The hotel is very modern, comfortable and nicely designed. Absolutely the best thing is that is literally half a block from Paddington station, from which you can get direct to and from Heathrow, not to mention to the Circle and District LInes. It is also right next to some fine eateries - just across the street from a wonderful Middle Eastern place, Ya Hala. Also some good pubs.

Location, location and location. Spitting distance from Trafalgar Square, close to two underground stations. Bus stop in front of hotel. Free laundrette is great for extended stays (where do you find that in hotels anymore). Really posh and well done lobby and lounge. There are two Pret a Mangers close by, a Cafe Nero downstairs and several great other cafes restaurants within 3 minutes walk. I have stayed in London many many times on both business & pleasure mostly at large chain hotels (4 or 5 star) and find The Grand at Trafalgar a better value for money.

This is generally a good hotel. The buffet breakfast was okay. It does have limited parking underground. Staff are friendly and helpful. I only ate in the hotel for an evening meal on one occasion. If you are vegetarian, I would not recommend the salads. I did receive a refund and a free alternative meal, but I would have preferred the lettuce to have been washed before being served to me.

The location of the hotel is sublime, couldn't be any closer to the beach with amazing sea views, provided you get a room with a sea view of course. Unfortunately we didn't have the luxury of a window let alone a sea view, we were greeted with 4 walls and a small "sky light", our room was in the 800's, couldn't say if they are all the same within that wing but ask the question, especially if you are claustrophobic you will feel very uncomfortable. The room size was also pretty narrow and small, not worth the money I spent. No room service, no mini bar either.
As far as the hotel goes, its very dated inside, if they invested in the hotel and updated the decor to something modern, it could be something spectacular. The pool and spa facilities are ok and the gym seemed to have an ok range of equipment, I'd say enough to cover all muscle groups again, investment here would attract more people.
Parking will cost you £20 per night, or £15 at the NCP across the road.
