My sister and I spent 4 days in London, primarily to attend a Buckingham Palace Garden Party to celebrate the Queen's 60th anniversary of her coronation. Since it was a short trip, we splurged on this glorious, completely refurbished hotel, that evokes all the luxury of the golden age of travel, and London's essence of Victorian Charm, with every modern convenience. When we checked in we felt immediately welcomed and cared for by SRIJITA who helpfully suggested we upgrade our room to include the Executive Lounge. Tripadvisor reviewers had also suggested this so we said YES and boy were we glad we did. What a delight to stroll down the hall every morning to a complete English breakfast, and settle down in the evening with a glass of wine and light snacks. The hotel has a back entrance to Victoria Station train and underground. We did not hear ANY noise whatsoever, but appreciated the convenience of being that close to transportation. We were within easy walking distance .... maybe 15 minutes... of Buckingham Palace for our big day on Friday, the Garden Party. We rented bicycles close by and toodled along the Thames to The Tower of London, spent the day at Westminster Abbey with Evensong choir performance that took our breath away. Per square inch I don't think there's anywhere else in England with more history than the Abbey. We had a magical trip. Home too soon, but we remember Srijita's gracious manner, her smart tips (she even had the kitchen pack a breakfast picknick for us to eat in the Taxi at 5am on the way to Heathrow!) and delightful greetings when we met up with her at the Executive Lounge. We would definitely return.
