To use the proper British expression, this hotel is "lovely" in every way! It is luxurious but NOT snobby, and everything about it, from its lobby to its rooms to its restaurants to its many public areas, simply says 'Good English Taste.'
And then there's its location, approx. 10 minutes walk to Marble Arch (from where the Hop-On/Hop-Off buses depart and a major Underground stop) and, of course, the rest of Hyde Park, as well as Oxford Street, the wonderful 'high' (shopping) street, etc.
And then there's Mayfair, its absolutely lovely surrounding neighborhood infused with upper-class classiness, and a wonderful place for a stroll if you have the time (actually unlikely in such a wonderful so-many-things-to-do city as London).
Among the Grosvenor House's many amenities are its restaurants, ranging from an American-style steakhhouse to a charming coffee bar to two delightful bar/lounge areas. Our room was spacious enough that we had no trouble storing my electric mobility scooter without having to fold it up. The bathroom (okay, loo) was also spacious, clean, and modern.
Bottom line: this is a delightful-and-historic hotel and represents everything this anglophilic American seeking to experience British good taste could ask.
