Fodor's Review

At this small, exclusive hotel in a discreet cul-de-sac, ample natural light brightens contemporary-style rooms. Guest rooms are decorated in bright, clean shades with elegant silk throws and polished wood furniture. The bar is a delight—don't even think about staying here without dropping in for a cocktail—and the cigar and cognac garden is a pleasingly retro addition. Chef Nigel Mendham's Thirty Six restaurant makes delicious meals out of classical English flavors; appealingly enough, he also eschews modern kitchen gadgetry as much as possible, in favor of traditional techniques. However, the hotel's real trump card is the location—just a hop and a skip from Piccadilly and Green Park, yet tucked away enough that it feels peaceful.
