Me and my new husband stayed here for a minimoon straight after our wedding day. My husband had booked this hotel and whole weekend away as a suprise, but unfortunatly we were quite disappointed with what we found.
As others have mentioned, the first impressions of the staff arent great. The receptionists are quite surly and disinterested. We had mentioned on booking that we were on honeymoon but this wasnt acknowledged. We didnt expect anything extra, but an acknowledgement would have been nice.
We were asked whether we wanted a quieter room which we accepted, but this involved being at the back of the hotel, overlooking an industrial looking lot of buildings with a generator on the go 24/7. The room itself was nice, but very strange...we couldnt put our finger on what it was that was wrong with it, but I think the problem is the shape. The room was overly long, and not wide enough. Being on the top flor meant the rooms had started being built into the roof, so we had pillars in the way in the room blocking most of the view.
We ordered breakfast in bed the first day. Whilst we expected a small charge, I think the cost of £16 to deliver breakfast to the room was extortionate considering breakfast was included in the price of the room. The food was fine, nothing to write home about.
The location of the hotel was, as others have said its main selling point and probably the reason for the high price tag. Tube stations are a 5 minute walk, and only 3/4 tube stops from the west end/oxford street etc.
It worth mentioning that we visited the Grange Holburn to use their spa facilities, and at first glance this hotel looked much nicer (but most of the staff were still pretty miserable). The spa is worth a visit if you can, and the Holburn makes the Fitzrovia look like the poor relative.
Overall, nothing terrible about the Fitzrovia, but most def not worth the price paid.
