Stayed here Sat 20th - Mon 22nd April for the London Marathon. Booked via Booking.com. £258 for 2 nights - not bad for central London & cheaper than our Mercure base in Southwark last year. Hotel is modern, clean and very pleasant to be in and around. Great location right by Tower tube station & the Tower of London. Rooms not huge but OK for a weekend. Well equipped ( Applemac in room instead of TV & free WiFi - a nice touch). Bathrooms clean, modern with shower ( no bath). No views ( high buildings all around). As ever its the staff that make or break a place & this team were top notch. Great service & pleasant with it. The hotel made a lot of effort to accomodate Marathon Runners ( special menus, early breakfasts etc)Had a meal in the cafe restaurant on Sunday evening - special offer with 2 glasses of wine free £55 for two. Excellent food & service. There is a stunning roof top bar on the 12th floor with very special views over the Tower, Tower Bridge & the Shard etc. Great place to unwind - but be warned, £10 for a medium glass of so so red wine !! Fortunately a free glass of champers for my wife on production of finishers medal helped the pain !
Dont think you could go far wrong here for location, service, smart environment & all round feel good experience. Acid test - would we go back? Absolutely !
