We travel to London at least once a year and try to stay in different Starwood hotels each time just to try them out. This hotel opened about 6 months ago and is right in the center of Leicester Square. I agree with other reviewers in that if you are looking for old world charm England, this is not the hotel for you. A doorman sort of greets you at the door and you walk into a bank of elevators to take you to the first floor where the desks are, bar/club and concierge. The staff at the desks are very friendly, helping us with theater suggestions and any other inquires we had. As others stated, the halls are very dark, club like, but quiet. As my husband is a Gold Member, we were upgraded to the fourth floor. Others complain of noise, we didn't hear any on our floor. Bar/lounge on the first. Room was comfortable, the sink is in the middle of the room which wasn't too bad except the bowl was too shallow and water splashed on the floor which then gets trampled on and it is dirty. I never wear the slippers in a hotel but did use them here as the floor isn't mopped daily or at all while we were there (4 days). The shower is great and the bed comfortable. Bar is packed even on a Monday night. Lots of 30 somethings, girls/guys having a night out. Loud and noisy. If this is your scene then it is perfect. Glad we tried it but think we'll head back to the hotels with "the old world charm" such as Le Meriden on Picadilly.
