I chose the Radisson Edwardian Vanderbilt because it participated in the American Express points reward program. The hotel is conveniently located near the Gloucester Road Underground and a 7 minute walk from Harrods. My room, 104, was labeled a "Family Room" and it was very tight for my wife and 15 year old son.
The room had a leather couch that had a pull out bed for my son. The room had a desk and LCD TV. The bathroom was very small. Sitting on the toilet was a tight squeeze and the room just felt very tight with luggage.
The hotel hallway carpets and room carpets felt that they could use a freshening up. The staff was very friendly. The breakfast buffet was about $20 US, was nice but a bit sparse in selection compared to US chain hotel buffets.
The hotel advertises that the WiFi is free but it only has signal strong enough for downstairs. The free Radisson Wifi network could not be connected on the 1st floor. I feel that this is misleading especially since the Internet is something I use alot when I travel. I was able to find a public Wifi service that cost 15 Pounds for 5 days.
Bring adapters for US electronics. Hotel charges 10 Pounds to rent a converter.
