Great hotel close to everything
I recently planned a surprise trip to London for my spouse and wanted a hotel close to all the major attractions: The Grand at Trafalgar Square did not disappoint! After hearing stories from friends (many of whom have lived in London in the past) about small beds, tiny rooms, missing amenities, etc, I arrived expecting the minimum. Alas, I was very happy to find everything I would expect from a comfortable 3 or 4 star hotel back home in the States. Comfortable, clean, and quiet room, sitting chair, desk (with another chair), plenty of lights, more than enough electric outlets and charging (USB) ports, air conditioning, toiletries, towels, etc.
And let's not forget the proximity to the attractions: The tube was a block away. Although we walked to most destinations, most less than 20 or 25 minutes away. Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, 10 Downing Street, London Eye, Covent Garden, West End, theaters, and more.
