I have reviewed this hotel before, but, as I probably stay at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Vanderbilt (or one of its sister hotels) on around 10 occasions each year, it seems timely to update my recommendation. The hotel has a number of practical advantages. It is on the tube line direct from Heathrow, and just seconds away from Gloucester Road station. I like to spend the afternoon before my meetings visiting galleries and museums, and this hotel is a short walk from the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum and the V&A. Less tangibly, from my many visits over the years, I have found that the staff are very welcoming and friendly, without being intrusive. I also enjoy the Edwardian decor, which gives the hotel a character that distinguishes it from some of its rather more bland modern competitors. Overall, it is convenient, but also has a personal quality to it that makes it more than just another bedroom for the night.
