Stayed in this hotel for a business trip very recently. In many ways, the hotel fits the purpose of the stay - it is designed more for business than for leisure/family. In fact, throughout my 3 days there, I have not seen a single child! While that makes the hotel 'professional', it does lack a slight warmth and human touch.
Hotel is not big, which is good for business purpose. The rooms are also relatively small, in my views. However, it has everything you need - a good size table, a nice comfortable bed, bright bathroom with amenities, electric plugs in all the right places. Nothing to complain. Went up to the Club, and that wowed me :) Lovely view of vast expanse of Hyde Park, big and airy space at the Club with good facilities, cosy and intimate.
Breakfast at the Cafe was good, although the quality of food at the same place at dinner was not! There is a nice looking Italian restaurant at the lobby level too - did not try it, so can't comment on the quality.
I didn't get out of the hotel much so can't comment on the location. It is in a quiet part of a street, but taxi is easy to hail so no worries. Harrods is just a 5GBP ride, though I was told there is a station (Hyde Park Corner) next to the hotel.
In conclusion - a lovely hotel to stay in London although expensive. Would prefer it to be a bit more personal and warm, but it is definitely a good business hotel to stay in and to meet people.
Location is well
