Trafalgar Square / Embankment
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters. Along the way to these major sites are quiet lanes and antiquated pubs to discover, as well as riverside vistas to enjoy on the embankment. With a calendar full of celebratory events, any time of year is a fine time to visit.

Yes, I believe so There is a very nice bar on the first floor beside the main restaurant where I am sure you could have a coffee and a meeting and it would be very good and private compared with other high street coffee shops.

The choice in the regular breakfast is wider but the one in the lounge is a bit more chic with berries and nice cheeses.

Dear GoPlaces31285007614, thank you for your enquiry. Our standard rooms are very competitive in terms of size and layout on London market. If you are looking for a sofa to unwind after a long day out, or staying for a long period of time,we would recommend an Executive room. From this category or higher you also have access to our Executive Lounge where breakfast, and snacks and drinks are provided free of charge till 7pm. Please do get in touch if you would like more information and I am happy to assist. Kind regards Pedro da Silva General Manager

Is there an adapter in the room for a US 120V or do I have to bring my own to charge my phone?
By the way, your phone adapter is smart enough to adjust to different line voltages (120 or 220V) so what you buy is a simple plug for the wall socket.

"Ask for a high floor room."
"The main building facing the Strand has a great view. The other building - less.... but all and all - this is not a big issue"
"If there is an elderly or disabled person, a room close to the lifts would be advised"
"Ask to be in a room away from the station which can be quite noisy"
"A room in the main building would be easier to access."
$228 - $442 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
