We stayed for one night on the weekend of the London Marathon. Although we had to queue to check in, it was quick and as many staff as possible were manning the (very long) desk. Amie, the receptionist, was fast in sorting out a room for us and explaining the hotel's facilities. Our room rate, incidentally, didn't include breakfast at the hefty price of £21.50 per person.
There is a large bank of lifts to take you up to your floor. We were on the 6th floor in a room overlooking the "foyer". As others have said, it's a little bizarre not looking over a road/the town but it was very peaceful and conducive to a good night's rest. The room was larger than any other that we've been in when visiting London. Everything was in there - every Sky channel (a luxury as we don't have it at home!), tea and coffee making facilities, Dead Sea smellies, a separate shower in the bathroom, mini bar.
The bed was comfortable, there was a separate chair and then another at the desk. Perfect for reading your book!
We didn't eat in the hotel as we were meeting friends in central London, but the hotel was perfectly positioned for getting easily into the centre. Plus, the hotel was only across the bridge from the Palace of Westminster, Westminster Abbey etc.
We didn't eat breakfast in the hotel as we knew that we could find breakfast cheaper outside the hotel. Maybe next time if we could get a decent bed and breakfast rate.
Would we stay here again? Definitely!
