The 303-bedroom Sheraton London Park Lane has joined the premier tier of the Sheraton brand, following the completion of a multi-million pound renovation.
Now known as the Sheraton Grand London Park Lane, the property joins 32 other Sheraton Grand hotels worldwide. There are a total of 440 Sheraton Hotels & Resorts, the largest and most widespread brand within Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, with a presence in more than 70 countries.
Sheraton Grand was launched as a premier tier last year as part of 10-point plan to rejuvenate the Sheraton brand.
The refurbishment of the Art Deco London property, which originally opened in 1927, includes the reconfiguration of 21 suites and the addition of 43 Sheraton Club rooms, providing access to the Sheraton Club Lounge with access to complimentary food throughout the day.
Mercante, a new Italian restaurant, has recently opened as part of the renovation, to join the Smith & Whistle bar, which launched last year.
Elena Mendez, vice-president, Sheraton, Europe, Africa and Middle East, said the Sheraton Grand label represented the brand's new elevated and customised approach to design.
"The designation of the Sheraton Grand status heralds in a new era for the renovated hotel, becoming one of London's emblematic historic hotels once again, further reinforcing Sheraton as a trusted voice in global travel," he said.
Room rates for a classic room at the hotel start at £249.
