Conrad Hilton Hotel, London

My London holiday trip was going freezingly well. But, given that it was Christmas time in London, many hotels were very expensive on different days, and I was fixed on not staying in anything but full service. So while searching and searching, I found a single night stay at the Conrad St. James that was affordable for this particular day. Given my recent pattern of trying to get to really nice properties (this is the best Hilton in all of London), I took the plunge to deal with only one day of stay (this involves getting there, unpacking, staying, photographing, repacking) because the rate was reasonable, and given its location in the heart of the areas I want to be in, I did it.


The hotel is sitting at the St. James Park tube station, which is infinitely convenient. But I like to be difficult, well no actually I just had a lot of bags and didn't want to deal with a long walk from the Park Lane Hilton, where I was at, to a tube station, so I just got a London taxi. It was a great move on my part. So easy on my body and mental state.
Side seating area off the main lobby

The Room

I was upgraded to a junior suite style room on the top floor. It had a good amount of room and the bathroom was insanely large (like as big as the room main area itself). Overall very nice, lots of room to work or kick back.
In this case, all these were included and no extra charge Wall mounted Bryedo.  This seems to be the trend now
All the self-care items you might want Pretty large in comparison to many others on the floor
No name on it, sadness

The Lounge

Ah yes, the Executive Lounge, the sanctuary inside the sanctuary. This one was really large, tons of seating, and only used to 35% capacity at its most busy while I was there.
Evening service is ready
And then Breakfast time Which I finished out with custom ordered poached eggs
Most people's side Rob's side, all complimentary with lounge access


Small, it barely had enough for what I am currently focusing on, but, well it was enough A few meeting and event rooms, I don't think this is a main focus on their end


This has a few places to eat and drink aside from the Club, but given only one day and my appointments for the evening in Whitehall, I had little opportunity to utilize them for the day I was here. Also I could never find the Orchard Room where the tea is typically held.
A nice gardeny type bar area.  Very calm The fancy fancy restaurant.  Steaks and the elegant food, wasn't super busy A pub, pretty popular, lots of people and they were friendly.  Nice place to spend some time in the evening


A 5 star old school property with much traditional style feelings, specifically English and particularly geared towards an older slower pace which at times I do relish.

Tip: You can purchase the lounge separately from your room type, at £75 if there are two people I think it's well worth it.
