This hotel is ideally located for Theatreland. We booked a single and a double. Both rooms were very warm but we found a fan in the wardrobe in each room that helped to circulate the air and cool us down. There was not much difference in size between the single room and the double and it would have been nice if a chair had been provided in the double! We worried that it might be noisy, but with both windows flung wide open to increase the air circulation, we were surprised at how quiet it was overnight. (We were on the 7th floor which might have hekped alleviate traffic noise.) After seeing Warhorse we returned to the hotel at approximately 10:45 pm. We ordered a meal in the lounge bar - very helpful staff but an incredibly long wait for the food to arrive. It was nearly midnight by the time it had arrived and we had eaten.
Breakfast was superb - a very good choice of food at the buffet. Fast service with tea and coffee and plates were cleared efficiently. Our stay was just before the Olympic Opening Ceremony and there were quite a number of Olympic athletes from various countries staying at the hotel - staff coped with their varying dietary demands very well. We used the Concierge service to get information - they could not do enough to help us out.
Overall our impression was very good - rooms were a bit on the small side and potentially airless, all of the staff were extremely helpful and the location was excellent. A bit pricey for what was actually offered, but I would hapily recommend this hotel to a friend.
