The Washington Mayfair is situated in an upscale area of London on a relatively quiet street. It is situated three minutes from the Green Park and underground. On the way to or from the underground station stop at Pret A Manger for a light breakfast, lunch or snack. The hotel is also three minutes from Berkley Square and another five to six minutes from Oxford Street. It is within walking distance to Buckingham Palace, St.James Park and other tourist destinations. Pubs and restaurants are close by at Shepard's Market about five minutes away.
At the hotel there is a doorman who might greet you. Being an American I am always accustomed to congeniality. However, the desk clerk will bid you welcome and assist you with any requests such as storing your luggage if your room isn't ready. (They did not let me check in until the appointed time.) My room was a classic double that was well appointed - clean, neat and spacious - much larger than rooms in New York. There was a balcony which I did not use as the hotel was conducting renovations on the seventh floor. The bathroom was spotless with lit cubicles for towels and toiletries which were replenished daily. I loved the towel warmer and the low flat sink which were great for washing clothes and drying them. The shower pressure and temperature were perfect. If there was a negative I would have to say that the bed was too firm for my taste but at the end of a busy sightseeing/shopping day I was glad to fall into it. All in all, I am looking forward to staying here on my next visit.
