Stayed one night on a weekend. Location is probably the best part of this hotel - it's an incredibly short walk to the Baker St. subway. We saw a show in Piccadilly and walked back quite easily, which was great. The neighborhood itself is also nice to look around - Madame Tussauds is around the corner, the Marylebone high street is around another corner, there's a Tesco Express and loads of little cafes and shops around. Very safe-feeling area: I would have felt comfortable walking around as a single woman, even late.
Hotel itself is full of warm wood. Lobby has a bar/cafe area with comfortable seating and free newspapers. Restaurant and reception are towards the rear - we didn't eat there as there's a lot in the neighborhood.
Our room was pretty small (and had paid for an upgrade) but I suppose that's just central London hotels. It was clean and comfortable - double bed, small desk and desk chair and television. Furniture, showers, some doors etc show signs of wear but it's not dirty, just a well-used hotel.
Staff (particularly front desk) were friendly and very attentive. Wifi was on the fritz during our visit (which normally would drive me crazy, but this was a short stay) - so perhaps check that when booking. They have a courtesy computer you can use in the lobby.
I will definitely be recommending this place to family or work contacts who need a reasonably priced and well-located hotel in London.
