We spent the night in this splendid accommodation and came away very pleased. Located in the Mayfair area of London, a stay here puts you in close proximity to Hyde Park (perfect for runners), the Marble Arch Tube stop (4-blocks) and Oxford Street shopping.
In a sense, London is like Las Vegas or New York: one doesn't spend much time in the room. After a long day on your feet or in business meetings, having a comfortable abode and bed to return to are bonuses. This Hyatt certainly fits the bill.
All rooms are outfitted with appealing, earth-toned décor, premium bedding that includes high thread-count sheets, flat-screen televisions and large soaking tubs with powerful shower heads. Standard rooms offer views of an interior courtyard, which aren't as scenic as the street-side quarters that overlook Portman Square, but more quiet. If you can afford the few extra bucks to stay on the Regency Club floor, go for it. The Club is staffed throughout the day and evening with friendly and helpful personnel. And, the lounge remains open 24/7 with snacks and drinks. Continental breakfasts are also provided as well as an evening "happy hour" full of hot "bites" and cocktails in this exclusive area. After checking out of our room, we relaxed in the Club lounge for several hours watching television, eating snacks and enjoying a cocktail until leaving the hotel around 5pm to catch a 7pm train.
Churchill's 24 hour fitness center has seen some new life breathed in it. Brands stocked include Precor (cycles and cross trainers), Powerjog (treadmills) and Concept II (rowers). The free weight options still remain limited. The options are limited to some dumbbell sets and a balance ball.
Runners able to jog during daylight hours should head to Hyde Park: it offers the best routes in London.
Swimmers and those looking for a larger venue will have to review our off-site options as the Churchill doesn't own a pool. The closest health club with a lapper is Virgin Active Mayfair.
Nearest Tube stop: Marble Arch (approx. 4 blocks)
