Marble Arch is the nearest Tube Station, and the hotel is two/three streets back parallel to Oxford Street. The road is relatively quiet compared with the hustle and bustle of the shopping street. The hotel sits on the corner of Portman Square facing the Hyatt Regency opposite.
I had requested an early check in and this was honoured, along with an upgrade to one of their Business Rooms. We had room 511, with a small balcony. Though the room was marked "non-smoking", there was a distinct smell of cigarette smoke as we entered. But it was a nice, warm day so we kept the sliding window open and did not notice it during the rest of our stay.
The large bed was set at a quirky angle in the room but was comfortable to sleep on. It had a duvet which is what we prefer. There was a coffee-capsule machine but we did not use it. The method of operation of these machines varies by brand, and it all too easy to waste capsules trying to figure out how to make them work!
The bathroom was modern in design and equiipment, with bath over the shower. This was relatively simple to use. Useful range of toiletries and wash cloths.
Access in the lift to the bedroom floors was validated by entering the plastic room key in a slot and pressing the chosen floor. This seems quite common these days.
There was a restaurant downstairs on the entrance floor and we saw a few lunching outside in the sun. Breakfast looked much busier though we did not have any.
We paid £142, which was fair for the standard provided and the location. I would stay again at that price.
