I have actually walked past this place many times without even noticing it existed, as I love Grenson shoes and am a watch fanatic, so two of my favourite shops adjoin it, and the subtlety of it's location (on Liverpool Street right next to the station) is mirrored in it's overall disposition. However, don't let that put you off, because it is also superb in almost every way.
On arriving you are greeted by the concierge who instructs you that there is no check-in desk, so a member of staff brandishing an Ipad to take your details will be with you shortly. I arrived early and was told my room wasn't ready and I would be emailed when it was. So I returned after a trip to the Shard and some exhaustive Oxford St retail therapy for my girlfriends birthday.
On returning we were offered a glass of wine which was gleefully accepted. Check-in was thorough but not too painstaking. Coffee making facilities and snacks are at the reception area and open for use, I think 24 hour.
The room was nice. Not particularly big but well furnished. Bed wasn't the comfiest and no iron in the room, but this arrived very quickly after a phone call, and shortly after a call back checking we were happy and asking if we needed anything else. After an evening out we came back and the member of staff that checked us in had left us a small gift, knowing it was my girlfriends birthday, which was a nice touch that is typical of this hotel.
We used the spa facilities which are small - a small steam room with some treatments available.
Breakfast was pretty good actually. A nice selection.
Overall I would stay here again. We had a good deal through lastminute.com, but it was still very good regardless.
