We stayed for 2 nights on business. The lobby is nice and clean, check in was fairly straightforward. We were upgraded to a larger room. The room itself was clean but dated, reminescent of a university dormitary. The bathroom was small and claustrophobic and I banged my head on the door repeatedly when getting up off the toilet. The balcomy and views were nice. Breakfast was also quite good, better than other Hilton's I have stayed at. Drinks and bar food was average and relatively expensive. The complimentary ferry service is a nice touch, it runs on time and takes 3 minutes to get across the Thames to Canary Wharf. The health club is fairly large with a nice range of equipment and free weights. The sauna is large, although the pool is small and more suited for children.There is no doubt the hotel needs a bit of an upgrade and the rooms are really a let down. However what makes the hotel is the service and this was top notch. All staff from the checkin desk to those at the restaurant were extremely polite, pleasant and very helpful and this is why I would recommend the hotel. They are an asset to the hIlton chain and made our stay worthwhile.
