Upgraded to a Duplex Suite. Daughter slept on sofa bed downstairs which had a softer mattress than the queen upstairs (extremely hard!). Daily housekeeping was nice. Plenty of nice, thick towels. Gloucester Road station is across the street which makes it extremely convenient after a long day of walking. Would absolutely stay here again!

Stayed here once when it was a Crown Plaza. For some reason they gave that flag away and handed to Hilton. Bad move IHG. I totally love everything this hotel has to offer in spite of Pandemic's cut back services. The staff from front to back are awesome. The property couldn't be more convenient to the underground.There is a beautiful garden area outback which I don't think you will find at any other hotel that Iam aware of.(They also have enclosed dining out there) The wifi was excellent.The bed/pillows were comfortable (for me anyway. It's subjective) I'am not overly picky but I've stayed in enough hotels to know good from bad. This one is excellent! But keep it to yourself (smile)

Excellent location to stay for visits to the local museum's. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and our room was big and clean. Breakfast was great and the kids enjoyed the automatic pancake machine! We also managed to check in early and given free cookies on arrival! Highly recommend!

So, the trip was not at all what I had expected because of a problem. However had it not been for the wonderful staff at this hotel I think me and the one I was travelling with, would have gone mad. One woman especially, who worked in the reception, made a huge difference and I think me and the one I travelled with will be forever grateful. I'm unsure of her name because it was a litle while ago now - but I think it was something along the lines of Leonie. The hotel is also located in a superb location with a perfect distance to Hyde Park aswell as Glouster Road station - therefor also a short ride to Westfield. Breakfast was alright and so was the lounge, but the staff were out of this world incredible.

This hotel is very reasonable given its location in London. Harrods is a mile down the same street and it’s very close to Hyde Park and plenty of restaurants and stores for shopping. However If you’re traveling from America and like having wash clothes aka face towels pack your own! They only have larger towels. The breakfast here is descent as long as you don’t mind powdered eggs. If not two Starbucks are close by. Last, I highly recommend the dinner out back in the garden inside the private bubbles.
