Great value for a 5 star hotel. Friendly and helpful staff. Room was a bit smaller than others but very well equipt and modern. Breakfast was brilliant; great variety of hot and cold. Even spotted a celebrity in the bar.

For me this is the most comfortable hotel in London. There might be swankier, there might be more luxurious etc. But they are always superb on reception, friendly and helpful.

The hotel is in a perfect location. Steps from St. James's Park, right on the Thames embankment overlooking the Eye, and just around the corner from a tube station. The interior doesn't quite match the stunning facade, but is still lovely. The service was wonderful - particularly the bellboys and reception staff. The room was nice, if not too luxurious....

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.
