I stayed here one night in March 2013 and wished I could stay longer. I had never heard of the Grange hotel chain, so was a bit anxious about what the hotel would be like. I needn't have worried. The staff on the whole are very nice and speak good English (many hotels in London are staffed almost exclusively by foreigners who don't always speak good English!), the room is spacious, and the bathroom modern and state-of-the-art, with a rainfall column shower, a nice big sink, and a bathtub. The hotel is brand-new and you can smell the volatile organic compounds outgassing still, which is an issue for asthmatics and chemically-sensitive people like myself. The window does not open. The hotel is 5-10 minutes walk to Tower Hill tube and Aldgate tube, but neither station has escalators or elevators so beware if you are hauling lots of luggage like I was! The pool, jacuzzi, steam room, and sauna are all super nice, as is the changing room. There is a small Tesco just around the corner, but otherwise not much going on. It's a former docklands converted to a business area, I think. I find myself going on the tube for shopping and eating. Free good-speed wifi in the room is a great bonus, much appreciated after my Hilton London Metropole stay, which wasn't such a great experience. In all, the Grange compares extremely well with the Four Seasons Canary Wharf not far away where I stayed for 3 nights last year, albeit at a much lower price if you are lucky. I would come here again if I get a super deal; otherwise, the Four Seasons Canary Wharf is an extremely attractive option and they always seem to have a special offer going with lots of included freebies.
