Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

We recently concluded a five night stay at this wonderful hotel and we continue to be impressed with the property but their real competitive advantage is their associates. Upon arrival in the morning from the US, our rooms were not ready and a young lady in our group was not fee

The hotel is tucked away in Whitehall but close to everything - nice quiet spot with a traditional feel.

Restaurant and bar are great, service is top drawer and the

Does this hotel have American-style electrical outlets in the rooms?
I had a room 3 years ago that had American outlets but my last two rooms did not. So I guess it depends on which room you get. I suggest picking up an adapter to be safe. I bought one at the airport last year for $20 that works in both the UK & EU.

"If you really HAVE to stay here call them. Don't book over the web site. They bait & switch rooms."
"Get a room that faces the river for the view (worth the con of occasional emergency vehicle noise). Basic rooms are a little small."
"choose any room"
"make sure it faces the Thames"
"Ask for an upgrade that looks over the courtyard park in the back of the hotel."
