What was good and what was bad?

GOOD
- Elegant design of the room .
- Very attentive, smiling staff. Staff clearly has benne very well hired and trained. People are proud and happy to work fot this property. And I love to have a big smile when seeing the staff in the lift and other places of the hotel saying a big : "Hello, how is your stay with us so far?". And the answer is: excellent, indeed.
- Very good breakfast.
- Superb indoor pool
- Not central location, but easy access with the Jubilee line
- Great view from the sky bar

BAD
- Surroundings of the hotel are not exactly engaging (looks currently more like a construction site/ a parking of a supermarket rather than a luxury hotel): trees would be more than welcomed

Value for $ or IHG Rewards Club Points? Would you return?
Yes, definitely
