The Escape | The Park Tower Knightsbridge

With Dubai license plates in the valet's driveway, a spoilt-for-choice array of Arabic restaurants, and both Harrods and Harvey Nichols just a stone’s throw away from the hotel, The Park Tower Knightsbridge will be your home away from home on your next London escape

Housed in a soaring round tower overlooking Hyde Park and Harrods department store, Luxury Collection hotel The Park Tower Knightsbridge rises up in grey contrast to surrounding area. But don’t let the brutalist architecture confuse you, stay here for the panoramic views, fabulous tax-free shopping, attentive service and some of the best Lebanese restaurants England has to offer. 

The Park Tower Knightsbridge

A favourite for both corporate and vacationing travellers, the five-star hotel, boasts 271 guestrooms and suites with breath-taking views overlooking London’s skyline. Thanks to the fabulously long vistas, the bedrooms are all brightly-lit and are decked out with sleek marble bathrooms — look out for the Molton Brown toiletries.

The Park Tower Knightsbridge plays host to an idyllic tea parlour where Bazaar found themselves nibbling on scones and sipping on bubbles one afternoon. We dined in the ever so charming Hyde Bar, located on the ground floor of the hotel, and ate our way through cold mezzes and gourmet shawarmas – you can take the gals out of Dubai, right?

And if you weren’t impressed enough, the hotel offers a personal butler service whereby guests can enjoy a welcome drink, complimentary in-room traditional English breakfast, pressing of three items of clothing upon arrival and packing/unpacking services.

Fringed by some of the best shopping, most iconic art galleries, grand museums and public parks that London has to offer, all but a brisk walk away, this Bazaar-approved getaway is perfect for a quick-fix business trip or a lengthier holiday with the whole family.
