The reception has a little lounge leading off it where you can have afternoon tea. When I arrived there was a harpist playing. The décor is light and airy. The receptionist was charming. We got a a corner room (a bit bigger) and it was spacious and beautifully decorated. The bed had a quite firm mattress with a feather mattress topper - I thought it was a bit too firm for me, but I was wrong, and we had one of the best nights sleep I have ever had in a hotel. The windows are triple glazed but can be opened a bit which was welcome as the room was a bit too warm otherwise. the bathroom was nice, if compact, with Hermes toiletries, and bathrobes. The soundproofing was excellent, the room was silent. The location is great, just 2 minutes to Piccadilly. We didn't try the food and beverage services as there are literally hundreds of eating options within about 200M of the hotel.
A measure of how good this hotel was is that the very worst thing I could say is that the in room iron wasn't very good.
