We stayed for 2 nights at The Windsor and we were very impressed with the staff attention and friendliness. The doorman (and i sadly forget his name - be is the older one) was exceptional in his service and friendliness. Al the front of house staff are a credit to the Hotel and should be highly valued.
The rooms are nicely decorated but be prepared for traffic and street noise. We were on the 4th floor and could hear quite a lot of noise at times. We did have a room with an adjoining door to the next and this made it possible for us and them to hear our respective conversations...not so good.
The Bathrooms are well designed however the shower was very difficult to calibrate so as to get the right temperature.
All together it was a restful stay with delightful surroundings and good staff...just fix the facility issues and it would be close to perfect.
