The location next to Trafalgar Square is perfect. friendly and helpful staff. Perfect bed. Climate in the room was good and I slept like a baby. Room service impeccable and very good food. The risotto was sublime.

Very nice hotel, with rooms that are easily accessible and good service. Within walking distance of many top players, as the center of a star you can achieve a lot from this hotel. Metro charing cross very close, you can have breakfast at many places near the hotel. We only booked the room. Trafalgar Square, Govert Garden, Chinatown, London Eye... More

The location of this hotel is close to perfect. Just a couple of steps to Trafalgar square if you go one way and a few steps more to the Thames if you go the other way. Easy walking distance to many places, good underground access and a lot of buses. The hotel is in an impressive building, very grand. Nice... More

Great location - probably the best thing about this hotel. Decent place - our room was clean and there's an area to work on the first floor. Nothing particularly special, but decent place in an excellent location.

We got a wonderful deal on 3 nights at The Grand. We had really high expectations and was super excited for the great location of the hotel. We arrived in later than we expected and was helped pretty quickly. We took the elevator up to our floor, but upon entering our room we were greeted with a strong smell of... More

Bathrooms were small for americans but appeared to be standard for london. Hotel breakfast was acceptable. The only downside, was that... More

Stayed here New Years eve and New Years Day and in terms of location you cant get much better - Next to Trafalgar Square, tube station and a 5 minute walk down to the embankment. We booked to go to London last minute and didn't purchase tickets for the fireworks display on New Years Eve, luckily the Hotel gave us... More

This hotel is all about its location. Other than that it is very small, but for our needs we weren't in the room a whole lot. We didn't have a get view, but again we were only there to rest our feet which was easy to do because the location was right in Trafalgar Square.

Just returned from a fantastic stay at The Grand Trafalgar Square and I cannot find any fault with the hotel. The staff were attentive, the room large enough for a family of four and a location to die for. We were actually in the zone for the New Year Fireworks and the hotel gave us complementary tickets to see them.... More

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise a 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.
