Booked a double room including breakfast during the Hilton 'flash sale' and got a great rate. Arrived at the hotel to be greeted by very friendly front of house staff and a warm 'welcome cookie'! As I was staying with my daughter, the gentleman on reception offered us a twin room which was not available when I booked but much better for us. The reception area was large and bright with plenty of comfortable seating. Wi-Fi was not included in the rate for the room but was available FOC in the bar area. We left our bags with the concierge as the room wasn't available until 1500. When we returned to the hotel at around 2130 we were offered another warm cookie whilst our keys were processed (my daughter loved this!) the twin room was spacious, bright, clean and modern with windows that opened. It had everything we needed with comfortable beds, quilts and cushions, a room safe, iron/ironing board, hairdryer, (lit) desk with power points, (interior lit) wardrobe, TV and separate heating unit as the wall control was not working. The bathroom was quite small but had thick, fresh towels and toiletries. Even though our view was over an interior courtyard, the hotel had tried to make it a little more appealing by adding a fake grass effect to the surfaces and large potted plants. Our server at breakfast was very helpful and extremely smiley, infact all the staff we came across were happy and helpful There was a good hot breakfast buffet with an 'omelette chef' and also fresh fruit, cereals, breads, cheeses, cold meats etc.
The hotel was a good 10 minute walk to Tottenham Court Rd or Covent Garden.
I would definitely use it again.
