Renaissance Chancery Court: Amenities & Wi-Fi

The amenities for a deluxe room at the Renaissance Chancery Court Hotel is fairly standard with other London hotel rooms. One thing missing was the ubiquitous pants press. No matter, I never got quite into the habit of using it. The coffee service includes a variety of coffee and teas but the bonus was the complimentary cookies which made for the perfect quick snack.

In the bathroom the amenities provided by The White Company is from their bath and body collection. Both soaps and bath/shower gel are offered whereas most hotels only have either available. A sewing kit, shoe shine and shower cap completed the set. The mini bar secured in the television armoire was available for a fee. For you neat freaks there is an iron and ironing board tucked away and more than enough wooden and silk-covered hangars for two to three hotel guests.

Only two of each bath, hand and washcloth towels were placed in the bathroom. But with housekeeping servicing twice a day, the towels were refreshed nonetheless even if they were not left on the floor or in the tub to let housekeeping know they should be replaced.

In room Wi-Fi was available which I purchased for a fee of £75 (US$120) for seven days. This was unlimited service and a bargain compared to the iPad international plan. The iPad options from AT&T were expensive at $24.99 (20MB), $59.99 (50MB), $119.99 (100MB) and $199.99 (200MB). My hotel was located near the business district and I had actually purchased the 50MB plan before leaving the States. But there was no signal. I immediately contacted AT&T (with some effort) to cancel the plan. So in a way it kind of worked out since I would have burned through the 50MB quickly. The Wi-Fi signal at the hotel was always strong and consistent.

Other room amenities included an electronic safe and a soft luxurious duvet. Four drawers with a dressing mirror was situated next to the closet. The windows kept any noise from outside traffic to a minimum; if there was any noise in the hallway it rarely carried into the room.
