We were bould to have a good time here, not least because we also had V.I.P. seats for Muse. This hotel is very close to the 02 arena.
My Spire Elite Ambassador thingy whatsit was acknowledged upon
arrival and we were pleased with our room upgrade. The three members of staff who deserve a mention are Olivia and Sylvia from Romania and Moldova respectively, and Emma at breakfast who told us she could make the best Cappuccino we had ever tasted, and did. There was also a lovely lady at breakfast who laughed very much at my humour, and actually asked if i was a Comedian, which was flattering.
Issues in our opinion. Our pillows were FAR too soft. We only found this out at arround 01.30 when we went to bed.And as we were only there for one night, we simply suffered. Also, the lower bar ( Sky bar was closed) was far too bright and the sofas were so deep that you almost ended up horizontal when you tried to lean back. We also felt that the whole of Canary Wharf could see in.
This is a brand new hotel of course, and it will need time to find its mojo. But it was good enough. [Less]
