I booked this hotel last minute as a surprise stay for my boyfriend's birthday. I picked it based on the location and reviews. And I'm so glad I did it. The stay was fantastic. The person who looked after us the whole stay was Mitchel - a very helpful, charming and very well mannered young professional. He showed around the... More

We stayed for two nights last week for my birthday. I was impressed when Lisa rang the week before to check how she could make our visit more pleasurable. I had certain requests for my husband's needs and these were met. On arrival we were greeted by very pleasant staff at reception and Katarina checked us in. She is new... More

This hotel combines sophistication and charm with excellent service and a warm welcome. Situated 200m from Trafalgar Sq it is right in the middle of the 'tourist's guidebook of London'; easy walking to Buckingham Palace, Whitehall, Number 10, Big Ben, The Strand etc etc so whatever you want to visit is close to hand. And there are 2 underground stations... More

My partner took me away to London for a birthday treat and this hotel was more than a treat - it was probably the best hotel I have ever been to. It's location for central London was first class; the accommodation was excellent with brilliant views over the river; the service was second to none as was the food. All... More

Everything about this hotel is first class. The rooms with a view are well worth the extra. We were on the 8th floor with glorious views of the London Eye and the City beyond. Bed was wonderfully comfortable and night turn down provided a bottle of water each night plus a chocolate. Elemis toiletries were replenished daily and there was... More

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood 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.
