We got off to a bad start as there was no room available in "our class" until 4:00 pm.
Apparently we were starwood not so preferred guests as we did not have gold or preferred status.
They didn't suggest a place to wait. The first hotel lounge that we attempted to enter turned us away. Again above our class.
The room was reminiscent of a Manhatten hotel room, cramped with no dresser or adequate closet space, but overall acceptable for an old building.
The fitness center was first rate and we were not charged extra for it.
The included buffet breakfast was good, but the service spotty.
The internet was not free, again because even though I'm a starwood preferred guest, I don't have sufficient preferred status.
The location was very good. It was close to the tube and within walking distance of many attractions, restaurants, and pubs.
When asked, the staff was very helpful.
Bottom line, I think I'll try something outside of the SPG program next time.
