Stayed at LM Picadilly this weekend and wanted to give a short review of the hotel. Location: It doesn't get more central to tourist sites than Picadilly Circus. Aside from the Tate Modern, I spent most of my time walking the city Transport: HEX from LHR to Paddington took a bit longer than desired, there was a train problem that was initially thought to take 45 minutes to resolve which ended up only 20 minutes. From Paddington, its 6 stops south on the Bakerloo line to Picadilly Circus.I remembered to bring my Oyster card. Had not used it in a while, so I was happy to see there was still some money on it. I found that the closest exit is #2. Once on the street, walk up Picadilly to the hotel, if you end up on Regent St, turn left on Air St and right onto Picadilly and the hotel is a few doors in. Reception: Three people on staff, but I must have arrived at a busy time, as there were a few people there. I had pre-requested an early check-in (made in the notes when I booked my ticket via SPG.com), and was surprised that they let me get my room that early (never had that happen at Sheraton Park Lane, but it may have been as I am a Plat now, and only a Gold for my SPL stays). They gave me a Club room, briefly told me about the amenities of the place (pool, Mezzanine level Club lounge...) As I was happy to get a room early, I did not ask about Suites availability. I was asked what I would like for my Plat amenity, I was too tired to say anything but 'I'll take the points!' Next time I will ask what the local amenity would be. The room: I got had a King bed facing the inside of the building. This may not sound nice, but given the noise in the area, I would not look too badly on this aspect as I spent very little time in the room (its London, after all(. Bed was nice, but I am not sure if it was my imagination, I think the bed was on the short side (though it could have been the king-sized pillows). The room was spacious and certainly comfortable. As for furnishings, there was a large LCD TV on top of a chest of drawers (this may have been a minibar, but to be honest, I did not open it). 2 grey fabric chairs for sitting and a nice wooden desk. The walk-in closet held the room safe, bathrobes, slippers snacks. I liked the bathroom, nice marble sinktop. Bathtub had the old style taps (and hand held shower). Best feature of the bathroom was the towel-warmer (I love them!) The standard LM bath products were present, as well as a plastic case for vanity items and 2 bottles of water. The internet speed was good and I do appreciate the 110V plug. I did pack my converter, but this meant one less thing to dig out of my bag. Food and Beverage: Club Lounge food was nice. There is an elevator that goes to the Mezzanine - it is separate from the pair of elevators if you are trying to figure out which one goes directly to M. The other ones go to the Ground floor and its one flight of stairs up to the Lounge. Breakfast was a good and tasty assortment of muffins (glass shelf on the right), cereals (center of glass shelf), breads, pastries, fresh fruit, 3 types of juices, smoked salmon (yum!), cold cuts, an espresso machine and stocked beverage cabinet. Afternoon snacks included sweets, spicy wings, crisps, cocktails, reds (Pinot Noir, CabSav and Merlot) and white (SBlanc and 2 others). Snacks were very good and a nice way to spend 30 minutes to decompress from a day of walking. Checkout: Speedy. Also, the agent who was assisting me wanted to double check if I had ordered from the Terrace (their restaurant). As I said 'the what?', she probably figured it was not my charge and said she would remove it. Definitely know it was not me when I saw that the food item was poached egg (the one way I don't like it served)! Conclusion: Overall, I really enjoyed my stay. I would have stayed (like I usually do) at the Sheraton, but I wanted to try a new place. This one fit the bill. I am thinking about coming back to stay here in July, and hopefully I will be able to check out the pool and health club (and maybe even get a suite!) Other notes:I posted another thread about LM's Unlocking Art and I was very happy to get free admission to the Tate Modern's exhibit. My only beef (and its a minor one) was that I asked for a late checkout. I came back to a housecleaner in my room on the phone. When she heard me come in, she quickly came in and asked if I was leaving soon as she was about to make the bed. This was followed in 10 minutes by another attendant coming in to the room to ask if I needed anything like more water. No big deal, but as I was trying to get a move on out of the hotel, I thought it was a bit bizarre.
