I stayed here for one night as I was attending a special event in London. There is no mistaking the feeling of history as your black cab sweeps up to the impressive entrance and the doorman is there to welcome you.
The lobby is light and airy and it's worth reading up about the history on the hotel website and taking a moment to look around. Check-in was trouble-free , I had booked a Barlow King room in the new part of the hotel. It was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Thick heavy curtains kept every bit of light out so set an alarm if you need to catch a train ! I would of loved to have stayed in one of the original bedrooms but they were a bit out of my price range.
The Booking Office Bar is great for a few drinks and had a mix of hotel guests , tourists and business men / women . It also has an interesting drinks menu with some Victorian recipes !
It is expensive to stay here but definitely worth the extra money. So often in London you pay over £200 for a sub standard hotel , so if it's a special occasion and you are looking for an experience not just a hotel and you don't want to risk disappointment I'd book in here.
