90 Years Young

 

The Sheraton Grand London on Park Lane is back and is creating a new story in the heart of London Mayfair

 

 

The Sheraton Grand London Park Lane celebrated its relaunch in late October following a multi-million pound renovation.

The new look of the iconic hotel was unveiled in a celebration led by hotel manager, Kieran Quinn, who has been at the helm since 2012. It was a night to marvel at the landmark property after its meticulous two-year restoration. Mayfair’s art deco address is back.

The hotel first opened in 1927 and has long been seen as one of the best examples of art deco in London. To celebrate the exciting new chapter, guests were invited into the renowned Ballroom, with its 11,000 square-foot space and Grade II listing. However, it’s the Silver Gallery entrance, with its glittery silvery palladium- leaf walls and stylised murals of Grecian muses that catch the eye.

The relaunch included British-inspired cocktails and canapes in the new Smith & Whistle – the name of the 1920s style bar is inspired from the fictional story of Detective Inspector Smith and his pursuit of legendary high-class criminal Mr Whistle. The hotel’s Italian restaurant, Mercante, was home to show-cooking stations with fresh pasta being made live and entertainment from various acts throughout. From its heyday as the hangout of choice for socialites and celebrities, the Sheraton Grand is continuing to bring people together in the heart of Mayfair.

With its enviable location opposite Green Park, the hotel has added modern and stylish design touches throughout the 303 bedrooms, famed Palm Court, Ballroom and Silver Gallery. Keeping its heritage and vibrant atmosphere, the hotel will long be the backdrop for London’s vibrant social sway.
