This is the second of two hotels that my wife and I and brother and sister in law stayed at the last half of Aug. The first was the Sofitel St James and due to availability at the Sofitel we were required to look for a second location. Both hotels are extremely nice properties though they have a few differences. Both were what I would consider 4-4.5 star properties. Montague is an older property and is in excellent shape. We were upgraded to a larger room (109, I believe it was the Viscount suite). Front desk staff and concierge were extremely helpful and were a little more 'down to earth' than the Sofitel front desk staff, though neither is intended to be negative. In my opinion, food at the Montague was superior to the Sofitel. My wife preferred the Sofitel food, finding it a little less 'rich'. She has gluten intolerance and generally found the food a bit lighter at the Sofitel. The room was a very good size, with a lower area (down approx 8 steps from the bedroom area) that included a very large washroom with 2 sinks as well as 2 desks. The bar was nice though service was not as quick as the Sofitel and snacks were hard to come by at the Montague whereas Sofitel was constantly filling up the snack bowls.
This hotel is directly across the street from the British Museum and a very short walk to the Covent Garden district. If you're looking to be a 5 minute walk from the 'action' in a very nice hotel, this is a great choice. It is about a 10 minute walk to Holborn underground station and is a £72 cab ride from Heathrow, though we may have been taken on a bit of a 'sightseeing' cab ride back to the airport.
