My husband and I stayed here for three nights in early November. We decided to stay a bit out of the way as we prefer quiet and low key at night and this hotel is perfect if that’s what you’re after. We used the transport service from Heathrow arranged by the hotel which is well worth the 90 GBP to be met within the airport and to have somebody help with your luggage. It was a long drive through London to get to Canary Wharf (over an hour), but maybe we were just anxious to get to the hotel after flying all night from America. Upon arriving at the hotel, we were met at the door and taken directly to our room – no waiting around the lobby for check-in, which was very nice. The view from our room was outstanding – the hotel is directly on the Thames and it's absolutely stunning at night. We found the property to be up to Four Seasons' standards. The service was just as you'd expect – everybody is very friendly and helpful. We took a Black Taxi Tour (londonblacktaxitours.com), with owner Michael Churchill, our first morning which I highly recommend. The Thames Clipper (river ferry) dock is just steps from the hotel so we used that to get to central London along with the Tube – both are very easy and the Tube station is only a ten-minute walk from the hotel. Either of them will have you in central London within 20 minutes, which includes the walk to the station. There are several restaurants and bars within walking distance of the hotel, and on weekday nights, they’re hopping with well-dressed business people. We did eat at the hotel restaurant each morning for breakfast which was very good and actually not too terribly expensive considering it’s a Four Seasons. We also ate dinner here one night. My husband and I both had the lobster risotto and it was delicious. Also, on Fridays, all of their wines are 50% off in the restaurant and lobby bar which makes it a great deal. The hotel is in the business district which is a very nice, clean, safe, hip area, but the surrounding area is a ghost town on the early weekend mornings – not even the Starbucks were open. There’s a coffee/pastry shop next door, but it doesn’t open until about 10 a.m. on the weekends. I would highly recommend the Four Seasons Canary Wharf if you’re looking for an upscale, quiet hotel a bit out of the city but within easy reach.
