Bimal was incredibly helpful.
The rooms were VERY small. We switched from a postage stamp sized room to one with another 10 square feet. The cleaning staff talked loudly on their cell phones as they went from room to room.
Everything was great, from the room, the location and the staff. I have never experience a more friendly or helpful staff. They were definitely there to make sure we were happy and comfortable, and they did a wonderful job!
Very clean. Friendly staff, quiet room.
Single room was small, and did not have a dresser, only a closet. The bed was kind of hard.
breakfast! also peace & quiet and proximity to Tube and other amenities
sulphurous smell from bathroom, not from my use of the facilities but even coming into the room after a day out
The Radisson Edwardian Vanderbilt breakfast was very very good indeed. Great choice, perfectly cooked and great service
No Cold Water in the rooms.
Staff were friendly and attentive, bar food was excellent quality and value for money, room was high standard

bell captain arranged taxi, seems to be an unlicenced taxi. they don't have a meter and want to hard sell
location was good and room/staff were good
room was a bit small but only what one has to expect with a central london hotel in this style
Incredibly small room. Also smely.
Lift works badly
intial room I was allocated was tiny, but they were happy to move me when I complained
The staff were great and really responsive to my needs and requests.
I thought the room decor and bathroom facilities were over priced when compared with other market offers
