We stayed here in mid April celebrating our wedding anniversary and as a late treat for my 30th birthday. The hotel is in a fantastic location on the Albert Embankment, situated between Vauxhall and Lambeth Bridges. Westminster and the Southbank are a 10 - 15 minute walkaway depending on your pace. The hotel is modern, clean and spacious with plenty of attentive staff on hand to offer advice and assistance. We stayed in one of the suites which we booked through our Club Carlson points. Our room was fantastic with panoramic views over the Thames and Westminster, we've stayed in London quite a few times and without a doubt this is the best view that we've had. The rooms were spacious, well kept and generously appointed with a balcony linked between the bedroom and lounge, a kitchenette, 2 flat screen TVs, a washing machine, coffee maker, kettle and walk in shower with a wide range of complimentary toiletries. As we had mentioned the special occassion at the time of booking the hotel gaves us a bottle of wine and a small box of chocolates as a gift which was a nice touch. On the day of our check out they also offered to securely store our luggage until we were ready which really helped as we had a busy day before leaving the city and would be passing the hotel on our way home.
If we had the oppurtunity we would have no hesistation in staying here again. We've stayed in a lot of hotels in both the UK and USA and this one is easily up there with the best.
