The Sumner has a lot of potential, but our stay there was not what we expected. Upon checking into our room, my fiancee found hair on one of the bath towels. Not just a few, but multiple hairs of different lengths & colors indicating they came from multiple people. The other towels appeared to be fine. The wastebasket in the bathroom is tiny and operated by a foot-pedal. Every time I pressed the foot-pedal to open the lid it would tip over. The age of the building is somewhat charming, but the wooden floors creak with every step and if you're a light sleeper, you'll hear every step your neighbors take as well. A very noisy family with kids was put in the room across the hall from us and disturbed a lot of the other guests. The children were running up and down the stairs and every morning would play in the hall right in front of our door. I'm surprised the staff didn't step in to tell them to keep it down. The breakfast was good, but the same everyday. For longer stays, you wish there was more variety. The wi-fi in the room would go in and out all the time so we often went down to use the lobby computer. Aside from all this, it is a very quaint hotel in a good location. The staff was nice, but I would definitely consider other options next time I visit London.
