Good stay but not the 9.4 excellent on reviews
Fantastically positioned hotel we walked everywhere but compared to other 5 star hotels we stay at in London this one doesn’t compare. Our room was tired and the bathroom needed attention. The welcome at reception was good, the valet parking gentleman on arrival was great and we received great service in the American Bar but would not choose to stay again unfortunately.

Simply the best.
Staff are not only professional, but charming. Nothing is too much trouble and the "stuffiness" one normally associates with 5 star hotels is absent.
