A good hotel, that could be excellent. Staff tried enormously to help. Butlers and concierge were excellent throughout. I was on business and had my children with me. I got frustrated with a shower that went from hot to cold and was cramped over the bath. There should have been a separate shower in such a hotel. DVD that did not work and they could not get working, The suite was large, clean and well appointed. It is advertised as with a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is only a washing machine that almost tumble dries. Could never get washing droperly dry which was difficult having clothes over the beds and furniture to dry. Staff tried to help for example by doing the tumble drying in the hotel machine (when I needed), but this was a hassle that should not have been there. Hotel went extra mile by storing luggage while I went through Europe., etc. Basically good hotel, great people, if a proper shower, and tumble drier as advertised, would have excellent. Mattress could have been better - not up to Starwoods heavenly beds standards. This hotel, is good but not yet in the true "Taj" league. The closest tube station is a shortish walk, but not the most covenient tube station for the West End etc. I would stay there again as staff and attitude make up for most of the small deficiencies.
