Pros: Staff fetched taxis to the front door very quickly and with a smile --I was feeling too ill to hail one in the street myself.
Cons: Problem with bath taps. Almost impossible to turn on and then couldn't turn them off --just escaped a flood ! (

Great LocationPosted Dec 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
Perfect location for Central London sightseeing and a short subway ride into the city for business. Surrounded by great bars and restaurants and situated perfectly for West End shopping. Only (slight) disappointment is that the hotel bar doesn't stay open later than 11.15ish.

Worst hotel room everPosted Nov 21, 2013
Pros: I did not like anything except the location, as it was near my destinations.
Cons: Absolutely everything could be improved, and especially the finishes and cleanliness of the room.
Location: It was near the Langham, I went there to hang out.
I might say that this is the worst hotel room I have ever stayed in. When I arrived at 10 pm, the bed looked like someone had already sat on it, the wood in the closet was unfinished, the hair dryer was in the closet (as opposed to the bathroom), there was scratched wood everywhere, the bed skirt was half up on the bed, the lamp was jammed into the curtain, the room was jammed with excess furniture, the windows were filthy, oh and I was assigned the room next to an elevator, which was buzzing all night. In addition, they started banging noisy CONSTRUCTION at 10 am the next morning on my floor. Finally, there was no where to print my boarding pass upon checking out, they gave me issues when I asked them to do it.

Hotel is conveniently located. The staff are excellent. The hotel is past its prime and in need of a makeover.

central London hotelPosted Oct 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
St George's Hotel is very centrally located near Oxford Circus. Rooms are small but clean. Staff are keen but could be better trained (English was not usually first language and meanings got mixed up). Bar on 15th floor has great panoramic view of that area of London.

Great location but old hotelPosted Oct 20, 2013
Pros: Location Location Location, and complimentary cookies, water and newspaper each day.
Cons: The room is old and dated and there could be better lighting.
Location: Retail is your best bet.
I lived in London for 10 years so I know the city well. The hotel is a 2 min walk to Oxford Circus and 10 min walk to Piccadilly Circus - excellent for those looking for retail opportunities or want to take advantage of the usual tourist attractions. The hotel is also around a 15 min walk to Regent's Park. For those looking for a more authentic/charming/rustic experience, this is not the place for you. The hotel is quite old/dated and doesn't look to have been renovated in a long time. That being said, the room is decently comfortable (if not a bit dark), and there was complimentary water (both sparkling and plain), biscuits and bathroom products replaced each day...also got a complimentary newspaper each morning which was nice. The hotel claims to offer a "discount" rate for LA Fitness (a gym that is a 5 min walk away) but the discount rate is around £15 per session, which seems extortionate so I would recommend going to the LA Fitness website and registering for a free 3 day trial session instead.

Central location with bad or no facilities.Posted Oct 13, 2013
Pros: Centrally located, good room service, helpful staff.
Cons: Facilities in general, add a gym (or lower the four star ranking-not at all reflective), non-included breakfast, room door should prop open.
Location: Lots of Oxford circus big department stores (H&M, Ferragamo, Top Shop, etc.) If you've been to NYC oxford circus has a Times Square feel to it.
This hotel is very central-a two block walk from the hustle and bustle of Oxford circus. However, for a centrally located "4 star hotel," it was not nearly nice looking enough nor did it have the amenities to be considered four star. This hotel did not contain a gym and thus any type of steam room/sauna, hot tub or pool. If you're a four star hotel you should have AT LEAST a gym. Secondly, the hotel just doesn't look nice enough to be four star . The outside looks a bit dodgy (the driveway could be nicer), the door to my room was scratched and heavy (they need to include something in all the rooms to be able to prop open the door) and the ceiling lights weren't working. The concierge staff was nice/helpful and the room service was great-deluxe food. But, for all the money you're paying for a not so great "four star" hotel, the breakfast should not be an additional charge. It was.
