The Novotel was very easy to find as it's right next to the ExCel centre. You have the choice of 2 DLR stations, parking (although quite expensive) and the Air-Line cable car to get there.
The check-in was easy and very quick. The reception area is quite large and very nicely laid out. We had an executive room on the 9th floor which had a great view across London. The room seemed to be newly refurbished and very clean and modern. There was a desk with good connectivity ports for gadgets and laptops. The free WiFi was good as well.
The shower was odd at first as you could see from the shower through the glass window into the bedroom, however there was a button that turned the glass wall opaque so you can't see through it. I loved this, it was a nice touch.
Unfortunately we had some pretty severe storms on the day of our stay and it caused a leak from the roof into our bathroom. I notified reception and they responded straight away by moving us into a similar room on the 8th floor - so double the free biscuits :).
I'd recommend staying here. The travel across London isn't direct most of the time as your restricted to the DLR and Emirates Air-Line, (excluding buses and taxis) but they're quick and the Jubilee is close at both Canning Town and North Greenwich (The O2). I would love to stay here again.
