Breakfast has wide ranging selection. Only point was that the rail system can be felt in the room. I was in floor 5 but from around...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 January 2017

I stayed in this hotel in December, traveling with a colleague/friend who had business in our London office. We chose the hotel based on proximity to our office and her previous experience with the property. We flew from the states overnight, so our room was not yet ready when we arrived at the hotel at 8am. However the staff was...

This is an incredible hotel right in the heart of London. We walked to Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the London eye. I cant think of a better location if you are first timers in London without a vehicle. The Hotel was amazing and the food was great in the restaurant.

Warning - if you book via booking.com you potentially will get one of the old / unrenovated rooms! There is absolutely no mention of this when booking and the pictures shown are of the new rooms.

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.
