“Great Hotel with Great View”
Reviewed 25 July 2012

Coming from London, England we've been a little put off by the name of this hotel(!), however the reviews have always been excellent so I decided to leave my prejudices aside and book the hotel. I'm glad that we did.

We were welcomed in a friendly understated style. We'd booked a suite with views over looking the park. The room was amazing with the sitting decoreate cool colours with a very clever coffee table when spun around and around morphs into a dinning table. The room was very clean and serviced twice daily. There was no noise from either outside (but given we were on the 26th floor not surprising) nor was there any noise from inside the hotel. The bed was to die for and made it very hard to get up in the morning - just as well jet lagged persisted otherwise we wouldn't have been rising until lunchtime.

We ate breakfast in our room everyday and the service was prompt and importantly the food was hot - so often this isn't the case with in room dining.

The hotel offers a chauffer service if the car is avaliable it will deliver you anywhere within a certain radius. We were lucky to have this service available for two nights as we wanted to travel a little further south in Manahatten for dinner.

We didn't eat in the restaurant but we had plenty of pre and post dinner drinks. The bar has a good atmosphere without it being a party venue. It was amazing to see English afternoon tea being seviced in NYC!

I loved staying and I'm sure on my next visit I'll be staying again the London - now I've got over my foibles!

I'd recommended this hotel

We spent our 25th Anniversary celebration in NYC and stayed at the London and loved everything about it! We received stellar service from Front Desk, Concierge, Bellpersons, Housekeeping and the MAZE. The hotel is in the perfect location, it is classy but not pretentious and the rooms were spacious with great views. We did alot of "hotel shopping" and took a chance on The London (not having been to NY in some 30 years) and we loved our choice.

Where do I begin. The stay was so great. The room was large beatiful and had great views of Central Park. The King sized bed was wonderful. It was covered with the finest sheets. We checked in and went up to our room and showered and changed and went out for a few hours for dinner. We returned and to our surprise the room was already cleaned. The shower was dryed and the bed fixed it was so neat. This hotel is worth a penny you spend. The room and the food was so good. I will always stay at The London when in NYC. I can't wait to stay at the London West in California.

Room Tip: The hotel in a great location a few blocks from theaters times sqaure

My wife and I celebrated my birthday there and spent 4 nights in May.

We had as usual a fantastic experience and really loved the atmosphere.
Room was spacious and very comfortable (It was our sixth stay and we were kindly upgraded to Vista Suite). Partial View on Central Park was very nice.

The staff was very friendly and always answered positively to our requests. (special thanks to front desk and especially to Sofia, the General Manager, she knows how to make you feel like at home, which is quite rare nowadays)

We used the room service and it was quick and good. Housekeeping was also helpful

According to us, the hotel location is one of the best in NYC, it is a short walk to Central Park, 5th Avenue and Broadway and when you need to go to Soho, Tribecca etc, it takes only 10/15 mins max by cab and costs 12/15 USD.

Bottom line, the London still desserves a top notch, my wife and I will definitively choose it once again for our next stay in NYC.
We also highly recommend it to everyone.

Large room by NYC standards, but DO NOT eat in the restaurant. Food service was extremely overpriced, food quality poor and definitely not 'customer service friendly'. Discussed with management and their offer to compensate for all of the problems we experienced was to comp us 'next time'.

Attentive staff, outstanding location and spacious rooms! What more could you ask for in NYC?! Will stay here again for sure!!! Enjoyed the wine glasses in the room with a nice bottle of wine that we brought. Got a complimentary ride to dinner in the hotel's SUV. Short walks to 5th ave, central park, and times square. All around outstanding!

Great location. Doubt that you'll find another hotel in NYC that's as spacious as the London. No lines at check in unlike some of the other experiences I've had in NYC. We arrived early and our room was ready! Would definitely stay there again.
