We stayed here for 8 days in February, we upgraded to a suite in tower two to get access to the executive lounge. The extra cost of to upgrade to a suite was offset by free food all day and drinks between 6 & 8pm. You also have the option to have breakfast at Rhodes in Residence if you fancy it.
The Grosvenor House has real wow factor everywhere you go within both towers. All the public areas lounges restaurants and bars were amazing.
The level of service is second to none and all the staff were amazingly helpful. It was my 50birthdayhay when we were there and I received a complimentarytry bottle Champagne and a wonderful hand made chocolate cake along with a card from the management.
Our suite was excellent with all the usual amenities you would expect in a 5 star hotel room. It had a bathroom and a separate toilet. The huge bed was extremely comfortable and there was a great selection of pillows to choose from.
We used the level 5 lounge on a few occasions for lunch and instead of an evening meal when we had dined out in the afternoon. We ate in the hotel a couple of times once at Rhodes Mezzanine which was one of the best meals I have ever had absolutely exquisite. Again as it was my birthday I received a complimentary selection of petit fours after our meal. We had a few quiet evenings in Bar 44 on the 44th floor for a relaxed evening , we also went to Siddharta lounge as well as Buddha Bar for something a bit more up tempo.
The Grosvenor has 14 restaurants to choose from including 2 with Michelin Star patronage. They are a tad expensive but the quality really up there with the best.
Our only gripe with the hotel was that the swimming pools and sun decks only got the sun for a few hours each day at that time of year, by 1pm the pools were in the shade. This was no real problem as you have the use of the facilities at the Le Royal Meridien hotel which we used on quite a few days. We also ate at one of the restaurants there in the evening. The grounds and beach area of the Meridiene are wonderful and you can always find a quiet spot to sunbathe.
The hotel is situated in the marina area and is in a reasonably quiet area but as with all city hotels there is some traffic noise. It is close to the beach and the “the Walk”. There are some shops and restaurants in the marina and with the walk being not too far you have a decent choice when eating out. However if you are not eating in one of the international hotels there is no alcohol available
For serious shopping the larger malls are some distance away but the Metro system is cheap and efficient and taxis are not too expensive.
We went here as it was my 50th birthday treat and to be honest it was quite expensive for food and drinks in the hotel. We tried to get the best use of the executive lounge sor lunches ot a light evening meal if we had eaten out during the day, drinks were free from 6-8pm. A beer in the hotel as about £8 and drinks with mixers about the same drink prices were roughly the same at all the bars and restaurants. A light lunch or evening meal will set you back about £60 without drinks and a full a la carte dinner would probably be double that without drinks. We really liked the the Grosvenor it was without doubt an amazing experience staying there and was well worth it.
