I night stay end of December 2011. On the rare occassions I've splurged on a Four Seasons there's usually been a wow factor to justify the expense. Not here though, it's a perfectly solid 5-star, the staff are all Four Seasons calibre but the building and location, not really. That said it has its own virtues; like the proximity to the Thames Clipper ferry service that will get you out of London's dysfunctional transport system. On arrival the Circle Line was down and the Docklands Light Railway was shut for a month, that's par for the course in London so cruising up and down the river on the spacious boats was a fun, stress-free way to get about. As was the 15 minutes taxi ride to London City Airport.
Had dinner in the Italian restaurant, the food was great but two hours for a starter and main was too slow. Water pressure in the bathroom was great but it needed to be as the plug in the bath leaked and it ended up as a race between the two with the 'in' just winning. Great breakfast, and great service at the breakfast too.
So all in all a nice stay where what we'd thought would be a problem, the out of the way location, ended up - with the Thames Clipper service - being a virtue. You can get in to town and enjoy the hustle and bustle but also quickly escape from it too.
