prices were comical with drinks costing around £5 -£7. Restaurant prices were extortionate. Not a very friendly atmosphere. Very helpful doorman from Abergavenny!
Wouldn't spend my own money here!
Having just come from statying in Paris for 4 nights, where the rooms are very tiny and the hotels only had a front desk and small lobby area, this place seemed like a dream - spacious and clean, and our room was a good size with a large bathroom and a good view...we were pleased to find out our dinner was included for our first night, but the food ended up being terrible and none of the wait staff spoke very good english...the 2nd day we were there, we arrived back at 6:00pm in the evening to find the power on our floor, and the 10 floors above us, was completely out....we sat in the dark for half and hour before we tried to get to the lobby via the fire staircase - but it was pitch black, there were no emergency lights...finally, after over 2 hours had passed (and no one had bothered to notify us what was going on, and they were not answering the front desk phone) we ventured out and found a back way through the kitchen to the lobby....when asked what was going on, they had no real answer for us. My husband had to rant and rave and spoke to several managers before we were offered another room. The new room ended up being much nicer than the other, but it was a hassle to move all of our things there - we were never offered any help.
Where can I start? This hotel was dreadful and I didn't even pay for the room! I had travelled a lot on business and accumulated Hilton loyalty points which meant I could have a free stay in the London Hilton.
Things started off pretty poorly. After a long flight and no sleep, we were sent off to two of the tiniest and shabbiest rooms I think I've ever been offered. Dirty and torn curtains, pilled and stained bed coverings, a big chunk knocked out of the wall in the entry. Peeling paint in the hallway. What's more, they did not connect, even though the desk clerk had assured us that they did.
Forgets the basics
Great location near both Hyde and Green Park, however the beds were extremely uncomforatable. The matresses are literally only about 2 inches thick and the non-feather pillows were very hard. The rooms are also pretty tired as you will be after a few nights in this hotel. A much more comfortable room can be had at the Sheraton Park Tower.
I stayed with my uncle and his friend the end of last year. I arrived on my own, and was poorly greeted. A doorman was standing there just looking at me, didn't bother assisting me. Had to ask him what to do with the car, which her then informed me of the hotel car park, which was way over priced. Oh, which I had to drive the car myself, something that you wouldn't expect from a london hotel, with such standard.
What a pleasure it was returning each day to our room at this magnificent hotel. The quality of the view, the furnishings, the cleanliness, the attention to detail, the service, the food, were all excellent. Having access to the Executive Lounge certainly capped off a wonderful experience as it provided a welcoming oasis after a long day sightseeing. Enjoying breakfast in the top floor restaurant for a very reasonable (additional) fee was an experience worth every cent. We walked for most of our sightseeing excursions (strolling through Green Park in Spring just HAS to be experienced) but the hotel is also close to bus and tube stations that link to anywhere in London. This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that we would be more than happy to revisit.
Tired and Overpriced
The room was tired and in need of refurbishment.The bed was uncomfortable and I only had one hard pillow.I thought I was doing time rather than staying in a luxurious hotel. No tea making facilities.Shower faulty. It was almost as bad as the Gatwick Hilton.
