I stayed at the Strand Palace for 3 nights whilst on a course with work with three colleagues. The hotel is in a fantastic location, right opposite the Savoy and is in amongst the theatres. It is also in walking distance to most attractions such as Covent Gardens, Trafalgar Square, China Town, Piccadilly Gardens, the Thames etc. There are a number of good restaurants close by if you choose not to eat at the hotel.
The hotel itself was clean and tidy, we had single rooms which were very small but had everything we required, there was a TV, tea making facilities and toiletries. The rates were quite expensive and varied extensively throughout the week starting from £100 to £170.
The breakfast was lovely, no complaints at all, we were seated quickly and when the main breakfast room was full there was a second room which is an Indian restaurant at lunch and dinner where breakfast was served. The variety was fantastic from continental to a full English served buffet style so you could help yourself. There was also plenty to drink from tea, coffee to a range of fruit juice or water.
The hotel seemed busy and had a number of bars and restaurants to choose from with access to a souvenir shop. The lobby was a good spacious area, ideal as a meeting point. The staff seemed very pleasant and friendly. As we were there on business we never used the on site facility for booking trips, theatre tickets etc but this is a good facility to have available on site.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family and for other business trips.
