Was booked here by my travel agent because it was one of my firm's "preferred" hotels and I was trying to find something not over-priced. What a great surprise.
Good location a few steps away from Buckingham Palace. I walked to all my busines meetings.
The staff was so friendly they nearly swarmed my taxi to take my luggage and get me checked in. They upgraded my room to a one bedroom suite that seemed more of a serviced apartment. There was even a clothes washer/dryer in the large, FULL and fully equipped kitchen.
Modern, clean space. Two closets. Big comfy bed. Very nice, large bathroom. Sort of a dull little living room, but hey, I wasn't expecting a living room in the first place.
Breakfast was included. This was a full English breakfast served in a cozy "library" type room.
The hotel is arranged around a courtyard, back behind the Crown Plaza hotel.
