From the beautiful boutiques of nearby Portobello to the grand old establishments surrounding Hyde Park and Marylebone, Paddington is the perfect launch pad for some of west London’s best hotels. 

Park Grand London Lancaster Gate 

This chic boutique situated in one of London’s leading residential streets offers superb access to a variety of transport links, premium shopping experiences and arguably the capital’s most enchanting green space: Kensington Gardens.

The Landmark

Five-star luxury is the name of the game in this magnificent London location. A spa and health club, swimming pool and excellent service add to the sense of lavishness, but it’s the hotel’s celebrated Winter Garden restaurant set in a giant glass-roofed atrium that gets the guests really purring.

The Montcalm Marble Arch

A stone’s throw from the retail paradise of Oxford Street, this eye-catching crescent-shaped mansion-house sits at the top of luxury Park Lane and teems with marble floors, crystal chandeliers and heavy silk curtains. The slow classical music flowing through the lobby is a welcome sound after a day of overcrowded shopping streets.
