Historical Traveller Reviews of The Westbury Hotel
Stay elsewhere!from su2320
Shame about the breakfastfrom Juan45
The room was good, but tiny. In fact I began to wonder if we had been given a single room, as there was only one bathrobe, but the booking was clearly for a double, and there were two of everything else. Well furnished and clean, with good airconditioning.
But to have to stand in a queue for 15 minutes to get into the breakfast room is ridiculous for a four star hotel! Maybe this was something to do with the renovation works, but I couldn't see where else we could have gone. The breakfast itself was good, when we finally got to it.
Clean average hotel but great locationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The polo bar again is clean and nice but old fashioned (was expecting the decor to be more up to date than it was ) we were charged £22.50 for 2 bloody mary's which gives you an idea of prices they charge in the hotel !! On the whole the hotel was very average and I guess the prices they charge is reflected in the location, just a 5 mins walk from Oxford Circus station and central to pretty much everything e.g Selfridges, Regent Street, Leicester Square, China town, Soho and Covent Garden.
I think I will be trying somewhere else to stay next time I'm in London but if I was stuck I probably would go back if I got a good deal, ( I paid £99 per night for the room ).
Good Location, worth Staying if you get a good dealfrom lisa_a
We went up to the room, which was clean but small. My opinion was that the rooms needed some refurbishment.
Overall the hotel was fine and in a perfect location! The hotel bar was a little quite (we prefer a buzzing bar) but the breakfast was lovely. We got a good deal on the hotel and paid £115 for the room,vat and continental breakfast. I would stay at this hotel again but only at this price. there are better hotels about for the figure of £140 + (which most websites charge this hotel at)
Love London, Love the Westbury Mayfairfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The location was Excellent, staff friendly, the hotel itself was clean and the room was larger than expected for a city hotel (I had prepared myself for a tiny little cave based on some of the reviews).
The doormen & conceirge are top notch - going out of their way to be friendly and helpful.
As the other reviews indicated, make sure your breakfast is included - it is very convenient and quick as it is a buffet.
This is definitely a great hotel for tourists who want to take advantage of all London has to offer. In that regard, seek out the assistance of the conceirge. These gentlemen take care of everything and would not accept tips (we typically don't stay at hotels w/ a conceirge so we didn't realize that tipping was not appropriate until after we tried to - it was politely refused).
I also noticed many art & antique dealers there. The shopping in the immediate vicinity is high end, but you are in walking distance from tons of shops, pubs, restaurants, picadilly, soho, etc. too.
My only complaint is that is was 90 degrees and sunny every day - - not the London weather we expected :) I came back from London tanner than some friends that went to the caribbean!
t beat the location and should be in the top 50 at leastfrom Geoff555
Good location for serious shoppersfrom nearywaldron
The staff are pleasant and the public rooms ok. We stayed in a "Superior King" room, which was neutrally decorated and a decent size, though the bathroom is quite small.
It is a perfectly pleasant place to stay, but you are paying a premium for location: it doesn't have much atmosphere, and if I had had to pay the rack rate (about £240 per night) I would have gone somewhere like Hazlitt's or the Covent Garden hotel. For £140 from lastminute, I thought it was reasonable value.
Nice hotelfrom Paulo_Almeida
The hotel is good. But since the price is high, I must complaint about having to wait in the lobby to be seated for breakfast - 3/4 mornings had to wait. Maybe the easter holiday is to blame. I really couldn't care less. The hotel should be prepared to receive tourists and the breakfast room is just too small. Not enough tables for the size of the hotel. And i have had better breakfasts in cheaper hotels.
The hotel staff is very polite. Yet, they'd better get some help during breakfast time, because sometimes it seemed they couldn't handle it and, again, had to wait for a while for toasts or just milk.
The rooms aren't large, but they're ok. Everything is clean and the carefully put. The decor is old fashion, but ok.
The hotel location is good, 5 to 10 minute walk to Picadilly. Although you can walk to Picadilly, it'd be much nicer to have the subway/underground closer.
An impressive 4* hotel!from A TripAdvisor Member
Unfortunately, at check in, there was no booking for us (through no fault of the hotel) but the efficient reception and reservation staff was very quick to put this right for us. We were also upgraded from a Supreme Queen to "a bigger room with a bigger bed"!
On entering our room we were very surprised at just how small this "bigger" room was...I'd hate to imagine the size of the Supreme Queen. That said, everything in the room was of an excellent standard. Carpets, wallpaper and other fixtures and fittings were all in immaculate condition. (This high standard was also visible in the hotel corridors.)
As far as noise levels go, we didn't have any real problems at The Westbury. Traffic noise was minimal (great considering it's central location) and on occasions we could hear the sound of the next room's TV, but this was never later than 10pm.
In summery, if you are looking for a high quality hotel with a very central location (Oxford Street and Regent Street just minutes walk away) you can't go far wrong with The Westbury. The only thing we would have liked to have seen was a slightly bigger room for our money.
great location, but small roomsfrom vicki1812
Top Local Tips for London
London Pass We bought a London Pass (without transportation) from the visitors center near Picadilly Circus. The pass isn't activated until you use it, so you can buy it ahead of time. It saved us $$$ over paying for the attractions individually and we were able to proceed thru the lines quickly at the attractions.
Taxis Don't let cab drivers fool you by taking you the long way home!! Always do a deal after hours
London travel cards Get yourself a travel card (www.tfl.gov.uk will tell you where to buy them) for the buses. We got a one day one for £3.50, which saved us a good bit of money - each trip is normally £2 per journey.
