Hotel Features. The Park Plaza Sherlock Holmes London occupies a traditional Victorian townhouse. The lobby displays subtle references to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous sleuth, Sherlock Holmes, and creates a warm environment with a fireplace, partially exposed wooden floorboards, and broad, deep-brown leather armchairs. Sherlock's Grill invites comfort with intimate alcoves and an open fire. The restaurant serves modern European cuisine prepared in a mesquite wood-fired oven. Fresh bread is baked in house, and the chef uses only organic ingredients. The Executive Lounge exudes private-club atmosphere, serves snacks and boasts a popular tapas menu. Wireless Internet access is available throughout the hotel for a fee. The 24-hour health club houses a sauna, a steam room, free weights, and cardiovascular and strength-training equipment. Serenity therapists offer aroma therapy. In-room beauty treatments are available upon request.

The money-saving Oyster Card is a smartcard that stores up to 90 pounds of pay-as-you-go credit. It can be used on the Tubes, buses, DLR, trams and select national rail services throughout London. Oyster Cards are less expensive than single fares, and daily price capping automatically calculates the least expensive fare for single-day journeys. Oyster Cards can be purchased at the Oyster website, most Tube station ticket offices, at Oyster Ticket Stops, at select National Rail ticket offices, at select London Travel Information Centres, and by telephone at 0845 330 9876.
