Stayed at The Montcalm at the Brewery for 6 nights and just loved it. Describing the staff as attentive is an understatement. They were always friendly with a smile, a hello and you were never looking for assistance as there was always someone on hand.
Rooms in London are typically small and The Montcalm wasn't much of an exception, but the rooms we had were stellar nonetheless. Well appointed and very quiet. The only downside, from a room standpoint, that I can recall was figuring out what light switch controlled what lights. Honestly, I would have believed they even changed over time.
Beds were comfortable and towels/linens were excellent.
I liked the push button security feature that put a signal outside for do not disturb and housekeeping. Not having to worry about putting a flyer on the door was nice.
At the end of the rather long days (especially suffering from jet lag), it was really nice to enter the room in the evening with the tv tuned to classical music, some fresh fruit placed out and hotel slippers placed out should I want them (I didn't really, but it was a nice touch).
Wifi was complementary and gave me no issues. Didn't even require passcodes, which is easiest of all. (Maybe that's a bad thing?)
Room service was timely and the food was decent. But why do that when London has so many great restaurants to discover? The nearest tube station was Moorsgate, only a few blocks away.
Can't wait to stay there again next year.
