What is the best Hilton in London?

I want to do all the touristy things, be near a fun/lively area (am married in my 20s). I prefer a 4-5 star hotel, which I think most Hiltons are.
Please suggest!

Hilton Park Lane is also very nice. Be aware though, that these places are quite expensive.

I'd vote for the Hilton Green Park.

How about the Metropole or the Conrad? I'm looking too. Anyone know the details?

The Hilton Park Lane has a few rooms that you can see inside Buckingham Palace.

The Hilton in Kensington is friendly toward call girls coming to your room.

Forget about the above tips! Just pulling your leg! At least one of them is, you guess which one

The conrad hilton is in the harbor, they have an excellent running map (if you want to work out), Michael Caines house (tower) can be seen from the hotel, "the furken pub" (packed with locals) is down the street.

The Paddington is my current favourite. Large rooms, friendly staff, excellent breakfast, well-equipped rooms, tube, mainline, HR Express all less than a minute away.
The Metropole gets a total thumbs down from ME for several reasons.

Hilton Park Lane is a 5 star hotel and very nice. Great views over Hyde Park and very central to Oxford Street and Knightsbridge for shopping and visiting Harrods and the West End for theatre and shows. In regards to the Hilton Mews if you contact Hilton Park Lane they will be able to give you information on them. The Hilton Metropole is quite a large hotel(almost 1000 bed rooms) and if you are coming for a holiday I would not recommend it. Hilton Kensington is in a quite area and the Hilton Olympia is located near High Street Kensington and has recently been refurbished.

If you are looking for more traditional type hotels try the Covent Garden Hotel. This is a boutique style 5 star hotel but located right in the heart of the West End. If modern and funky then there is the St Martins Lane hotel owned by Ian Schrager. Very hip and funky lots of famous people hang out there.

Sorry to go so will stop before I list every hotel in London. Hope some of this helps. Oh must mention both the Marriot Town Hall hotel and the Thistle Royal Horseguards. These are 2 of only a handfull of hotels that overlook the Thames river. Marriot a bit more modern and the Royal Horseguards more traditional. Again excellent locations espceially if you want to go onto the London Eye. Check out the web site listed as they will give you lots of info on what to do and see in London

Linda,
If you are going to use points for the Mews you better make the reservation quickly. I tried to book the Mews 8 mos in advance using my Honors points with no luck. If you are doing late spring through early fall, good luck. They hold very few rooms for Honors redemption. The day before arrival they had several rooms still available and would not release them and I have a ton of points and give Hilton a lot of business.
