Positives - Very friendly and helpful staff - Luxurious fixtures and fittings Negatives - Small room to the point of being cramped - View facing train tracks and Westfield loading bays - Staff not aware of offers with restaurants - Passing train noise can be heard (Eurostar, Southeastern) Neutral - Wifi was patchy but became more consistent and reliable I feel I should elaborate on the small room size. London hotels rooms are small but this is the smallest I've stayed in and it's in Stratford. West and Central London hotels rooms have been bigger. The ceiling height is standard and not the 3m height on the residential floors. The fixtures and fittings are of an extremely high quality, well designed and aesthetically pleasing. The use of a sliding (rather than a standard) door to the bathroom saves the room from being unpleasantly constricted. This is not a destination hotel as nothing really stands out and the smallness and industrial views (we were on 3rd floor) detract from the stay. Should have a policy of putting guests in rooms facing the other way before allocating rooms facing that outlook. Allegra restaurant on the 7th floor can be considered a destination restaurant but The Stratford is not a destination hotel even if it is in an iconic building. Besides there are other hotels within 2mins walk of Allegra if that is your raison d'être.
