With a doorway (that all weekend seemed to need to be cleaned of empty crisp packages and dead leaves) onto Kingsway you can't ask for a better location in Central London. Walking distance to Covent Garden, Charing Cross, T-Square, theater district, etc. Lots of places to eat, especially chain coffee shops, within 20 - 200 yards of this exit. (Flashing a map from the desk is good for 20% off at some of them.)
Helpful, cheerful staff, clean room that could have used more towels in the bath. And while it does have all the techno IT bells and whistles, a way to plug the hair drier in in the bathroom (instead of having to use it in the common area) would have been nice. Comfy bed. Had the cleaning staff knock and try to walk in at 08:05 one Saturday morning but the folks at the desk agreed it wasn't the guest's responsibility to hang the little sign on the door as early as that. And they'd look into it.
Having ALL of the nice looking, heated, large patio area off limits to smokers seems a bit harsh (you are OUTSIDE people) but that's just the anti-smoking posse I guess. (I asked and was told it's CQ, not legal policy on this one.)
While the Japanese restaurant in the basement did offer up tasty samples outside the elevator doors the one evening, it seems a little odd that the hotel restaurant has a one-note theme. Personally, I think a general eatery more appropriate for a hotel catering to international business travellers. But other guests gave it favorable reviews for food and service. (And I'll confess to not being in the mood for raw fish that weekend.)
In all, a pleasant stay at one of a comfortable, organized and dependable chain with four locations in London. Minor whinges of no great importance. I'm certainly planning on staying there again (especially if their Trafalgar Square branch is fully booked).
