Spent a pleasant weekend here. Hotel staff very helpful about local parking restrictions. Very large comfortable bed & spacious bathroom. Only on 4th Floor and room looked out on to offices. Not too inspiring but we weren't that bothered. Well equipped gym and pleasant pool. Would have given this 5 stars if someone had been on hand to run through how to operate the equipment when I wanted to use it.
If you want to explore the City this is a very convenient location. Remember several cafes and sandwich outlets close at weekends. If you are driving in from the West, check out the access route first. Best to use the Embankment and take a left turn just past Blackfriars Bridge underpass
Use some airmiles to book, so the trip was good value. Wouldn't pay the £200+ per night walk in rate.
Convenient bus stop with buses to The Tower, Charing Cross and Oxford Street just around the corner opposite St Pauls.
On the down side is the wait for the lifts in the main lobby but there are extra lifts at the other end of the building. Also a bit dissappointing that there was no complimentary water in the rooms
