I have become a Marriott fan in the last two years but never stayed in an Autograph Collection before (their quirky brand).
As a first, I was truly impressed. The hotel lobby is impressive and I think, since it's in the heart of London City, this location used to be a bank (it kind of looks like one)
It's a 3 minute walk to Bank tube station (Central line) and it is in an extremely quiet area.
The food was nice - try their club sandwich.
Also, this has been the hotel with the most TV Channels I've ever seen - in excess of 120!
What I wasn't impressed with were:
1. The breakfast (I had the smallest and tasteless omelette ever) and the breakfast staff assumed that I didn't need a teaspoon for my coffee!!! I then asked for a pot of hot water (I had my own herbal tea) and the waitress brought me Breakfast tea!
2. The hallways (leading to the rooms) could do with a fresh paint and a change of carpet
3. The air conditioning system is not the best I'd had - for someone coming from the North of Scotland, some rooms can be really hot! So, it's been on constantly since we arrived but it just can't cope very well
If you can live with these, then it's really worth staying there
