Stayed here with my wife for valentines. We are both late 20's and design minded. Check in was painfully slow as the guy waited to log in! However was given a free cupcake and 2 drinks vouchers for the bar so all was forgiven. Also he noted that I had accidently booked a twin room so quickly changed it to a king on the 7th floor.
Very modern design which we liked. Fir those wanting a traditional style hotel stay at the savoy or ritz. If you want upto date design stay here.
Room was spacious for london. Loved the modular design of storage areas and mirrored walls every where. Apparently the light was very bad for doing makeup, not a concern of mine really...
After a show we took 4 friends back to get some cocktails. The lounge bar was packed full with no chance of a table so we went upto our room. Cocktails were very well crafted and typical london prices (£12 ish for a cocktail).
The following morning we decided on room service breakfast which was pricey but tasty.
My one reason for not awarding a full 5 stars is down to one thing. WIFI. I still find it mind blowing that when you pay £250 for a standard room there is an extortionate rate of £15+ for 24hr wifi access. Much much cheaper chain hotels offer it for free, yet Starwood hotels dont. Very easy to accidently buy the wifi as we did. Starwood change your money grabbing policies and have many more happier guests.
