PS. I thought the Grosvenor House was a dump [Again - how on earth did you get kicked out; the place is a hole]; although it can now claim infamy as a feature...

I agree - though I have never actually stayed the whole night there - I go to about 5 awards ceremonies there each year (next one on 23rd October) - and they are always late nights. They always hike the rates even higher on Awards nights.

I always prefer to walk back up Park Lane and stay at the Cumberland Grand - yes I know that this is an even bigger hole - but when I stay in a hole I like to pay hole prices.
