The Hideous Gresham Hotel 116 Sussex Gardens , London
I had the unfortunate experienc of staying at hotel for week during Thanksgiving in Novenber 03. The Gresham Hotel was terrible and the staff were rude and inconsiderate and most did not speak english. The bathroom was so small you could bareley move around. There was no closet space the satellite TV is a joke it had 3 channels and two of those were the same with lousy reception. We frequently had to ask for clean towels. The cleaning staff would turn the heat off in the room after they were done cleaning and when we would come back to the room it would be freezing and it would take a long time for the room to warm up again. The room size was tiny. Supposedly the rooms were recently remodeled. Whoever it was, should be shot. The beds were uncomfortable and the room was drafty. The hairdryer was in a desk drawer, from which it could not be moved and used in a convenient place like the bathroom.
The rug in the room was filthy. The coffe and tea service consisted of some no name tea bags and a plastic cup and a tiny spoon and plastic pot with a rusted heating element that appears they salvaged from the trash. The furniture was broken. The hotel was advertised as a superior tourist class hotel. The brochures for this hotel are deceptive. This hotel in reality is a no class budget hotel. I for one will never stay it this dump again and hope nobody else has the unfortunate experience of staying in this dump.
It was a terrible experienceand I will certainly avoid this hotel. It is rated 3 to 4 stars and should have been no more than 2 stars. The hotel is well located but quite dirty. Bathroom is like a box in which you can hardly move. Do not take much luggage: you can not hang your clothes!! Cleaning staff inadequate - we stayed there in December and found a newspaper dd October 16 under the bed!! - and most staff does not speak english. Drinks at the bar are out-of-proportion expensive.
Publicity pictures are impressive but REALITY IS NOT!!

So no Friday should finish without a trip down the pub... or in our case the Beer Garden at the Vauxhall Lightbox.
In the end Katie, Laurence, Liz, Suzi and I all turned up for a bottle of wine each and some street food.
There was also some amazing music playing- well a guy was covering some amazing old school music- wish we could go to a place that just played that kind of music!
... buses!). They served us tea and dinner which were both delicious. After a couple hours of conversation, it was time for us to catch our train back to the house. On the way back, we stopped at King's Cross Station so that we could see Platform 9 3/4! Tomorrow my dad and I are hoping to go see Abbey Road, then go to Camden Market once more. Our cab leaves at 1:00 and we depart from Heathrow airport at 5:00pm. Thank you all again, and ...
... royalty from the past and saw a lot of artifacts, especially the Crown Jewels. While in the museum, Catherine and I sat on the Queen's old-fashioned toilet and had Becca take some funny photos. Towards the end of the tour, we met two Austrian Boy Scouts and we talked about our scouting culture. We also got to see the Tower Bridge, the Globe Theatre, the Millennium Bridge, St. Paul's Cathedral and a lot of little stuff today. I ...
... was a tough decision. I will miss the production, the prom and saying goodbye to one of our students who leaves us this summer to start his adult life, but I think I'll be seeing him again. I'm also missing the leaving presentation to one of our staff who has in the last 2 years gone from TA, to senior TA and is now moving on to her teacher training through schools direct. I am sure she will make an outstanding teacher. We're there any doubt in my mind about not being at school, I'd ...
... and the Gulf Wars. They are also responsible for the security at the Tower. We toured the museum of the Fusiliers and found it to be very interesting. We did finally go and see the Crown Jewels. They really are beautiful, but I think the most fascinating thing is their role in history. Every piece means something to the ruler who is crowned. Whether it be wisdom, justice, mercy or knowledge, each piece has a meaning. The grounds are quite nice to look around and see where the ...
