3rd November. Booked a double for £140 per night which was upgraded to an "Executive" when we arrived.
Location very good indeed, just a couple of minutes walk from the tube, 5 mins walk down to a landing stage, iconic structures all around and a riverside walkway into town: quiet too, compared to the West End.
Reception had a glowing, cosy, rosy wood, Art Deco feel to it. Staff were friendly. Free pc was useful. Didn`t try the spa.
Fair ammount of circulation space in the room. Corporate rather than charming feel to it but that`s what you often get with high star chains. If you looked hard maybe you could see signs of long use:- a bit of veneer chipped off, a bit of tarnish on the bathroom chrome but, in our room (518) it was hardly noticeable. I only mention it because other reviewers thought the hotel was showing its age. The overall impression for me was - still looking swish.
Furniture, fittings, fabrics, carpets, bedlinen were good-looking. Berry toiletries smelled good too. View into the rear court was OK, looking down on a piece of Roman/Medieval wall. The room was beautifully warm, the bath was hot. I`d`ve liked fresh milk and more ordinary tea bags but I suppose that`s each to his own.
The breakfast was an expensive £23 for continental and an extra £5 for a cooked plate whereas there`s a Weatherspoons 4 mins walk away in a fine old building with mugs of tea for 99p and two breakfasts for a tenner.
Overall we found it an attractive, fit-for-purpose, well-located place to come back to after a hard day`s sightseeing. I`d stay there again for the right price.
