We booked this hotel rather last minute as we decided to visit London as a birthday treat for my daughter. We stayed in the apartments. Our apartment overlooked the Thames; we had a great view. And what an apartment it was! Perfect, we couldn't complain. Spacious rooms and bathrooms; a large living area; floor to ceiling windows with great views.
Also, the staff on arrival were excellent (thank-you for the Champagne). I would thoroughly recommend a stay here.
We also chose to buy continental breakfast at the hotel. There's really nothing close by at which to buy breakfast and the one provided by the hotel is very good.
I like to run and the hotel's position was ok for this. (A hotel on Park Lane would be better as you can then run in Hyde Park but a hotel on Park Lane would be a little more expensive!). However, there's a great run East to Hungerford Bridge, across the Thames, Down Whitehall past Downing St, past the Houses of Parliament and the Tate before crossing Vauxhall bridge and back to the hotel - about 5k.
The only downside is the position of the hotel. It's on the south bank and the only sensible way to get into the heart of London is by taxi. This broadly means that you add £20 to your travelling costs per day (£10 into the West End and £10 back). Don't let this put you off, this is a wonderful hotel and I would strongly recommend it.
