I seem to be on a mission these days to try every IHG property in the area and following the disappearance of the Crowne Plaza in St-James's Park, I tried many. I think I finally found the one.
First of all, it's literally one minute from Paddington station, so coming and leaving with the Heathrow Express, this is a great location. While the hotel is not brand new, it's still very recent and modern. Pleasant on the eyes. The only thing that didn't make sense is the lack of power outlets by the beds, but at the same time, all the freebies (sparkling water, crisps, even some champagne one night!) in the room sort of make up for it.
I also have to commend the staff. While they still seem to be learning the ropes, they are incredibly willing to assist, with a genuine smile to booth. One tip to the team: make sure you inform your elite customers when they get a room upgrade.
Oh and one big surprise. Their free wi-fi is the fastest I have seen in all IHG hotels around the world. While the others like to throttle it and charge a premium for faster internet, this one just gives it all. That, to me, is probably the key argument why I will be back.
