In over thirty years of visiting London I have never enjoyed a stay in a hotel; with so many good reviews this hotel had a lot to live up to but my expectations were not high. So what happened?
Well, our stay exceeded all expectations; this is a great place to stay and no review could do it justice.
First, the location is great for shopping in the Westfield shopping centre, you’re right in the centre itself. The entrance to the building can be difficult to spot if you are unfamiliar with the centre but the helpful concierge staff soon had us in front of the reception on the 12th floor. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful; explaining everything we needed to know about our stay.
Our suite, a king size bedroom and separate living area, was spacious and well furnished, very clean and well laid out. The room had an Apple TV attached to the large LCD TV in the living room and there was another TV in the bedroom. The bathroom was large and well laid out. This was a great place to chillout and relax. I had the best night’s sleep I have ever had in any hotel; the bed was so comfy. We stayed over the weekend so the shopping centre was busy, even late at night, but the noise level was very quiet. The Internet connection in the room was good; we did pay the extra for the faster connection and access to our Netflix and Apple Match movies via the Apple TV; this is a great add-on service.
We used the on-site pantry for soft-drinks; all items added to our account without any fuss by the helpful staff and reasonably priced. The breakfast was a surprise; all food options are covered, hot, cold, healthy and just plain indulgent! Add to this a great view over the Olympic park and a sunny day and you have the recipe for a great start to the day.
The underground station is a 5 minute walk from the suites. Central London is 30 minutes away on the underground and the Excel Centre is 15 minutes on the DLR.
The suite prices reflect the quality of the suites; I considered them reasonable for a London hotel. Check-in and -out was fast and efficient, our account was accurate.
I cannot recommend this hotel enough. It is a credit to Stratford and London. I have until now associated visits to London with being ripped off, not any more. We will be returning later in the year. Bookmark this hotel for any visit to London.
