6 night stay, mixing business with leisure.
1. Amazing central location - Within a 5 min walk, you can get to Victoria Station and Buckingham Palace. From Victoria Station, you can take the Underground/Tube anywhere in the city. Within a 10 min walk, you can get to The Mall (and from there leisurely stroll to Trafalgar Square) and St. James Park. Within a 15 min walk, you can get to Westminster Abbey and Hyde Park...and so much more.
2. Excellent service - Upon arrival, we had a small box of homemade biscuits as a welcome gift for our stay. Additionally, throughout our stay, the hotel staff was attentive, welcoming, and helpful. Post-trip, we received a complimentary subscription to the Travel+Leisure magazine. These small gestures that focused on the customer experience really made our stay a memorable one.
3. Fitness oriented - For the athletic minded traveler, this hotel offers a unique experience where you can arrange someone on staff to work out with you. For example, isn't it hard to play tennis by yourself? I didn't take advantage of this, but thought it was amazing. I did, however, take advantage of the fitness center. The hotel provides complimentary day passes to the LA Fitness gym, which also has a pool, located around the corner (2 min away).
Construction work - There is construction nearby for a new building complex and general road work. This caused minor inconveniences with some car and pedestrian congestion during the day, but did not affect sleep quality at night or in the mornings.
Would I stay here again? Absolutely. The location, service, and overall experience was so positive that it far outweighed the minor foot traffic. I get more foot traffic walking to dinner in my 'hood. ;)
