We are huge fans of Covent Garden Hotel, but stayed here on a recent trip when the Covent Garden was full. The decor is similarly wonderful, and the rooms here might be larger. But -- this is full on Soho -- noisy and overtly sexy rather than discreet.... The bar scene here is loud -- the bar has entrances on both sides of the room, making it a thoroughfare, and is off a street filled with clubs, so this buzz seems purposeful. We were disappointed to find that the library and drawing rooms -- a wonderful exclusive sanctuary for guests at Covent Garden Hotel -- was completely taken over by street traffic; we could not even find a place to sit down on a weeknight - in this hotel, there is really no quiet common spot for guests.
And -- when I went to find cookies at the minibar, I was pretty surprised by the "fun packages" available (I didn't mind, but suffice to say, I dont' think these were at the minibar at Covent Gardens!)
So -- this is a fun, buzzy place, with the same terrific decor and personal service, but for a middle aged couple looking for gentler romance, I would try one of the sister hotels first.
