I recently stayed for a long weekend at the DoubleTree Tower of London while tagging along on a business trip with my husband.
LOCATION: Steps away from the Tower Hill tube stop. Easy walk to Tower of London, Tower Bridge, and the Thames. There are pubs and restaurants in the area, all within walking distance. The neighborhood is very quiet compared to the West End.
ROOMS: Rooms are of course tiny and you have to pay more for a room with a view of the river and the bridge. The bath contains a shower stall, no bathtub. The amenities are good quality. Plenty of room on the vanity for toiletries. Our king bed was very comfortable and featured a "pillow bar" with various levels of fluffiness.
FOOD: We upgraded to the Executive Room and were able to visit the main floor lounge for breakfast, snacks and drinks. Breakfast was excellent, and they put out hot items and cold.
ENTERTAINMENT: Go to the rooftop "Sky Lounge" it features an amazing view. We had perfect weather and enjoying a stunning view of nighttime London.
STAFF: I found that the staff were attentive and professional. No issues during our stay. The concierge got us tickets to the play at the Globe Theatre (also very close)! Excellent!
In all I thought that the hotel was a great value. I normally book a flat for longer stays but I think the DoubleTree will be a top contender for hotel stays because of the location and walkability.
