My friends and I spent New Year’s Eve in London and stayed at the Mayfair Townhouse for three nights. It was a great experience. The hotel is centrally located near Buckingham Palace so it was easy to get around. The rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable. The best part, however, was the hotel staff. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, and they were always willing to assist with any questions or concerns. The concierge was great helping us take the Tube. I’d like to give a special shout out to the bar staff, especially T, Randy, Duane, Milad, Sami, and Dani.

I reserved a superior room. However, it was extremely small, literally claustrophobic. I can only imagine what it can be in a standard room. Being an Architect, I understand very well what an old building is, but their standards are low, even for Japan. Pictures on the website are misleading. Be aware of the carpet in the room. Breakfast is ok, very basic. When I woke up at 8 am, I asked to check out one night earlier. According to the young lady manager, it was not an option. However, I had no intention to explain and discuss the issue. I was traveling, very tired and with substantial jet lag very busy with my job, and with zero intention of discussing this kind of issue. Instead, I would simply check out, but the young lady manager forced me to stay, and she moved into a suite (or penalty of the second night). She told me if I wanted to check out early, I should have talked to her immediately after my check-in on the day of my arrival (By the way, traveling from the USA, I checked in at 2:30 am, and I was exhausted) I explained to her that the claustrophobic feeling built on me after sleeping there one night and also after using the extremely TINY toilet. Moving to a suite may sound good, but at that point, I really didn't care. When you travel, you don't want to experience situations like this, and nobody wants to face discussion with the front desk personnel. I don't care about a suite. I would be more than happy with a truly superior room. I believe she has no idea that this was the point. Probably, she has not traveled enough in life to understand consumers' needs and physical conditions when they travel from another continent and need to work. Managers should be able to understand differences on customers profiles and needs.
