We stayed for 2 nights in an Executive room overlooking the river. The room was not ready upon arrival (this was after 3.15pm) but we were upgraded and it was well worth the initial wait. The room was clean, elegant and with a large modern bathroom. We had maid service twice a day - be sure to illuminate the 'make...

The hotel is perfectly situated for walking to all the sites in Westminster and nearby, and the Embankment underground is just a few feet away. We easily walked to Trafalgar and the theater district, as well as Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, and Covent Garden. Our room was small but clean and pleasantly decorated. Staff was friendly and...

Stayed here with my sister in a double deluxe room. At check in I requested a view of the river & we were put in Rm 836 which was perfect! I could not have imagined a better view & experience.

A four night stay in London with my family was made so special by the hotel.

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.
