We stayed here for two nights end of Jan, '07, and we had a great time in what can only be described as a complete design experience. Having read other TA reviews, I was expecting pouting staff looking gorgeous but completely useless; I was pleasantly surprised to see that the staff were some of the most hospitable I have encountered in a large hotel. They were polite, informative and extremely friendly in a very sincere way - not what you usually get from this type of place!
The communal areas are fab., with a great and vibrant bar wich serve lovely cocktails and wines. The long central bar feels a little bit posy, but I guess the whole place is. The private bar was quiet on both nights we were there - early in the week - but is fun and decadent. The martini collection is nothing if impressive.
Our room was a good size with a big sleigh bed and a running machine! White floor to ceiling curtains seperate the bathroom which was sleek, clean and of course trendy. (Only shower, no bath). Plenty of nice toiletries. Spa was an experience - the hot stone body massage, whilst pricey, was brilliant. It's a must see area of the hotel so do have go!
Overall highly recommended as a great treat - didn't get chance to try the restaurant but it looks similarly stylish. Will definitely stay again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A lavish "Urban Spa" in the heart of London’s West End, Sanderson offers a retreat from the bustle of the city into a world of fantasy and wellbeing. The landmarked 50s building has been transformed into a surreal Cocteau-like dream world, epitomizing a “new luxury” that is smart, pared down, and tempered with a healthy dose of wit and irony. Sanderson’s indoor/outdoor lobby is a layered and sophisticated environment that is totally original. ... more less
