Booked the Royal Horseguards for a 2 night weekend break. The hotel location is great 2 minutes walk from The Embankment tube station and right on the Thames virtually opposite the London Eye. The staff at the hotel are really good, very polite and happy to help, particularly the door staff, concierge and reception desk. We had booked a Executive...

Very clean and welcoming upon arrival. Staff helpful and obliging. Pampered is a word I could use often in this review but believe me it would not be overused. We dropped bags off early and then went site seeing knowing that we would be contacted as soon as the room was ready even if it was before the usual 3pm...

My sister and I stayed here on the first leg of our vacation. The front desk staff was exceptional. I had a problem, not related to the hotel, and the staff helped me resolve it quickly and with a lot less stress than if I had to solve the problem without their help. It wasn't just 1 staff member either;...

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
