My wife and I decided to spend our 25th wedding anniversary in London as we honeymooned there. Our travel agent suggested the Royal Horseguards Hotel. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted, wished a Happy Anniversary and shown to our room. We were in room 641 which had an exceptional view of the river. The building is historic, full of character...

We stayed as a last minute birthday treat. Everything was perfect from the call before we arrived to see if the staff could help with anything, to the welcome and the room.

We stayed 2 nights, it was nice. The staff was really friendly, accommodating and helpful. The place looked nice and clean and classy. I just loved the horse paintings as well as the horses etched in the glass panels in the lobby. Great place, would absolutely stay there again.

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster 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 highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
