Booked at fairly short notice in order to take the kids to the theatre during Easter. The hotel is in a great location, close to Embankment tube station, on a quiet street. It is within easy walking distance to all West End theatres, Galleries and restaurants. Check in was professional and courteous and the lobby area is spacious and friendly....

Our family recently traveled to London for a family vacation and we absolutley loved this property. Just the right amount of elegance without feeling stuffy. You can't beat the location for walking to The London Eye, Trafalgar Square, St. James Park, Buckingham Palace, Houses of Parliament, etc. Anything that was not close was easily accessed by the Underground with the...

I've stayed at this hotel twice, and I love it! I experienced excellent service from start to finish, from the doorman to the reception stuff to concierge to servers, etc, etc. I was early, and my room was not ready, but accepted reception's advice, and went for a Deluxe rather than Executive. The room was spacious, clean, well decorated, and...

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood 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.
