We spent 5 nights at The Royal Horseguards. The stay got of to a rocky start. When we arrived the power was out due to some nearby construction. Even though we were guaranteed an exectutive room with a river view, we were given a small interior room with no view and frosted windows. The desk claimed it was one of the few rooms available with power. We went out to dinner and when we came back the power was back on and I requested a better room, but the desk clerk did not want to let us change rooms. Only when I asked for a manager did the clerk relent and give us a room with a river view. There were probems with the new room. The heat could not be regulated and there was no hot water available, forcing cold showers in the morning. We were then given an outstanding room on the 8th floor. Room 818. It is a large king room with a great view and a jacuzzi.
The hotel is in a quiet neighborhood that is central to many attractions. It is only 500 feet from the Embankment Tube Station. Travel around London is easy on "The Tube".
Breakfast was included in our rate and it was good but after 5 days of the same food, it was a little boring.
