We were in London overnight for a Theatre/Hotel package. This hotel is well decorated in the usual contemporary style of such chains.
Our room was small which was no surprise but extremely comfortable in terms of the bedding. One of the most comfortabel mattresses I ever slept on and pillows as well. No noise problems at all and the bathroom was scrupulously clean with a good shower. No view from our particular room but as it was just an overnight stay it was of little consequence.
The dinner was not fabulous but good enough and the waiter most attentive and pleasant. The atmosphere was charming. Morning breakfast was better then many hotels I have stayed at and good service.
The concierge was helpful and pleasant. getting us a cab quickly for the theatre as was front of desk in general. And this central location is great for travel and some local attractions such as the British Museum and Covent Garden. Even the Tower of London and madame Tussauds both are just a couple of miles away.
I was surprised to be asked for my passport number upon checking in but I think it's all heightened security with the Olympics a week away.
