We had previous used this Hotel some years ago,if I recall there was some exam stress at home and a couple of days away were the prefect antidote. As we are infrequent visitors to London, it was a simple decision to select a hotel we had used previously. Located a couple of minutes walk from Euston Road and Great Portland Street tube station, it a reasonable choice to access London's transport network.
We spent two night here in a level room, there was a lounge for "level" guests where breakfast, refreshments and early evening drinks could be taken. All of which were included in the room rate. I do concur with others reviewers, there was an element of crocodile service, it was a tad snappy mostly during breakfast. Otherwise we never really experienced any issues.
The lift system did take some getting used to, the look of bemusement on some customer's faces did bring a wrye smile, I did get frustrated myself!
The room was comfortable and well appointed with a King sized bed, I can't get exicted about hotel rooms, as the room was on a higher floor, there was a decent view of the London skyline.
We did use the restaurant during our stay,I'll review seperately, there was also a bar with a pianist which offered a table drinks service and a service charge. I really get the hump when drinks cost the earth and they have the nerve to charge for service, rant over. I could vote with my feet.
We enjoyed a pleasant stay, with only minor niggles and as we have stayed here a couple of times,albeit some years apart. The White House is a comfortable choice.
