We booked this as a secret hotel through LastMinute for just the day before our wedding weekend, and what an amazing surprise! We requested a late check out on the Sunday which was not a problem, and arrived to find our room had been upgraded to a junior suite. The room had modern fittings and amenities, and we particularly liked the rain shower and Molton Brown products!

Room service was great, and the staff went out of their way to ensure we had a wonderful stay, including a hand-written card from the manager. The cherry on top was arriving back to our room after our wedding to find complimentary champagne awaiting us, along with a card from the staff.

Taxi drivers are not yet aware of the hotel, so it might take a couple of minutes for the doorman to grab one for you, but it won't take long for word to get out. I only wished I was able to order from an All Day Breakfast menu on Sunday, but unfortunately this finishes at 11.30am.

All in all, fabulous!

The hotel it's self looks and feels very new, the reception area & bar area look great, though it was very quite on arrival, i can see it being a very cool & buzzy place to be once it's fully opened. Also the location is great, its a stone throw away from St. James Park Station.

On entering the hotel we were greeted by two very friendly door men, we were checked in at reception by a very nice man, who's name i didn't catch, but he was very customer focused and was eager to please. This was around 5pm on Sunday 9th, so management please pass on our thanks to him, we were then shown where the lifts were by another lovely man.

The room we stayed in was a studio suite, it was quite large, all fixtures and fittings were high end it was a lovely looking room, the mini bar choice was slightly limited but I'm not going to get hung up on something so trivial, as everything else was so great. The bed was so comfy and had lovely sheets, rest assured you will have a good nights sleep. The bathroom was large, and wow the shower was great, great soft towels with Malton Brown toiletries is a lovely touch.

We ordered room service and ordered fish and chips and sausage and mash i recommend you get an extra side order of the chips as you don't really get many with the fish and chip dish it's self but it was a huge fish portion and the had cut chips were great, but both dishes were very tasty overall.

This hotel is lovely and i think the stand out thing for me, were the team of people they have working there, they all make you feel special and valued.

I would recommend this hotel to all.

Thanks for making our trip enjoyable.

We called in for a drink on Saturday night 7th December, just a couple of weeks after opening and we were knocked out by the decor, the staff, the comfort and the value for money. We will definitely try and stay next time and have a meal in the Blue Boar Smokehouse. Very impressed. Good luck to the company and hotel management.

The new Intercontinental Westminster has just opened but it seems there are no issues with soft opening; the hotel and service was run very smoothly. Located directly opposite St. James' Park station it is very easy to find.

The doormen were exceptionally proactive and courteous, providing a great first impression for the hotel.

Reception staff were still getting used to the computer system but it was dealt with seamlessly and the friendly attitude of the staff (Anna who checked me in) was exemplary.

The hotel decor is modern and with comfortable furnishings throughout.

I was upgraded to a King Club room on the top (6th) floor and provided with a complementary fruit platter and handwritten welcome card from the manager, Scot, which was a nice touch.

The room was a good size with plenty of room for the desk area and open plan lobby when you go in. Furnishings were again a high standard and the TV is something rather unique, built in to a floor to ceiling glass unit.

The Nespresso machine had a decent range of pods provided and I was pleased to see the bathroom had Molton Brown toiletries. A separate rain shower in the bathroom was great and the all-marble fittings suited the style. The bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet despite looking out onto a busy street.

Room service was prompt and friendly, and the food was equally good.

When it came to check-out, the receptionist was keen to check I was satisfied with my stay and encouraged me to visit again, which I am sure I will.

Overall a superb hotel with staff that are clearly eager to please. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front of the hotel; some at the back look directly into offices.

Even though the hotel has just opened it is already super organised and looks amazing. Brilliant food and friendly and professional staff. Fantastic location really close to Westminster Abbey and The Houses of Parliament. The best thing in the hotel is the bar which has loads of comfy sofas to relax in. One thing - they need to serve breakfast earlier as there is so much to do in the area you want to get up and up - but when I did got it- it was lovely.

Stayed here on an exceptionally cheap rate through a deal with lastminute. I didnt have the opportunity to make use of all the facilities but I cannot commend the staff highly enough for their service. Excellent quick check in and check out. Friendly doormen.

Rooms were 5* and because they are brand new they are a step above others in town. I even had a couple of nice beers out of the minibar which I requested be added to my bill and was told I could have free of charge. Internet is expensive; however it is exceptionally quick unlike many hotels.

Hope to stay here again.
