The iconic, award-laden property sits at the heart of London's Mayfair and has played host to countless high-end business events over its 52-year history, as well as Muhammad Ali's birthday party.

This week, the hotel will host the prestigious C&IT Excellence Awards, recognising and celebrating companies applying best practice to the creation, planning, production and management of innovative and successful events within B2B sectors.

The London Hilton on Park Lane has 453 rooms, including 56 suites, five bars and three restaurants, including Michelin-starred Galvin at Windows, which provides 360-degree views of the capital from its 28th floor vantage point.

Meetings & events

The property offers eight modern meeting rooms, all well-equipped following a refurbishment, and the largest of which can host up to 50 delegates for a reception. For larger events, up to 1,250 guests can be catered for in the signature Grand Ballroom, one of the largest in London, while the Wellington Ballrom & Harvest Suite can host 550 & 200 respectively; and the Crystal Palace Suite holds up to 100 for banquets or private dinners.

Elsewhere, the lower-ground-floor Spa to You offers 'the latest treatments from around the world' and the hotel's 24-hour fitness centre includes a sauna and steamroom.
