    The location was fantastic.

    The out of town crowd the hotel attracts is undesirable... I often made to feel like second class due to the fact I am a woman... I hear this crowd often descends on London in the summer though so I can't slight the hotel for accommodating to them

    Great location, good size rooms, ok housekeeping

    Location, deluxe room quite good in size

    Housekeeping not on par with 5 star hotels. Sometimes they forget to clean the room. I have to call to ask them to clean otherwise they would wait hours and hours before they clean.

    very nice business hotel. Room was nice.

    Lots of street noise from night clubs across the street. When the Queue formed 11pm + and especially when the club closed 1:30-2:30am, the street noise was very loud (above TV level). The only night it was not an issue was when it was raining. The room also didn't have a bath tub.

    The Hotel was convenient to the Tube and a lot of very nice restaurants and shops. Their free wifi was very fast!

    The fitness center was a little small for that size hotel
