Yet another branch on the Hilton family tree. I suppose they're pitching it just below the Hilton brand itself.
Stayed here Saturday and Sunday night recently - to be honest, good 4* experience in general. Service friendly and efficient and buffet breakfast good, and, even when busy, well-staffed so tables cleared quickly, coffee brought on time etc. Rooms are Ok, though on the small side and not many seemed to have any sort of view at all.
This hotel is ideally placed for Westminster and the Tate Gallery and in moderate walking distance of Buckingham Palace - so good for tourists. And that is certainly what the hotel was during my stay - mainly foreign tourists.
A few points - the bar is spacious and service there not bad but it seems aimed at young people - loud rap soundtrack and almost disco lighting. And the hotel still seems to be doing a little 'bedding in" - where our mini-bar fridge should have been was just an empty cupboard and loud banging - not from the building site outside but from inside the hotel - started at 8.15 on the Monday morning.
However, they seem to have pitched the idea of this chain right - might use it again.
