This hotel needs work. The rooms are ok but not could be much nicer. The lifts are a joke. Stay on the top floor and you may as well walk down as it is so much faster. The staff are ok but many have an air of arrogance about them - not sure why! The breakfast host particularly was just... More

Last orders are at 10pm and the bar closes at 10.30pm, however we do have another outlet called the May Fair... More

We got a good deal for our overnight stay here. We only live an hour away but it is still shocking what the normal room rate does not get you in Central London! Anyway, can't fault the location of this hotel. So many wonderful historical sites within easy reach, the most amazing restaurants, shops. What's not to like! Lobby of... More

Everything was perfect including the breakfast. Perfect location for fantastic walking distance restaurants, Langans and Dover Street wine bar.T Comfortable bed. The room was clean and tidy and quiet plush. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. A bit expensive for the purpose of an overnight stay but hey you get what you pay for! Beware the mini bar bill?... More

Very welcoming reception staff made check-in very smooth. Room was a good size with comfortable beds lovely decor. There was no bath but a double shower... More

I held an event here for 150 people - and I was blown away by the quality of service, the incredible facilities and the overall uber-sophistication of the hotel. Perfectly cool location, and if you're thinking of staying here, or at the Ritz (1 minute walk away) definately go for The May Fair. Hands down winner.
