The hotel is on Piccadilly opposite Green Park, a few doors down from Hard Rock cafe, so right by everything. The entrance was as grand as you'd expect, and staff very attentive.
The room was great, lovely bed, came with a Bose iPod dock and all kinds of fancy lighting.
One really nice touch was the mini bar which was very well stocked with quality drinks and snacks was complimentary (apart from alcoholic), We stayed in a deluxe room.
We ate in the restaurant in the evening which was really nice, the food was excellent and the ambience was great, reasonable price for a set meal at around £80 + tip for two.
Breakfast was quite expensive at £30 each, and not being a big eater, they were happy to recommend some local cafe's as an alternative, the staff were really pleasant.
Stayed last time in the Hilton, which was okay, but this is so much nicer. Didn't make much use of the facilities whilst we were their as it was for Christmas shopping.
Highly recommended, and will definitely book again when going to London.
