We have stayed at this hotel on two occasions and thoroughly enjoyed our stay both times. The location is fabulous as you can walk to theaters, parks, shopping, Buckingham Places and many great restaurants and pubs. Would highly recommend it to friends.

The location is amazing. It's just a couple of blocks from the Charing Cross Tube station, which allows for the tube and national trains. This made it easy to get to the Gatwick airport faster than by car and for less than 16GBP one way. it's about a 10-15 minute walk to Big Ben and Westminster Abbey, and less than... More

Stayed at the Grand for one night whilst we ate at the Ivy and required a central hotel close to Covent Garden. We were not disappointed. As soon as the hotel found out that we were celebrating our 33rd wedding anniversary, they sent a bottle of wine and a goody basket (sweets/snacks etc) to our room; a really nice touch.... More

This hotel exceeded my expectations in the friendliness of the staff and the size of the room. Usually European hotels that offer great location get by with tiny rooms that lack in amenities. The Grand rooms were spacious and clean; the bathrooms are small but serviceable. The refillable water bottles down the hall were a very nice perk! The service... More

This is one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in-just awful. I stayed here for a business trip and was so disappointed because reviews on Trip Advisor seemed overall good. The hotel is very worn looking and outdated, the bedding was dirty (literally stained), the air conditioning barely worked and smelled awful (smoke or mold) when it was... More

It is our goal here at Club Quarters to provide the best in service and accommodations and it’s clear we did not succeed on this occasion.

Truly enjoyed staying at this hotel. We were pleasantly surprised to find out the actual street it was on was not touristy at all. Amazing location, close to everything. The room was clean and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We will be staying here during our next visit.

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.
