I couldn't be happier about my decision to stay at The Grand at Trafalgar. The location was obviously fantastic, and the hotel was perfect for my needs -- the refrigerator and the water station in the hallway were both great. I was prepared for my room to be pretty mediocre, but it was perfectly nice -- definitely nicer than the rooms appear on the website. Other reviewers have noted that there's no real seating area in the lobby, but the bar just off the lobby has lounge seating that I never had a problem sitting in while I was waiting for someone, etc. And if you stay there to be in the middle of everything, there's no reason to spend much time in the hotel anyway.
A couple of notes:
(1) I randomly stopped at The Clarence, just around the corner on Whitehall, for lunch one day. It was so charming, and the butternut squash and brie "salad" (on wild rice and bulgur wheat) blew away my expectations about British food. I'd eat there every day if I could.
(2) As a runner, I loved waking up at the eastern edge of three parks. Every morning, I would run through St. James Park, Green Park, and Hyde Park, with very few street crossings except at Buckingham Palace (about six miles round trip).
