I visited the strand to celebrate my 40th birthday. After many reviews saying how tiny the rooms are, I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. There was plenty of space. The room was clean and that is the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in, having back problems, I'm not used to having such a good night sleep. I had no internet problems, as long as you log in using the hotel password it was fine. I had an amazing breakfast. Red velvet pancakes with bananas in syrup and nutella cream. It was gorgeous! The setting next to the fish tank was lovely. I had a cocktail in the bar and that view is out of this world. A must. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The only disappointment was that while out, a staff member decided to help themselves to some sweets my husband left out, they didn't like it and it was spat out onto the bathroom floor next to the bin! This was being looked into when we left. Overall though, this hotel was great. I love New York and The Strand. I'm hoping to return this year.
