Mayfair, where the Hilton is located, is one of London's most prestigious areas - it is home to the Ritz after all! The Hilton is located in the heart of London's West End, a short stroll from Theatreland, the hustle and bustle of Piccadilly and the royal grandeur of Buckingham Palace and the Mall. The Hilton Green Park is an excellent base for any visit to London, be it a business trip or a holiday.
The hotel is 2 minutes from Green Park Underground Station, which links the Hilton with all areas within London via the Piccadilly, Victoria and Jubilee lines; however due to the hotel's central location, many of the sights on any visitor's list are within walking distance. Green Park and Buckingham Palace are on the doorstep, along with the shops, theatres and restaurants of the West End.
Heathrow Airport is reached via the Piccadilly line or taxi, and the Gatwick Express leaves from Victoria, just one stop on the underground away from Green Park on the Victoria line.
The hotel is home to the Tiger Green Brasserie and the Berry Bar and Lounge, which serve up international cuisine, bar snacks, afternoon tea and drinks, where guests can relax after a hard day of sightseeing, shopping or meetings.
The Hilton prides itself on having excellent customer service, and the multilingual staff at the 24 hour reception really will go out of their way to help you, offering a concierge service, theatre and tour ticket booking, currency exchange and a left luggage service.
The hotel also has a 24 hour business centre, which offers wireless internet access, meeting and conference rooms for 2 to 100 people, and audio-visual equipment, fax and photocopying services, secretarial and typing service and a courier.
The hotel has 162 well-appointed rooms set over five floors, decorated in a contemporary style that contrasts with the traditional Georgian facade. The rooms range from the bright, simple yet comfortable Guest Rooms to the sumptuous luxury of the Suites. All rooms have flatscreen televisions, kitchenette, DVD/CD player, daily newspaper, luxury bedding, high speed (wired) internet access and direct dial phones. The Deluxe Plus rooms offer slippers and bathrobes and upgraded bathroom amenities, whereas the Suite offers you a home from home, with a seperate seating area with large flat screen television and iPod docking station, dining area with table and four chairs and changing room.
Modern international cuisine is served up at the elegant Tiger Green Brasserie, captained by celebrity chef Brian Turner, who autographs menus on request, for a special souvenir of your time in London. Diners can chose between eating in the dining area or the light-flooded conservatory. Children are welcome when accompanied by an adult and a kid's menu is available. Vegans and vegetarians need not worry either, as their needs are catered for by the wide-ranging classic Hilton menu. Lunch is served 12.30 to 14.30 and the restaurant reopens at 5.30 for the dinner service until 22.00.
Guests can experience two great British traditions in the Berry Bar & Lounge: Gin and Afternoon Tea. Not traditionally taken together, the Hilton Green park has mixed the two to create the Gin Afternoon Tea, which sounds as though it could have you in bed by dinner time! Bar snacks are available in the evening, and guests can chose drinks from the extensive wine and cocktail lists.
A continental breakfast buffet comes with all room rates.
Children's films are available to entertain your youngsters, but with the parks and Hamleys just a short walk away they probably won't be required! The Hilton aims to treat children with the same customer service it does its adult guests and every step is taken to make sure that their stay is as comfortable as possible. A children's menu is available in the restaurant and connecting rooms are available, as a cots and high chairs. The hotel even has its own playground!
The Hilton has two accessible guestrooms located on the ground and first floors, close to the passenger lifts, which have roll-in showers and enough room for a wheelchair user to manoeuver. Guide dogs are permitted in all areas of the hotel, and there is permanent ramp access at the front of the hotel. All floors are served by the lift, expect the basement, which has stairs.
