We actually live a few miles away and as our bathroom renovations had rendered the house a total mess we decided to splurge and stay a Saturday night.
Great staff - friendly, very natural, asked what we were doing in the evening etc
Checkin was smooth - they add £100 onto your credit card to cover any expenses. I'm not this is strictly necessary but that's their policy - just an FYI.
Rooms (we had a deluxe in pale wood) was lovely - like a very modern ski-chalet. Brilliantly simple TV system with a lot of channels - about 80 - every news channel imaginable was catered for.
The neighbourhood is surprisingly quiet given it's proximity to Oxford Street/SoHo - we didn't hear a thing at night as (i) Berners Street is pretty quiet and (ii) the internal glazing is excellent.
The shower in the bathroom was superb - the bathroom is a tiled wet room but with a separate shower area at the end - very cool.
The bed could have been a little bigger but nothing to grunble about.
The mini-bar was very decadent and had the best nibbles I've seen in a hotel - the beer brewed fro the hotel is a great "drop".
My only critiscism was the quality of the food at breakfast - not the best (pastries very dry, black pudding barely cooked etc). The room itself is very grand in the classical/modern style and again, service was top notch.
A very good new hotel in London at reasonable prices - Stylish with great staff.
If I was visting London from out of town or overseas this part of town feels a lot more "normal" than Park Lane, Marble Arch etc whilst still being bang in the centre of all the action - and as such it would be a great place to stay.
