First time I traveled to London from the USA for more than a day trip. I booked a week long stay at 100 Queens Gate Hotel London, Curio by Hilton because it was centrally located and seemed to be a very nice hotel from what I saw online. From the first moment my husband and I arrived at the hotel until we departed, our experience at this property was OUTSTANDING and that's not giving it the credit it's fully due. Upon our arrivalv(which was earlier than the normal Checkin time), are room was ready and so the General Manager of the hotel came to the front desk to greeted us which was wonderful and unusual at the same time as we have never been greeted by the General Manager of any hotel that we've stayed at, and we stay at many many hotels throughout each year. We were given comp vouchers for two free cocktails in their ESQ bar while we wait to get access to our room. Once are room was ready, the front desk attendant Rose who checked personally came to the ESQ to give us our room keys and further information regarding our stay. When I say that we were treated like royalty at this property...... I'm not kidding at all. Within 10 minutes of arrival to our room, we sent a hotel amenity of chocolates which was very much unexpected! We would go on to have regular interactions with the service staff in ESQ Bar each time we dined there as well as the General Manager of Cento who also was present for breakfast each morning on the same room. I very much highly recommend this hotel if your traveling to London or you live in London and want to do a staycation!!!! We will definitely rave about this hotel to the people that we know who are planning trips to London for sure! We will also keep this hotel at the top of our list if and when we return to London.

This hotel was worth it! I immediately felt welcomed walking Into the hotel, Rosie was the one that greeted us and could not have been treated any better. She greeted us very warmly, and was able to tell us about the history of the hotel. The room was clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was really good and enjoyed the crescents! We’ll done by the staff and would definitely recommend! This has been a refreshing stay since my last stay at a different hilton property was not even close to the same experience as this one. Well done by the hotel!
