Hundreds of partygoers descended on the property on Park Lane -- one of central London's swankiest addresses -- and moved to the five-storey building's roof. Ambulance and fire crews were called to the scene after fears the roof could collapse under their weight and were pelted with bottles and stones by the crowd.
Police were called and Park Lane and Oxford Street were closed, meaning Courtney Love (pictured) could not leave her hotel.
A police spokesman told the BBC, "A large number - in excess of 2,000 persons - were holding some form of 'event' or 'gathering'.
"People were seen climbing on to the roof and police were concerned that the roof and structure of the building was unsafe."
He continued: "Police attended but were unable to access the building after some of the people inside and on the roof threw missiles, bricks and bottles at them.
The party is thought to have been organised on Facebook, and police are still trying to find those responsible. There is no news yet about a replacement date for Hole's show, though the band are also playing the Shephderd's Bush Empire on Wednesday Feb. 17.
