Before I launch into the review I must state that I'm a tier member with Hilton Honors so I do get some perks, ie free Internet , breakfast included etc. I have never understood why any hotel chain charges for wifi.
The hotels location has to be the best I've come across in any city I've been to so far, cultural attractions abound and transport options are plenty. I caught the Heathrow express from terminal 5, return ticket and taxi to the hotel. The taxi altered between $13 pound there and $ 17 back to Paddington.
I arrived early in the morning and Pierre had me checked in straight away, I was expecting to wait until after lunch so this was incredible bit of service, thank you Pierre! My first room for 3 days was on the 4th floor, king deluxe, very clean and spacious , even for a solo traveler with 3 cases.
My last 3 days were spent in the De Lacy suite on the 5th floor. A lovely arrangement of bedroom and separate small living area with comfortable couch / tv etc. The only fault with the latter was that I couldn't get wifi in the bedroom, I had to keep going to the living room.
In both rooms I had no noise issues - apart from emergency vehicles which one should expect living so central, not even any noise from the Vista Bar.
With the Vista bar, be aware that it can be booked out so it is not always available, sensational views and great for chilling, Mark was standout in his service and style, appeared to have a great rapport with all his customers.
On checkout Tim was a great help, overall it was incredible stay, I was very fortunate and grateful to all the Trafalgar staff, especially those behind the scenes. Cheers,
NB - Please find an extra hook for towels to hung up, did find this tad annoying.
