This hotel is very nice. We stayed for my boyfriends birthday on sunday. When we arrived we were upgraded to the executive suite. Wow! It was lovely! It had its own coffee machine - a bit like the one we have at home but also having smart glass in the shower (turns opaque to clear at a click of a button) was a unique feature.
The bed was very comfy, the room also had a Bose soundsystem for iPhones (4 and 4s) compatibility. The room also provided robe and slippers. We had breakfast - book the day before and get a voucher, it's cheaper. Breakfast was very tasty and well cooked.
Travelling to London took 40 mins by tube from excell. You have to change lines 2 times.
Location of hotel was nice. It sits next to the docklands so is quite scenic and you can see the O2 and emirates cable cars from the restaurant. It's about 5 mins away from O2 via cable car and it takes about 5 mins to walk to cable car. You can pick up water taxi from O2 that will take you to central london if you want alternative transport other than tube.
My only advice, don't trust your sat nav!! We travelled up on Saturday afternoon to check in for 14.00 but due to my sat nav having a breakdown, we got there at 15.30! Just follow signs for excel.
Will definitely book this hotel again.
Thanks for a great weekend
