We stayed for 5 nights. It is well located - the tube is adjacent. St Paul's is a short walk away.
The room was a little larger than the standard London hotel room. It was very comfortable, soundproof and well equipped. Nothing to fault.
We had access to the lounge which provided a good continental breakfast as well as drinks and snacks in the evenings.
The hotel staff were friendly and very helpful. We ate at the restaurants - the Italian on the ground floor was excellent - the Chinese Cricket Club - good without having any wow.
Overall, an excellent stay and one where I would be happy to return.

Loved everything about this hotel. Firstly my IHG Platinum Status was acknowledged as I was given an upgrade to a Club Room with access to the Executive Lounge.
The Lounge was well stocked with refreshments and there was also a drinks and canapes service as well as free continental breakfast in the morning. I think this is the biggest CP Lounge in the UK that I have seen. Bed was very, very comfortable!
My room was clean and fresh and had a king size bed. It was well stocked with tea an cofee and hot chocolate. The coffee was roasted and in a french press.
Room was also well furnished.
Overall the hotel had a really classy ambience, particularly the lounge opposite the check-in desk. Quite Victorian...somewhat!
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Hotel is literally in the heart of London and central to everywhere.
Will definitely consider staying here in future.
