The hotel is in an amazing location, specifically by the Buckingham palace, Buckingham gate. All the tourism attractions are 5-10 minutes drive away. Thank you to all those who made the stay comfortable and unforgettable.

The service at this property is top notch. From the reception, housekeeping, etc. The continental breakfast is worth it if included in the price. The location could not be better for Buckingham Palace & The St. James's tube stop. --- Wait! Please be advised that not all rooms have updated bathrooms. I booked a Classic Jr. Suite and the bathroom... More

We stayed in the hotel for 5 days. The location is perfect, near Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Houses of Parliament and Victoris Station. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The staff is very kind and helpful. We will come back on our next visit to London.

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.
