Great Location, Great Front Desk, That's About It
St. George's is about 4 blocks from Oxford St tube, so that was a nice surprise. The woman at the front desk was welcoming and friendly. She checked on the status of my room and made checking in a breeze. The room itself was dingy and the shampoo and lotion bottles were open (lids were nearby). The bed was definitely old and worn out. The internet was sporadic at best and would only work for about 5 minutes at a time. The tv lost reception 6-7 times in a two hour period, which was also frustrating. I'm not sure if there are smoking rooms still available, but when I came back to the hotel after dinner, the smell of cigarette smoke filled the hallway of the 9th floor. Also, the next day when trying to check-out, I had difficulty leaving my room. They were painting the hallway, but only the part of the wall surrounding my door and there was wet paint everywhere. Navigating through the door and hall was extremely difficult with two large suitcases.
