After being at our Nephews lunchtime wedding, we decided to spend a night in the city. We have never stayed at "The Windsor" and heard mixed opinions. I have to admit, I was a little disappointed. Admittedly, there were obviously more expensive rooms than ours, but it was not cheap. Our room was small! The fridge was very, very noisy and I did not have a good nights sleep. They had a pillow menu which was really good as I have neck/back problems. Rate included full breakfast. We were there early, so not many tables occupied. Had to ask for coffee refill with only 3 tables occupied. The airline crew who then joined the dining room need a manner check. Burping loudly in a dining room - nee "The Windsor" - is not on. It stopped all in their tracks! Overall, old historic hotel which was only average. Nice, but not "wow" factor.
