We booked this hotel as part of an Expedia package. The usual price is about $600 per night and with the Expedia package it was less than $400 per night. The location is fabulous. The Bond Street underground is right across the street. Two blocks down and one block over is St. Christopher's Place, a pedestrian area with small unique shops, several pubs, and many reasonably priced restaurants serving great food. The hotel itself was very clean and the room was larger than others I've stayed at in Europe. We paid extra for a King bed. The room had a sofa, large screen TV, plenty of closet space and two windows. As mentioned by others, there is construction going on next to the hotel on a department store. We faced the construction and one night a rivets were being installed with an electric screw driver but we got used to it and pretty soon it was background noise. Next night some kind of swinging door was banging all night but if you shut the windows and pull the curtains it's not that bad. Since our room was prepaid for 7 nights, we didn't want to leave. The other 5 nights were very quiet and we slept fine. The store that is being constructed is scheduled to be open in Winter 2013 so the construction should be done soon. The breakfast was good but I thought 19 pounds was a little high priced so we went to a restaurant in St. Christopher's Place one day and the cost was about the same for coffee, 1 poached egg on 1/2 of an English muffin and my husband had 2 poached eggs on a whole English muffin plus toast and the cost was the same, so you aren't saving money by going out but we enjoyed the morning walk. The water pressure and temperature was very good and the bathroom had a large vanity with quality toiletries. Oxford St. is a great street to stroll on - many high end stores (don't buy anything, they are all in the US at 1/2 the price) and a great atmosphere. The hotel staff went out of their way to be helpful and were all very courteous and friendly. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are in London on vacation.
