Overnight London experience

London prices are ALL too high. This was a reasonable one in a great location close to Trafalgar Square but not as opulant as the web pictures would suggest and a little tired. Liked the ice machine and free bottled water on each floor and friendly staff. Might stay again sometime but not for an economy visit!

I will be back!

We stayed here two years ago. The experience was great. So we chose The Grand again. The staff was helpful( we had an early check-in to make a desired excursion), the room was lovely, comfortable and small touches like available bottled water and tea were welcome. The location to landmarks within walking distance and transportation to anything you want is a plus. only difficulty was room was too warm, the staff offer new accomadations immediately. will be back

Great price, location, and staff

Wonderful hotel. Room was very comfortable and large. Shower larger than a single shower. Staff was very accomodating and helpful. Free washer and dryer available. Very quiet. Right across the street from Sherlock's pub - GREAT local joint.

Great Location

Walking distance to Trafalgar Square, TKTS, theaters, the tour bus route. Nice, clean rooms. Negatives: Small desk staff for a large busy hotel. The internet never worked in our room despite 2 calls. Pricey, yet no coffee, newspapers, nice little touches you find at all of the less expensive hotels. Worth it to be able to walk to attractions.

Don't rent a car. Parking fees are obscene. Maps are terrible and traffic is bad. There's also a congestion fee just to drive in busy sections of London.

Fantastic Hotel for All!!

The hotel was a great central base to see Art Gallery/Museum and Theatres. The hotel was excellent, clean modern rooms with great facilities. All the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was superb, I cannot fault any part of my stay.

Location and more at this great hotel

The location of this hotel can't be beat. We enjoyed our stay so much, we returned to London and booked rooms at this hotel again. The staff is helpful and they have a closet open on the floor with extras you might need. They could use more front desk help during busy times--but no other issues here
