We were lucky enough to stay in one of Crown Metropol's 'Loft Rooms' as a present for my wife going on maternity leave. The room itself was simply sumptuous, and as you would expect from a newly-built hotel all the fittings and fixtures are first-class.
The bags took a long time to come up to the room - about 45 mins. But we didn't mind that too much.
We had access to Level 28 for the drinks & canapes in the evening, but there were a couple of disappointments - firstly we were challenged on the way in by the concierge because we had our 10-month old son in a stroller with us and apparently no under-18s are allowed in the area after a certain time - fair enough but he was 10 months old and we weren't planning on serving him champagne! The second let-down was the 'canapes' which basically consisted of some bread with dips. We got one serve and had to ask for some more. Nice enough but not really the selection of canapes that was advertised.
We dined at Mr Hive restaurant downstairs which was fairly good. However there is such a lot of choice in that area we probably should have gone out and eaten somewhere else along Southbank.
Overall though a very nice stay.
