We chose this hotel based on reasonable value in the capital but were pleased with the overall experience. A friendly welcome was a good start. We had an executive King which is about average size for the capital and it is well fitted out, if a bit soulless.Our room looked out over the Gerkin and some rooms would look out over the atrium or the Tower. The rooms have their Mac which acts as TV, computer and business centre (you can print directly to the main desk). There is fast free internet throughout. There were tea and coffee facilities, and iron and board and the room was spotless. The bed was extremley comfortable and firm although the pillows were a bit soft. The sound proofing is excellent.A small opening window allowed air to circulateThe staff at the desk were very helpful and they knew their stuff and had no language barriers. The Sky bar on floor 12 has great views over the Tower of London which is a couple of minutes walk away. The great thing about the hotel is its proximity to the Tower and London bridge. You can be at Tower Hill tube station in a few minutes or Fenchurch station. The 15 bus runs from the main road to the strand regularly or if you want to walk it is about 40 along Fleet and Canon Streets to say the Adelphi Theatre/Savoy area. You can take the tube on the northern line from Euston to Bank and then you are about 10 minutes walk away.
The ground floor executive lounge is provided soft drinks and tea and coffee all day with wine/beer and some snacks in the evening. A more limited breakfast was served here compared to the main restaurant but a quieter setting in a fairly small room.
Well done everyone.
