We stayed here for one night in June for my girlfriend’s birthday, using Priority Club points which meant we could book a Classic room for free (otherwise it would have been £300). On arrival, we were delighted to be upgraded to a Superior room in honour of her birthday, and then 5 minutes after getting into the room, a decorated dessert iced with a Happy Birthday message was delivered – amazing service when we were getting the room for free already!
Our Superior room overlooked the next door property’s roof terrace and Hyde Park Corner and had all mod cons – good aircon, fab shower, Bang & Olufsen surround sound TV etc. It was also surprisingly quiet considering the hotel's location close to a very busy junction in central London - didn't notice traffic noise at all.
Service was excellent, friendly and attentive – from the doormen to room service to the reception staff.
We didn’t eat in the hotel, but it’s a very nice walk through Green Park past Buckingham Palace and down to the bottom of Haymarket where we had a restaurant booked. Afterwards we walked back through St James Park past the ponds then cut through Green Park again, thus avoiding all the traffic around Piccadilly.
Would highly recommend this hotel if you can afford it – or have sufficient Priority Club points like us! Would say it is far superior to the Holiday Inns of the same chain.
