Great Boutique Hotel

Perfect location in Picadilly. Just outside of the circus, but walking distance to all of London. Staff was top notch. VERY friendly and attentive. They are available within a moments notice 24/7. From a knowledge standpoint, international guests generally rely on the concierge for transport, currency exchange, directions and food recommendations. Not to be negative, because we thoroughly enjoyed the staff, but the concierge's knowledge base was poor beyond all description. The currency exchange recommended took a 25% commission on top of a 10% overcharge for exchange. When asked for a local jaunt for a restaurant, we were sent to an American Chain restaurant. None of these ruined the trip, because after the exchange problem - we skipped the advice on the TGIF chain and asked a bartender. The hotel offers a breakfast that is BY FAR the best hotel breakfast in all of England, if not Europe. Internet is pay by the minute, so save up if you want to check your email. Overall, the hotel is spectacular. Very eco-friendly. Rooms are pristine and state of the art in all possible considerations. No gym though, but they referred to an LA Fitness 4 minutes walk away - which has a great facility.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Waxy O'Connors Pub. It is the most amazing pub in all of the London. If you are looking for the local feel of an England pub in central London - it is the place to go. Top notch GastoPub food at good prices, but with a very friendly traditional English pub feel. Even better if you are looking to grab a beer without all of the footballers (go to the Red Lion during football season and you will know EXACTLY what I am talking about). 10 minute walk from the Cavendish, but worth every single step.

First empty nest experience

Small room, typical of central London hotels, but superb location, and Orbitz had an excellent price. National Gallery and other museums within walking distance, or one/two tube stops away. Shopping at Piccadilly Circus and Regent Street also within walking distance.

Nice hotel. Terrific location.

Cool, modern interiors. Comfortable room. Helpful staff. Great breakfast which was included in the package I bought. The location, across the street from Fortum and Mason and just a few blocks from two well connected tube stops, was fantastic. If you're anything of a walker, everything from Regent's Park to Buckingham Palace is within on foot radius. Not cheap, but a good value.

The hotel and staff were very professional. The area is full of professionals wearing business suits. This is the ideal hotel for a business traveler. Close to Buckingham Palace and the tube stop.

great hotel

Great hotel. Convenient location. We stayed on the 9th floor so got superb view. Don't expect to have a huge sq.ft. Room is small (reminds me Paris). If you travel as a couple with 1-2 suite cases and ready to spend more time exploring the city it's a great hotel. Too bad internet is pricey in the room, but one can use it in the lobby for free. Oh, one more thing best restaurants and cafes are 2-5 mins away.

superb location

Would have given a 5 star rating if the room had not been so small; the room, the closet and the bathroom. Location is extraordinary, walking distance to many important sights, theaters, restaurants, churches, Underground stops, etc. Breakfast is excellent. Staff is cheerful and helpful. The price was very right as we got our stay on an [...]special. We adjusted to the room size and were delighted to be there. Yes, we would go back, at the same price.

Great Hotel, Centrally Located

the service was fantastic! everyone from the front desk, to the bar staff, to the dining room staff, to the cleaning staff, was friendly, helpful, and really great. fantastic location, close to the piccadilly and bakerloo tube station which will get you to every other line in two to three stops. it was super quiet. our room faced two major construction projects, and once inside the room we could not hear a thing. though the room was small for two people with large suitcases for a week-long stay, we were able to make due. the shower is awesome. i miss it. the free breakfast was fantastic! besides the ample buffet, you can order other options. you can also get it delivered to your room instead of having to go to the dining room. we really liked this hotel and would recommend it.
