Just returned from a weekend break in London with my better half to celebrate her birthday. All I can say is that the complete experience was first class. Just as you'd expect from a top London Hotel. I was in contact with the head of concierge before our stay (Stefano Trovo) He was so accommodating to my needs. He sent me numerous emails on request detailing limo hire, restaurants, where to park etc. When we arrived we were greeted with smiling, friendly, helpful staff. We had been given a free upgrade to a suite which was apparently one of their best rooms. Our room was not quite ready so we were treated to complementary green tea with silver service. Luggage was already delivered and unpacked in our rooms by the time we were shown in. The room was superb, very stylish, very modern, and very comfortable. Everything you could ever need was provided. From 40" Sony Bravia to slippers & bathrobe. All mod cons, air con, digitally controlled along with lights etc. Sony home entertainment system, Como grooming products, black and white marble bathroom, fully loaded mini bar along with crisps, nuts & jelly bellys, complementary bottled water.....the list goes on! The room was that good that we didn't want to leave it. The benchmark test for me for a good hotel is the quality of their club sandwich! After a quality night out at the theatre/cocktail bar we arrived back at hotel. Ordered room service at 2:30am, polite gentleman took my order. 15mins later waiter arrived with silver service again along with possibly the best club sandwich I ever tasted. Seriously, I can’t say enough about how much my girlfriend and I enjoyed our stay. The worst thing about it was leaving! The only downside for people staying in the week would be the lack of a hotel car par. You can park in the street but only for 4hrs max. All in all a quality experience not to be missed. Yes it’s pricey but you get what you pay for. To see the look on my girlfriends face when we were shown round was well....priceless. Needless to say a birthday weekend to remember. Hope this is useful to somebody. I would whole heartedly recommend this place to anybody. We are already looking to book one of their sister hotels in Bangkok for xmas/new year.
