I have stayed at the Capital twice, and I highly, highly recommend it. The staff are gracious and quick to rectify any possible problem, no matter how small, without excuses or any possible 'blame' on the visitor, as some hotels might. It is elegant, comfortable, quiet, charmingly decorated, and the bathrooms are luxurious. The turn down service is great, and while I didn't personally eat at the restaurant (though I heard it's wonderful), I did love the breakfast (I didn't order from the menu, but ate from the 'buffet' -- cereals, oatmeal, fresh fruit, yogurts, danish, etc) and that and the individual French presses of coffee were perfect. The hair dryer broke in my room and within a few minutes I had a new one brought to my door. It is a small hotel and they ask you to leave your keys at the desk when you leave for the day or whatever, which at first I thought a bit odd, but by doing so you quickly get to know the staff (and it is a small hotel as I mentioned, so it doesn't take long to become familiar), and this does actually make the stay nicer. And best of all, the location is FANTASTIC. It is in one of the most elite areas of London, a one minute walk from the tube, a 3 minute walk from unbelievable shopping, and if you are there on business, it truly does feel like "coming home" after a long day. I can't recommend this hotel highly enough, it is a beautiful place.
