London’s Best Hotels | Metropolitan by COMO

The Effective Event Solutions team work with some of London’s best hotels to ensure our clients are getting the best venues, best service and best value for money.

Metropolitan by COMO has an enviable location on London’s luxury Park Lane and boasts 144 rooms and suites as well as long stay apartments. What makes the hotel different from the other luxury properties in the city’s famous Mayfair area, is it’s attention to detail and undeniably chic, contemporary design.

This summer the hotel will be ‘reborn’ after a significant renovation, including bright and airy new bedroom designs (pictured). Originally opened in 1997 the hotel was one of the first in the UK’s capital to embrace contemporary design. The philosophy was to strip back the non-essential elements of a traditional English Hotel to create something cool but accessible, sophisticated and warm, which they certainly achieved!

Working with Linzi Coppick of Forme Partnership the Metrolpolitan by COMO has revitalised the internal spaces with fresh palettes of natural hues and textures to compliment the neighbouring Hyde Park, whilst retaining the timeless soul and ethos of the Metropolitan by COMO.

The wonderful new bedrooms will feature bespoke king-size beds with luxurious 400-thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, complimentary WiFi, Loewe interactive TVs with extensive on-demand music and over 70 channels, Nespresso machines and relaxing rainfall showers.

With floor to ceiling windows offering views of Hyde Park or Mayfair and international multi-region plug sockets, the hotel is set to impressive the most discerning travellers. Which is perfect for high end groups and VIP meetings and events.

Meeting space at Metropolitan by COMO can seat up to 80. After a successful day in the boardroom your guests can network in the Met Bar which is open until 2am with DJ’s playing every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, making this one of London’s best hotels.

And if you have any spare time between meetings, the dedicated yoga channels in every room or the COMO Shambhala Urban Escape will ease away your stresses!

Do you need new ways to motivate staff?

Incentive Travel is a proven way of motivating staff, whether you run a short challenge to hit targets or an annual reward for high achievers, it is a great way to keep a team on track.

Last month one of our experienced Travel Hostesses led a wonderful trip to Berlin, Germany. The group were all winners of an incentive having hit (and exceeded in many cases!) their company sales targets.

Effective Travel Solutions put together a bespoke itinerary based on the attendee profiles to ensure each and every winner would enjoy themselves. We provide great rates on group air travel and our packages can include everything from the first coffee at airport check-in to the last celebratory pint in departures on the return journey.

Why chose Berlin? Since the fall of the Berlin wall the city has cultivated a diverse multicultural population, with experimental creativity living in harmony with its many historic sites of interest.

For this particular group, we created a bespoke schedule to include a tantalising overview to this intriguing city. Using the wonderful Grand Hyatt Berlin hotel as our base for the weekend-long trip, guests were able to take time out and relax in the rooftop pool, as well as enjoying late night live music in the intimate hotel bar.

Once everyone had settled in (and sampled their first traditional German beers with lunch) our local guide Hans-Georg took the group on a private walking tour, taking in some of the city’s major sites including the Brandenburg Gate, Sony Centre and remnants of the original Berlin wall. Effective Travel Solutions selects tour guides with care to ensure the highest quality and Hans-Georg, having lived through the construction and fall of the Berlin wall is able to provide a fascinating personal insight.

Visible from across the city The Fernsehturm (a 1960s TV tower) is a fanstastic option for groups. With VIP entry to beat the queues (the tower only has two relatively small lifts to whisk you up 207m!) we took this group for a deluxe dinner in the revolving restaurant within this iconic building. Fine food and incredible views of a city that never sleeps were the perfect way to end the trip.

If you think you need new ways to motivate staff then talk to us for guidance and bespoke proposals guaranteed to impress!

We can also provide travel & accommodation packages to accompany hospitality at international events such as a Grand Prix.

Why our London event agency can offer a better service.

Why our London event agency delivers the service you have been looking for.

Effective Event Solutions has over 19 years of experience at management level in the event management, hospitality, conference and incentive agency industry in London. During this time our London event agency has built up a philosophy of designing specific programmes to fit individual client requirements, in terms of budget, content and type of event most suitable, to satisfy a wide range of different objectives. This approach has resulted in our London agency providing many successful events for clients both large and small. Our expertise lies both with knowledge built up over the past nineteen years and the individual suppliers with whom we work.

Resources and manpower for your project

One of the directors from our event agency in London will personally supervise the project with the back-up of one or more members of the sales support/operations team on a day-to-day basis. In terms of resource and manpower for implementing the project we work with professionals in their varying fields who can provide a creative and cost effective solution to each element of the event. For example Audio Visual, Lighting, Special effects, Sound, Theming and Decoration, Choreography for cabaret/dancers, tent organisation, food and beverage co-ordination, accommodation, staging and set design, post conference entertainment and full support facilities. The amount of time spent on a project of this nature to ensure an effective memorable event is considerable. The benefit of using an event agency such as us, is above all, to free up your time to concentrate on other areas relating to the event rather than the time consuming organisational aspects which we can solely focus on.


Our flexibility in the kitchen provides a wide range of tastes to tickle the palate, sourcing the best ingredients from across the globe whether it be a luxury barbecue, a sumptuous dinner feast, traditional black tie tasting menu or a picnic in the woods for the kids. Our range of chefs would be delighted to cater for any specific tastes you might have, and during the planning process we often offer to prepare a tasting to assist in deciding on your final menu. Integral to the success of the party are the carefully selected personnel and professionalism of our experienced staff, from chefs, silver service waiting and flair bar staff through to cloakroom and security.
