For a 2-3 nights stay in west central London it may be one of the hidden gems. In good weather location is at walking distance from Paddington, where quite likely you are to arrive from Heathrow anyway. To the parks it is not more than 150metres, and less than 15 minutes great walk to Royal Albert Hall. With the street plan intelligence Portobello road is also very near, so is Notting Hill. To the east, from Oxford street shopping you are with less than 10 quid black taxi ride. If you have one hour, and the weather is good, take a walk through the parks, up to Westminster, with a must green grass sit-in lunch at Green Park (sandwich bars aplenty in Piccadily street alongside). If you think of value for money, imagine 'equivalent' of Hilton in Park Lane, with 1/4 price and the room at 1/3 of the size, but all amenities (bar fitness/pool) on par. Bathrooms are marble, rooms 'Ralf Lauren'esque', not designer signed but fabrics much better than at any 3-star in central London I recall. Ask for tea in the lobby area, and land in deep armchair and look around - this area is exemplary 1920s interior, post WWI London, cute. One last thing - breakfast easily 4 star but the breakfast room is pretty cramped, so come early or late.
