We were originally booked in the sister hotel, London City Suites, directly across the street. When the air conditioning in our room gave out to the unseasonably hot week in London, they upgraded us to an even nicer room at the Montcalm and offered us a complimentary bottle of wine and breakfast. The decor and amenities are nearly identical in the Montcalm at the Brewery, but the Montcalm rooms seemed a bit larger. The service here was excellent. The concierge, Adrian, helped us with every question we had about the hotel, London, the Tube, etc, arranged a cab back to the airport and was just a great conversationalist with a wonderful sense of humor. I can't imagine a better person to be out front for a hotel or restaurant. The manager, I believe her name was Sabine, came out and checked up on us the morning after we had to switch rooms and was very sweet and genuine. The Wi-Fi in this hotel was AMAZINGLY FAST, did not require a password, and provided a quick connection even when outside. This is no small detail since your trip may include researching maps, routes, restaurants and attractions. Surprisingly, the majority of hotels fail miserably with Wi-Fi service, either with clunky access, speed, spotty access in rooms or combination of all 3. The beds were incredibly comfortable, the desk offered UK and US (120V) outlets, a USB charging outlet and an HDMI port if you want to connect your camera/camcorder to the nice LCD TV. The only odd thing about the room (and this appears to be a common thing in London) is that the glass door on the tub/shower only extends about 60% of the way across the tub, so it can make for a drafty shower and the water can shoot out of the tub if you are not careful when turning on the spray head. This is a puzzling design, but a minor issue considering the quality of the room overall. The location of this hotel was nice in Central London, with a very short walk right down Chiswell Street to the Barbican Underground Station. Moorgate is equally as close in the opposite direction. It's also near St Paul's Cathedral and the Museum of London. We were dropping off our son for the Guildhall School of Music & Drama summer program, which is immediately next door to the hotel, as well as for a combined family vacation. We will definitely return to this excellent hotel and staff. Oh, and did I mention Adrian was awesome? Give that guy a raise! Hope to see him again someday.
