We stayed at this hotel for 1 night while attending the Iron Maiden concert in the O2. The hotel is really modern and the bedrooms are fantastic. The only problem we had was with the food. We arrived at the bar around 5pm and took a quick look at the menu, only to find no steak, burgers, chicken (except for thai green curry) on it. Asked waiter about this only to be told that we could only order from this menus even though steak etc could be got through room service. Anyway we opted for barbeque which they were holding from 6pm as when we enquired about eating in restaurant we were told it wasn't opening until September. Lo and behold 5 mins after getting our food from barbeque table alongside us were served with burger and wedges!!!! Thought they were not on menu. Anyway after concert we returned to bar and again asked if it was possible to get some food. Again shown a page with sandwiches/dimsum and told that this was all that was available which we thought ok as it was 11pm. Again our food was served and 2 tables in our view were brought burgers/chips.
Would stay here again if we were going to the O2 for convenience but defintely hope that the food situation improves as it really spoilt our stay here.
