Michael Shepherd, general manager at London Hilton on Park Lane, said: “At the time of opening in April 1963,  London Hilton on Park Lane set the pace of contemporary hotel-keeping and hospitality. It became a destination and a magnet for events and celebrations. Its reputation grew as the place to be seen and set a new benchmark of service and quality.”
