Very smart and luxurious hotel about 5 minutes walk from Piccadilly Circus.
Without exception every staff member we came into contact with were friendly and welcoming, really cannot praise them enough from the reception staff to the cleaning ladies.
We had a very nice welcome on arrival and were given our room immediately despite it only being about 11am. The bedroom on the 5th floor was well appointed and spotlessly clean. As one would expect from a hotel of this standard there were the normal additions - iron/ironing board, hair dryer, flat screen tv, tea and coffe making facilities, safe etc etc. The fresh flowers in the bedroom, turn down service and free wifi throughout the hotel were most welcome.
The bathroom was a good size with a large shower cubicle - personally I would have liked a tub but that is down to me for not requesting one at the time of booking, something to bear in mind if that is a preference.
We did not eat in the hotel so cannot comment - as always in city hotels these days the breakfast was ludicrously expensive so we went to a cafe about 5 minutes walk away and had a full English breakfast for £7.99 per person. The hotel is very expensive, but the location is great, the bedroom comfortable and worth the treat.
