This hotel met all expectations and failed to disappoint in an way, shape or form.
Situated on a quite road (which is rare for central London) and less than a 2 minute walk to Bank underground station. Everything about this hotel is 'grand'!
Unfortunately we were unable to check-in early, however we were able to leave our bags which were then subsequently placed in our room ready for when we returned to check-in later. It is the little things like this that make all the difference, such as the two large bottles of complementary water that were brought up to our room in the evening.
If I was to be super critical then I would say that the plug to the bathroom sink was broken (plug was stuck pressed down) and that the view (from our room at least) was non-existent. We did not stay for the view and the water in the sink did eventually drain away so this was not of any inconvenience.
You get what you pay for and this hotel is no exception.
