In July 2011, family of five stayed six nights in two adjoining rooms. The staff catered to my young children like you wouldn't believe. In-room DVDs and Wii games, popcorn, cookies and milk every night, games, complimentary mini-bar, etc. They really made us feel welcome.
It was very tough to find a hotel in London, with availability, that would accommodate a family of 5. We were about to give up when I called the Athenaeum. Cora (a manager) went the extra mile to find something that would work for us. I can't thank her enough - we probably wouldn't have made the trip without her help.
The concierges were great. Darren and Duncan arranged tickets and tours for us that were flawless. They were also helpful before our arrival, answering my many questions and arranging an airport transfer.
The hotel faces Green Park, is a block away from the original Hard Rock, and a short walk from Shepherd's Market, which is a nice area with pubs and restaurants. The Green Park underground station is a short walk, as is Buckingham Palace. We were within walking distance of Harrods, St. James Park, and Piccadilly Circus.
The level of service throughout the hotel is amazing. The entire staff bent over backwards to make sure our trip was pleasant. The doormen, bellmen, front desk and restaurant staff, were all all amazing. We didn't have a negative experience the entire stay.
