Stayed here for my partners birthday having arranged a night out in London - posh meal, theatre etc as wanted somewhere old, quirky, romantic and gay friendly.
The staff nor the hotel disappointed either of us. You think just cos a hotels in SoHo, it's gay friendly, but I've learnt that the higher the star rating, it doesn't always mean that the staff or the clientele are any more accepting despite being in a metrosexual city, but I'm glad to say this is not the case at Hazlitts at all.
From the moment we arrived, two ladies that were stressed, running later than we wanted to be, dinner reservation at posh restaurant and chances of getting there fading (we had already had to ring once to get the reservation put back), the staff at the hotel immediately sprung into action and did all they could to lift our moods and get our evening back on track.
Having booked in they showed us to our room, spent time explaining how things worked, pointed out where everything was etc and then left us to get ready whilst they rang the restaurant to put our dinner reservation back again and organise us transport... Freeing us up to get ready and go out and spoil ourselves!
After a gorgeous dinner we returned to the hotel and locked ourselves away in our room, which was lovely, clean and quiet. We didn't hear other guests and raided the mini bar to our hearts content. Drinks were quite pricey, but what the heck..
The room itself was very pleasant.. a bit pricey for its size in comparison to other hotels I've paid less for that have more facilities, but they have been on the edge of the city, larger and I guess cheaper because of their location.
Hazlitts has everything in walking distance.. bars, restaurants, theatres, clubs, the shops.
It is a boutique hotel and does it very well.
My only complaint... The sound of running water after you flushed the toilet.. it trickled constantly all night. Slightly annoying yes, but not enough to bother staff with during the middle of the night.
That aside, we had a thoroughly pleasant stay...cut short by being rather unwell.
Maybe we will get back there to fulfill our stay one day :-)
