This was our first trip to London and I really utilized the reviews on Trip Advisor to make my decision. The comments prior to mine are right on target. The entire staff here that we encountered were wonderful. Beyond friendly and always helpful and made you feel right at home. It is a bit hard to find once you exit the tube station and the first time we were hauling luggage as we came from the airport. The mall that is attached has everything you need to include a grocery store. We were tired of eating out one night and decided to get a small meal to make in the room but the prices for food in the grocery store are really no cheaper than eating out. The rooms are super quiet which I loved. But don't be fooled by a "king suite" for us Americans that means a king bed as well.... Not here the bed is a queen. The bed and bedding were very comfortable. The breakfast in the morning is a real plus and the views from there are spectacular. My only complaint is that it is a bit out of the city proper and you really need to get on a tube to do anything. Most rides averaged 20 to 30 minutes and little waiting at the stations. It's good to buy a week long pass. But it took almost an 1 1/2 hours to get here from the airport with two major switches. A pain when hauling luggage but a taxi would cost well over $130 dollars. Bottom line..must not mind riding the tube a lot to get around. We are staying near the airport for our last night as we have an early flight and don't want to mess with the trains at 0300.
Would stay here again for sure.
