We stayed at the Melia White House, London, in March, as part of my husband's birthday celebration; we were visiting the theatre, the V&A, shopping, dining out.
It is ideally located, and close enough to Euston for walking to be a pleasant option given a sunny day.
The reception was excellent. As we were early, we were 'mostly' checked in, then popped off for a lovely pot of tea in the bar until our room was ready. When we completed our check-in, we were thrilled to find we had been upgraded from a classic room to an executive on The Level.
The elevators were a delight - no button pushing, just a car to take you to your floor - and our room was spacious, clean, more than comfortable, and exactly what we wanted.
We ate out, but the cocktails we had before bed in the hotel's bar were lovely, and very potent!
Our first night's sleep was amazing - our kids not being with us may have helped a little there - and breakfast was epic - eggs cooked to order, continental meats and cheeses, cereals, beautifully fresh cooked items, pastries, fresh fruit, breads. Really, I wanted to eat everything, and in the end we didn't eat lunch on either day because of the huge breakfast we each ate!
We spent the day and evening out in London (I cannot recommend the 39 Steps at the Criterion enough!), and had another fantastic night's sleep.
The hotel is clean and modern, well-appointed, staffed by kind and helpful people, and just perfect for a London-based break.
