The 303-room Sheraton Park Lane Hotel in London is to be reflagged under Starwood Hotels & Resorts’ Sheraton Grand brand later this year, marking the first appearance of the brand in the UK capital. The 90-year-old iconic property has been getting a makeover with a multimillion pound renovation taking place at the hotel. It will be renamed the Sheraton Grand London Park Lane. Starwood launched the Sheraton Grand chain in 2015 and it currently comprises 27 hotels, six of which are in the Middle East and Europe.
The hotel was built in the 1927 to the designs of the architects Adie, Button and Partners, in a grand Art Deco style, and was constructed by the developer Sir Bracewell Smith. The building is a fine example with a mansard roof and Portland stone facade. The building is Grade II listed. The rooms on the front overlooking Green Park towards Buckingham Palace.
