First room I had was the size of a thimble. Upgraded to a King sweet for the last couple of days and it was fantastic. Staff is great. They sometimes have a happy hour. Property is lovely and right next to Russel square tube station (when it is running.)

Such an awesome hotel, with an even better team of staff! We'll definitely be back. The hotel is so beautiful, such a cool historic building. Designed by Charles Fitzroy Doll, who also designed the Titanic dining room. So many interesting details all throughout the hotel. We stayed in a queen room on a long layover from LHR. The room was small (as expected) but fit our needs. For longer stays we'd definitely book a larger room. It's in a great location in Bloomsbury, not a super touristy area, but only about a mile walk to Covent Garden. Close to public transportation and a delicious bakery called Fortitude, you have to try the cinnamon rolls. All the staff in this hotel were so pleasant and kind. Extremely thankful for Rosemary, who went above and beyond helping us fix an issue where our award booking was cancelled and IHG could not reinstate it. Rosemary contacted IHG for us and made sure they were able to correct it.
