We stayed at the Corus for 4 nights through a British Airways package and enjoyed the hotel very much. We had a standard room which was very small by American standards, had no drawers to put your belongings in and no closet - only a rack in the room to hang your clothes from. The rooms were spotless, however and tastefully remodeled in a very contemporary style.

The hairdryer was underneath the desk and you had to sit down to dry your hair because the cord wasn't very long. My husband is 5'4" and he had some trouble getting out of the high-sided tub. Remember to bring a washcloth or shower scrubby as these are not provided. Shampoo, soap and shower gel are in the rooms. If you need conditioner for your hair, bring that too.

We very much enjoyed the continental breakfast that was provided. Hard rolls with jelly and butter, croissants, a variety of packaged cheeses, some cold ham, red grapefruit and orange juices, cold cereals with milk, canned mandarin oranges and grapefruit sections, coffee, tea, and decaf with steamed milk most days. The view of Hyde Park while eating breakfast was wonderful. If you want to take your second cup of coffee on the road, bring a travel mug as they don't have any paper cups with lids.

The concierge was extremely helpful. Also, all the staff were polite and friendly. We did not get one wake-up call on the first day after a nap - but woke up shortly therafter so it was not a problem. All the morning wake-up calls did happen. Our room was ready when we got to the hotel about 10:30 a.m. - which was a godsend! They stored our luggage at no charge on the last day while we did some final sightseeing before we left for the airport. Our room had a view of a brick wall - but we were not there for the view. We were not disturbed by any outside noises but kept the fan on all night because we like whitenoise when we sleep. The bed was comfortable and we slept well every night.

We only used the Lancaster Gate station (one block away) because it was so close and once we were on the tube, we were able to transfer anywhere we wanted to go from there. We took a short black cab ride from our hotel to Paddington station to get the Heathrow Express back to the airport. We could have walked it but didn't want to with so much luggage. I highly recommend using this way to get to and from the airport rather than a "hotel transfer" by Hotelink included or added on to a package.

The only reason I would stay elsewhere next time is that I liked other areas of town better. Marylebone, Covent Gardens and Soho were all favorites and seemed to be more in the "thick of things." Otherwise, I would go back to the Corus in a minute.

BACKGROUND: This hotel was included in a package deal from British Airways. We were visiting from Washington, DC, and stayed from Saturday Jan. 29th through Monday Jan. 31st, 2005. I liked it upon sight, probably because I'm used to very Holiday Inn/Comfort Inn kinds of hotels.

LOBBY: It seemed "upscale" to me - very clean, with a nice open lobby full of places to sit down and people-watch, and the style of furnishings seemed very contemporary - nice bright colors, art, assymmetric couches, etc.

SERVICE: I wouldn't say there was a "friendly" feel to the hotel (I can't remember any smiling ...), but all the staff was very professional, helpful, and polite. We were able to leave our bags at the concierge desk and get something to eat, then came back to check in at 2:00 p.m.

CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST (free): Breads, fruit, cheeses, cereal, coffee, hot chocolate, oj - your basic continental offerings. We thought everything was yummy.

ROOM: I also took pictures of the decor in here because I loved the clean, modern style of the room. It was, indeed, quite small, but we were in a 3-star hotel in Rome that was even smaller, so we were prepared for that. It was more than enough room to shower, sleep, and have our bags/clothes accessible. They had a TV, coffeemaker, pants press, safe, and toiletries in each room. Everything was very clean, and the water in the shower was hot and plentiful - something I'm always grateful for.

OTHER: The one thing we had a problem with was a gaggle of people waiting at our 4th floor elevator in the mornings. We tried to find stairs, but could only find staircases marked "for fire emergency only."

LOCATION: We thought this was a convenient location because the tube was right down the block, and the bus stop for the tour buses was right around the corner. We also enjoyed the pub next door, "The Swan." We had lunch there one day, then stopped in both nights on our way back to the hotel for a nightcap (or three) and live music. The people were very friendly here and we found people to talk to very easily.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay here, but would probably experiment with another hotel if we were to come back, only because we like to try new things. We might also stay in one of the busier areas, like Covent Garden or Piccadilly Circus or Soho instead.
