“Great Location & Good Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

I stayed in this hotel after my usual hotel was fully booked and unavailable.

The location was great. It is right in the heart of London. There is much to see and do within walking distance.

The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful.

I llike the free WiFi, the free use of computers and the free Nescafe in the room.

On the downside, the room was not large. The furniture was plain, simple and far from new as was the bathroom. And I hate that I had to swipe my room key every time I used the elevator.

I would stay here again on a vacation. If I was on a business trip, I would probably look elsewhere.

We only stayed one night in the Grand, which is acutally the same hotel as the Club Quarters. The location is unbeatable, right next to Trafalgar Square, staff is very professional. Somebody came into our room at 8 in the morning and when I reported this the guest relation manager looked after us so well and provided a voucher for a complimentary upgrade for our next stay. They provide free water on the corridors and if you need extra milk or coffe sachtes that's available on the corridor as well from a wardrobe:) We booked a small double room and even that was big enough for 2 people. Everything was great about this place.

This was our second stay here. We arrived at London Euston train station then got the tube to Charing Cross - no problems and very quick, also cheaper than a taxi, Charing Cross is a skip away from the hotel itself. Great location for getting around and seeing the sights, as well as shopping. Nice to have free chilled water and ice with ice buckets available near the lifts on each floor. We stayed here for two nights, the first night we went to see Billy Elliot (a must see), then spent the next day sightseeing. The hotel staff were very friendly and acknowledged us each time we saw them during our stay. The only gripe was that while we were left with a selection of coffee and tea, we were only left with one sachet of milk each, therefore we could only have one drink! More milk please!

A nice hotel in the heart of London.Steps away from the Strand, the Embankment (and London Eye), Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden and Leicester Square. Tons of fast food places like Pret and Garfunkel and nice restaurants at Covent Garden. Easy access to theatres. Good enough bathroom with mirrors galore, plenty towels and great toiletries. Beautiful bay window and window seat to take the outside action in. Gives great natural light. Great wifi in lower rooms. Has a fitness centre and loads of free drinkable water with recyclable bottles. Taxiis right outside hotel.
Main peeve is the bed. Should provide king beds for the price of rooms.
If you need anything else in room like a mini fridge, just ask.

Room Tip: Rooms facing Northumberland Road are noisy due to frequent sirens and tourist buses.

Spent only one night at the Club Quarters after a change in plans and getting a great rate on Hotwire. It was a clean adequate room for 3 (we had our adult son with us). Nice mini kitchen. Shower is a little tight. The best part about this hotel is the location.....you can walk every where. Lots of pubs around.

We booked this hotel mainly for the location as we had tickets to see our grandaughter in a show at a theatre on the Strand and another plus is that the hotel has reasonably priced parking nearby....we only stayed for the one night as we were off on holiday the following day but our stay was a very pleasant one.The Grand is in a fabulous central location overlooking Trafalgar Square,in walking distance to many west end theatres,bars,restaurants,shops and many of the historical sights of London.The lobby was spacious and beautifully decorated in an art deco style and with an equally stylish bar. Check in staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was very reasonably priced for such a good location,the room was of a decent size,spotlessly clean,good sized bathroom,comfortable bed...and from our windows lovely roof top views. Would stay here again.
