City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.

Dear Lezells, Thank you for your review. Please accept our apologies for the issues that you encountered during your stay. I am glad to read that you had a good nights sleep and found our signature Clayton beds very comfortable. We do indeed have a very busy hotel and in turn a very busy reception desk a times with many arrivals and departures per day especially at weekends. I note from your reservation that you had booked an executive double room for two people and requested at check in for this to be changed to a twin room. I am glad that we were able to give you a twin room at no extra cost. It was taking a little longer than usual to load some channels on our television system, I am glad that this now has been rectified - thank you for this feedback. I have passed your comments onto our food and beverage manager regarding your breakfast experience to ensure that we improve on this going forward. Thank you again for taking the time to post a review. Clayton Hotel City of London
