Everything was excellent! Perfect location. Highly recommended. We came to London for my birthday and stayed for one night in this hotel. Everything was excellent: location is one of the best possible (Buckingham Palace is ~450 meters away, Big Ben - less than a kilometer way), exterior and interior of the hotel is really beautiful, classy, rooms are quite big,...

I booked an executive double room for a two night break. The location of the hotel is a hidden gem. A step or two away from Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament. The hotel is all you would expect from a 4-star hotel. Good quality service and high quality fixtures and fittings Disappointing room size though. I...

Rooms were cold, staff was horrible. We had guests with us and we were there for official government duty. Our guests stuck at the elevator for 40 minutes. Staff was so slow responding to the event. They were distant, and did not realize how serious the situation was. After waiting for minutes and literally went crazy to have "the engineer"...

My fiance worked at this swanky hotel 21 years ago, so we thought it'd be fun to stay there one of our evenings in London. This was one of the more expensive hotels during our trip, but worth it for a night. Staff--from doormen to front desk to servers in the lounge--were all top-notch, couldn't be better. We felt welcomed...

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.
