The emphasis is on the "huge". Most hotel rooms in London tend to be pokey and small (tends to go with the heritage status) and you almost expect Jeeves to pop out any moment ! However, this property has improved tremendously after a refurbishment. Rooms seem bigger and brighter (the bigger may have been an optical illusion, but I doubt it). When you can do a push up without knocking tables or banging your head, you know it is the correct size.The reception looks contemporary (with a large Paresh Maity painting, to boot) and the property looks more professional. The breakfast room also seems cheerier. My only other meal was a box lunch (I was at a conference in the hotel) about which the less said the better. Most of you will not face the same ordeal. Of course, the views are of such interesting sights as the plumbing and spiral staircases. I could write a book about British pumbing thanks to the great views from hotel rooms in the past but we will leave that for another time. I would say that this property now represents great value given its location and quality of the experience.
