This is a beautiful hotel, extremely well located, with large public reception area. The rooms are small, like all of London, but finished very nicely with touches of luxury. The staff is professional and very nice. I always stay at the club level. Here is costs an additional $150USA. The club is large with two TV areas and 3 great Apple 27" computers and lots of tables and chairs. Across one wall is large floor to ceiling windows with great views of the park and London. All day you can serve yourself to water, soft drinks and coffee/tea from express machine (but no decafe on machine}. Breakfast is very good with large selection of berries which is special. You order hot foods from menu and the omelette was wonderful. Tea time is the standard fair. The real disappointment is with the evenings food offerings at cocktail time. The drinks are plentiful with all hard liquor and free flowing Moet. But the food is not good. Unlike Ritz Carltons, Intercontinental in Hong Kong and Vienna, some Marriotts, and even the Hilton located across the street, this club level restricts its offering to 3 items and 2 pieces of each (I am sure you could get more if requested) that are served to your table. It is similar practice to Intercontinental in Sydney and Bali. The only display food is a small cheese and cracker platter and cut up vegetables. Yes there are potato chips,olives and nuts. The served food rotates on a 3/4 day basis so you will get the same thing if you stay a while. One of the three items is always a pastry cup (about ½" in diameter) with some mayo salad inside like squid. The other two could be a cold meatball, a chicken leg, a small ½" piece of bread with pate on it.
You would think for the $150 extra they could a better job with the evening snacks and allow you to serve yourself. The only other issue I had with the club may have been unique to my visit. The club allows children even without their parents present. During my stay of 7 days, 4 of these children hanged out at the club with their parents treating the club like a day care center. They monopolized the computers playing various on line games and destroyed the tmosphere of the club.
