We've stayed previously at The Benjamin, the Michelangelo and The Trump -- and The London is our new favorite. Booked through Fine Hotels and Resorts and AMEX Platinum and I have to say the amenities this time around sealed the deal.
Enjoyed a two-bedroom London suite, fourth night free, complimentary breakfast for four daily, plus $100 food and bev credit made The London a real value - even before the outstanding and friendly service.
The concierge staff were knowledgeable and helpful, bellmen businesslike and not pushy - and housekeeping did all the right things to make this a most enjoyable stay.
Breakfast was, in a word, awesome. I love it when bagels and lox, and the accompaniments, are properly presented - the breads and fruit selections were beautiful and table service was attentive but not overbearing.
Our rooms were on a higher floor and VERY quiet. The bath amenities were top-shelf, plenty of towels, blankets, etc - but their pillows could use an upgrade. The Benjamin did have better pillows.
The exercise room was nice and upscale, but I thought there would be bottled water available...not.
You can't beat the location - two blocks south begins the craziness that is Times Square and four blocks north is Central Park. We strolled to Wicked at the Gershwin and enjoyed two dinners at Bobby Van's Steakhouse on 50th near 7th Ave - HIGHLY recommend the Caesar salad.
When we needed to ride the train to the US Open, we walked around the corner north onto 7th Avenue to 55th and, on the SE corner, walked down the stairs into the Subway to board the "N" train to Queensborough Plaza, changing to the 7 Train. It could not have been easier!
