I'm really torn between 3 and 4 stars, because the Abbet Westpoint is excellent in several areas. It has a nice lobby. There are two computers in the lobby forgurst use as well as free wifi in the rooms. The staff was very helpful. I didn't expect concierge services, but telling me where I could find a laundromat and that type of thing made my stay more pleasant
The location is perfect, especially for those using Paddington station to get to and from Heathrow and/or areas west of London, such as the Cotswolds. The tube is right there too.
My main complaint was the room and shower size, but that is typical for hotels around Sussex Gardens. The shower, however, was almost unbelievably small. I'm 5'8" and weigh about 145and I just fit. I couldn't put my elbows out and hunch down,, elbows in front, in order to do the job.
But then I know that for most of its life this hotel, like all the others in the area, had shared baths and now that everyone wants en-suite theyve made bathrooms out of the closets. Sigh. Next time maybe I'll have $300 per night to spend on a "real" hotel.More
