Stayed at this hotel a few times in the last few years but most recently in April 2012. We chose to stay here again as the location is so great; close to Marble Arch tube, steps away from a stroll in the park, near a bunch of fabulous restaurants, and within walking distance to Knightsbridge. For the first time traveller, this hotel offers the great perk of being near one of the many stops of the "Open Air Bus" that circles London giving tourists a view of the city/drops off at popular destinations such as Tower of London, Houses of Parliament, etc.
We explored around the area one day and found an AMAZING Italian restaurant which was family run and delicious. There were also multiple pubs, a deli, a few cafes, and high end shopping a minutes walk from the back entrance of the hotel. Simply walk out by the taxi stand and hang a left and explore.
This is the first time we ate at the hotel and the breakfast was fabulous. The service in the restaurant was fabulous and the true English meets Marriott buffet filled us up well into the day. Our room rate included the breakfast which is the way to go. Ala carte meals seemed to be quite expensive.
The rooms were very spacious. My mom and I travelled there recently and had no trouble getting the 2 twin beds as requested. The room was quite large which was great for a multiple day stay. While it will probably go through an update in a few years, we found the room to be very nice and "traditional English" which excited my mom as she loves that style. Bathroom was a bit dated but it was clean and well kept. The only complaint was the shower the first evening but we alerted the staff and they were quick to take care of it the next day.
Overall, we had another great stay at the Grosvenor House.
