February 2016, Our Afternoon Visit After our lunch at Benares in February 2016 – please see review on IF– we visited the Metropolitan by COMO Hotel in London. || THE LOBBY @ THE METROPOLITAN BY COMO HOTEL || OUR AFTERNOON VISIT || LONDON || ENGLAND || UK || A BEAUTIFUL AND MEMORABLE HOTEL, SERVICE AND VENUE || HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ESPECIALLY THEIR COMO SHAMBHALA SIGNATURE OFFERINGS || FEB. 2016 || by UggBoy UggGirl, on Flickr We made a quick stop to warm up at the Lobby Lounge, because it was a bit cold and raining during our February afternoon while out and about. We had already some experience with COMO, having stayed at the Halkin Hotel, just a few steps away. We were impressed by the stylish and whimsical, but comfortable interior design. Would it have been a bright day, the lobby would have been light flooded due to the floor to ceiling windows. The staff members were very discreet, not really visible and arrived just in time when you needed them, like magic, so this was an outstanding experience. Of course they were charming and efficient too. We ordered tea, hot chocolate, a Vital Veg Juice and the Cashew ice cream sundae with walnuts, blueberries and verbena jelly. The juice and sundae were from the COMO Shambala Cuisine Menu. Our juice included locally grown tomatoes, carrots, celery, peppers, cucumber, fennel, pumpkin, parsley, basil and lemon juice. It was delicious. The hot chocolate was rich and the tea again by JING. The sundae was really interesting and the jelly the most unique part. It was refreshing. The textures and flavors worked well together. We didn’t miss “normal” milk based ice cream at this time. The bill was just under 40 GBP (ca. 52 Euro or 58.80 USD). We would return again and we would want to stay at the Metropolitan by COMO Hotel in our future. Would we recommend this venue to a friend? YES! Would we want to visit again this venue in our future? YES!
