If you fancy the TV show Dallas, and would like to stay at a 80's top Hilton Hotel to get that cowboy feelin' - then The Strand is for you. Located just 500 metres or so from city centre, it boasts great views of the river and can guarantee a very quiet nights sleep. Check in and check out is painfree, the bulletproof elevators whisk you to your desired floor and once you enter your room you'll immediately notice how extra large it is compared to, say, a New York standard room - at any hotel. And you'll notice that wall-to-wall carpets are present along with a host of neat features such as a marble desk, marble table, marble lamps and marble bathroom. All in that colour brownish. There were some wear and tear factors but since I only stayed one night I cannot go into details other than random scratches here and there, missing lamp-cover screws and a socket for your electric shaver which has seen too many electric shavers.
Bed is huge and soft, with a wide array of pillows.
Breakfast overall good experience but missed the freshly squeezed juices I've come to love (London Double-Tree currently owns my breakfast of the year award).
