    Even the suites are small but they are in Europe compared to the US. Only enough room to walk around the bed. Thought it was pricey but it is right in the middle of everything. Probably would not stay here again. Staff 5 Stars!!!

    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
