| modern bathroom, but only half a shower door… so French

at least 4 nights in London
RECOMMENDED DISTRICTSCovent Garden, Soho, Piccadilly, St. James, Oxford Circus
VERDICT: 4.5 / 5
Excellent Stay. Although this hotel boasts a 5 star rating, I believe it is more along the lines of a 4.5 stars. Upon arrival, we were handed fresh Guava Pineapple Juice which was quite refreshing after a long journey. In addition, my husband and I also received a free upgrade which was very much appreciated. In general, when staying in Europe, my philosophy is to spend on location and a nice room since European standards tend to be lower than American standards. Highly Recommended.
Pros: Centrally located. 5 minute walk from Piccadilly Circus & Trafalgar Square. Although close to Piccadilly, it is away from all the noise & chaos. Beautiful Lobby. Classic luxury Rooms/Bathrooms. Comfortable Beds. Very Accommodating Staff. Excellent French Press Coffee.
Cons: French style shower with only 1/2 a door, this is more cultural than anything else. Small Window – not enough light. Small Rooms, although expected in London.
Future Stays in London, I have my heart set on:
St. Martins Lane Hotel (Covent Garden) The Langham Hotel (Marylebone/Oxford St.)
