Was very disappointed to enter my 'deluxe suite' which had as much character as a Holiday Inn standard room. Expect in Holiday Inn's you get tea&coffee and bisuits at no extra cost. Unlike the Rockwell. Very bland with no character at all. No DVD player or i-pod dock and no bath. Bathroom was as small as they are in Paris-tiny! Its saving grace were the modern chic common areas & the attentive staff. Had ran out of keys so they staff had to let me in and out of my room. No compensation was offered. The breakfast- which is not included in the price is over priced for what you get. The cafes on Earls Court Road do better food & offers. It clearly has more exciting rooms as the website proves but I highly recommend you check that out before paying in advance and at the higher end price scale also as I did. If you want to spend £200+ on a 'design' hotel room in London go elsewhere. I was willing to pay for the 'wow' design factor which this room did not deliver.
