No one likes a show-off, but to say that the Pavilion Hotel London is a favourite amongst international celebrities is just a fact. The property is popular with fashion, music and media stars, having welcomed guests as diverse as Melinda Messenger, David Blaine, Naomi Campbell and The Beach Boys through its doors and into the hotel's beautifully decorated rooms.
But why do celebrities like it so much? The hotel is a sensationally stylish and irresistibly chic property where each of the rooms is lavishly decorated in its own theme with matching fittings and decor. Take for instance the 'Highland Fling' room, which is decorated in tartan patterns and Scottish materials, or the 'Metallica' room, which is made of contemporary materials moulded into futuristic looking shapes (James Hetfield not included). Each room is vastly different to the next, allowing guests not only to have a completely individual experience, but to choose the room that best suits their personality and many guests do exactly this, some even having a particular favourite that they return to. Despite some of the rooms' particular styles, all have at least a private bathroom, television and telephone, providing all modern comforts.
The Pavilion is located in the area of Paddington close to the West End, making it ideal for guests who want to catch a theatre performance in the evenings. Oxford Street, Marble Arch and Hyde Park are all within walking distance, whilst the nearest tube station is Paddington. Paddington has access to several underground services including the Circle, District, Hammersmith & City and Bakerloo lines as well as National Rail services which international guests may use to explore the rest of the country. Districts such as the up-market areas of Chelsea and Kensington, as well as the tourist area of Greenwich and the financial business location of Canary Wharf are all short tube rides away.
Go celebrity spotting without ever having to leave the hotel! It's a favourite destination for the rich and famous.

Guests arriving to the hotel by air can take the appropriate Express service into the city centre. The Heathrow Express runs to Paddington with a journey time of approximately 15 minutes, whilst the Gatwick Express runs to Victoria in around 30. Guests arriving via Paddington are well placed to reach the hotel on foot, whilst those arriving through Victoria can take the Circle Line to Paddington station. On exiting the station guests should walk along London Street until they reach Sussex Gardens onto which they should take a left. Pavilion is at the end of the road. Alternatively there are taxi services available from any of the city's airports or main train stations.
Those arriving by car will find that the most direct route through London involves taking the Junction 16 exit from the M25 onto the M40 and subsequently the A40. Guests should stay on the A40 all the way through central London until they reach the B411 Porchester Road on the right opposite Westbourne Green. Guests should follow the road to the end and take a left onto Bishop's Bridge Road. Guests should then take the third right onto Eastbourne Terrace followed by a left onto Praed Street and an immediate right onto London Street, which will lead to Sussex Gardens. Guests should turn left onto Sussex Gardens where they will find the hotel at the end.
