45 Park Lane Hotel London
Reminiscent of the 1930s
The doorman of 45 Park Lane Hotel opened the door and greeted me with a bow. Before entering, I turned around and looked. I was overjoyed to find that Hyde Park was just across the street. I was led to the front desk immediately by two English gentlemen, Raul and Ansis, who is always smartly and perfectly dressed from cufflinks to smile. I already noticed people commenting on them a month earlier while I was checking online. More tourists have begun to pay more attention to Tripadvisor reviews to learn about the firsthand hotel experiences. Under the 45 Park Lane Hotel listing, I recorded one comment from a Mr. Kresavchikk, who said: ”On my way to the hotel, I called to request for a fast checkin. After the arrival at the hotel, I just said my name and witnessed the fastest checkin process in the history. Soon, Lawrence took us to the room. I would love to go again”
Then at the front desk, I also made some enquiries about the activities in London, from the exhibition of the Royal College of Art, New Wave bar to the alternative new attractions. To my surprise, Raul answered all the questions to my heart‘s content. Later, I found that the position of a simple receptionist does not exist and all the receptionists here are actually qualified concierges. For the guests, the advantage of this change is obvious. Now you can get information right here at Checkin or from one of the receptionists on your way to your room. In other hotels, you have to make your way to the concierge eventually to do this.
