We chose the Athenaeum for its family-friendly reputation and great location. For our daughter and her family (two boys ages 6 and 8), we wanted two connecting rooms guaranteed, with my wife's and mine nearby. Our three rooms were perfect, spacious and bright, overlooking quiet Down Street.
Upon confirming the reservation, we received a cheery e-mail from the "children's concierge", asking about the boys' interests and preferences. Included with their welcome packets were birdseed, a kite and a Frisbee, all enjoyed in Green Park just across the street.
Service and staff were all very friendly and helpful and good at remembering our names.
As noted by other reviewers, the only off-note was the GBP22 cost of breakfast at the hotel. We chose instead to start the day at one of the numerous small cafes in Shepherd Market, just a five-minute walk up behind the hotel.
